Keep in mind that you are not as sad as them and keep on trucking, for fun and adventure
I choose my ships based on how much they make me smile when I look at them. I'm not in a fleet so I don't have fleet ships. Apart from the Galor for my Fed Tac and a few mirrors I wouldn't touch any lockbox or lobi ship with a very long pole.
I hold my own in PvP, I fill my role better than most in STFs, and I have a lot of fun letting my characters (who are really just extensions of different aspects of my own personality) explore the wonders of the galaxy. Explore and kill Borg.
How do you win a game like STO? Simple. You find ways make yourself smile. Whether that's making some joker in a BoP suck warp plasma when he thinks he's sneaking up on your cruiser for an easy kill, whether that's getting surrounded by borg tactical drones and hack/slashing your way to safety with your trusty bat'leth, whether its discovering a cleverly written and amusing Foundry mission, or whether its suddenly finding yourself severely outmatched and discovering a new interesting way to die.
Its a game. Games are supposed to be fun. Have fun and you win the game.
