LOL. I think the OP has a good idea and I hate EVE.
Things that STO does better than EVE:
1. FTL travel in STO isn't centered around jumpgates and the gate-camping that it brings with it. If I want to go from Sol to New Romulus, I don't have to jump through 14 different jump gates, and 3 gate camps to do it.
2. The skill system in STO is much more rewarding. I don't have to wait 3 months, 2 weeks, 5 days, and 37 minutes for my next skill to train up. In STO if I do a mission and blow some stuff up, I can reasonably expect to earn a new skill rank. Not so for EVE!
3. Consensual PVP makes a better community. I can explore sectors of space in STO without needing to take an expendable ship, and without any overwhelming sense of paranoia. In the past I have even had requests from strangers to beam onto the bridge of my ship because they wanted to check it out (which I granted). Would you do that on EVE? In 0.0 you don't trust ANY ONE.
EVE trolls can go back to the EVE forums. Enjoy your cruddy game.
