I don't care what they are called either. I think they use the word 'raid' in there to let other MMO players know that this is 'end-game' or difficult content.
What I would like is the ability to create a group that is larger than 5 people. In WoW, that is called a raid. In STO, it could be called a Task Force.
Why larger than 5 people? Because I would like to be able to organise and communicate with an entire Fleet Action, perhaps even take my own Fleet into one. Same for content that allows >5 players (e.g., 10v10 PVP maps).
