Every MMO player base has an element that seeks to nerf other classes in order to promote their own class/abilities to overpowered status.
The one class that has suffered the most in STO has been the Science captain. Very, very few buffs...and LOTS of nerfs...there is a reason for that -- SCI captains fill that role that every MMO has of a class that specializes in roots/holds and general esoteric nastiness that other players find difficult to counter -- mostly because it requires a bit of thought in how they set up their vessels and select their skills.
I wish that a game -- specifically an MMO -- could find some sort of balance in this regard, and not merely implement change based on the squeaky wheel principle...but that is a pipe dream for the most part...
