This game is very escort-centric. This is a recognised issue with the game. Considering that Star Trek was NOT designed to be a series revolving around combat I think it needs to be changed. I play this game PRIMARILY because it's Trek and I can assure you that I'm not the only one. I want a more Trek experience.

Let's look at the current reputations.

Omega - You have to stop the Borg. The Borg don't negotiate so I can understand that combat is a big part of it, but you also help the people of Defera resist the Borg. This sounds VERY Trek to me.

Romulan - You're helping the Romulans build a home for themselves. Some of it is combat but you can also help them by doing animal research, repairing stuff, motivating their people and other assorted tasks. This sounds VERY Trek to me.

Possible PvP - Blow up other people. Hmmm. Not very Trek to me...

As for escorts, no, they shouldn't be nerfed, but they do need to be adjusted. Here's a thread where I outlined some changes that could be made to them that would require some buffs to them to make them perform more like they do on tv.

The issue with escorts is their tanking ability combined with their huge DPS. Make the escort a ship that needs to move to stay alive and you've got yourself some VERY dynamic combat.
