I sincerely wish that forum posters would finally and firmly grasp this simple easy concept.
You can call STO whatever sort of "game" type that you can wrap your brain around.
But nothing will change the simple fact that STO has massive amounts of multiple players all online together role playing this game.
The highlighted section is counter to everything you said above it.
You are playing alongside hundreds of other players - you interact with them, you fight along side them, you trade with them, you chat with them, you build starbases together - they exist in the game. To put blinders on and go, "lalalala, I can't hear that you are a Vice Admiral too, because
the only Vice Admiral in the game" is ludicrous.
