You can also click on a target's target to switch targets. I do this all the time -- click on a friendly damage dealer's target to assist him in getting the kill, or click on an enemy damage dealer's target to send heals and/or preemptive resists quickly. Helps if you move the "target of target" display somewhere more handy.
Heh. I wouldn't add an Eve-style target overview to STO. Such an overview would permit far better fire coordination among players. Judging by your community, this is something you don't want - soon, your "PVP" (heh HEH quotes) forums would be clogged with the tears of bears who got repeatedly insta-popped by a well focused group of foes that knows how to pick targets out of a group.
This already happens, even without voice communication. All it takes is a keybind that spams team chat with "Focus fire on >>> target <<<"
