WoW was like this as well at launch, it was a royal pain if you played a hybrid and wanted to heal/buff yourself.

Eventually they added a couple of options: Auto self cast, which if you casted a buff or heal and you had a hostile or nothing targeted it would cast on yourself; and Alt-Cast, which allowed you to hold in the alt key when casting a buff/heal and it would cast it on yourself if you were targeting a friendly (allowed you to heal yourself without dropping your target if you were spam/focus healing someone).

I'd really like to see both implemented in STO.

EDIT: These could be easily turned off/on through the ingame options in WoW, and I would imagine if implemented here would be done similarly, providing for those that like the current system to not have to change their playstyle.

This is indeed what I'm hoping happens.

I'm a Tact in an Escort... my only defensive skill is Sci Team 2... you better believe I need to use it on myself 99% of the time whenever I use it.

Disable Assist Target in the controls area of the options.
