Some of the most common characteristics include low self-esteem, jealousy, feelings of emptiness or inadequacy, unfriendliness, and a tendency to be introverted.
Middle children tend to feel that they are unseen, so they may suffer from low self-esteem. Even if they are capable of doing something, they may constantly ask for your help in order to get your attention. That old saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease," tends to be something that middle children live by. They tend to beat themselves up over the tiniest of failures and do not set goals for themselves.
I don't think so. Not only are CO, STO, and NW very different games, they are wholly different generas, and thus have massively different sources of appeal. I sincerely doubt that NW is going to be the crowd stealer that all the doomsayers claim it to be. Star Trek and D&D are very different things, honestly, the only people that should be quaking in their boots is DDO.
Considering how Cryptic has essentially put Champions Online into virtual maintenance mode (it still gets very occassional new content); and have stated a couple of times that their games receive funding based on performance (Infering tnhat CO is not currently performing at the same level STO is profit wise0; unless players abandon STO in droves for NeverWinter; and affect the income STO generates for Cryptic/PWE -- I don't see much danger in NW significantly affecting STO development one way or the other.
STO will continue to stand on its own merits, one way or the other. If it's income maintains or increases, things will continue as they are. If STO income decreases, it remains to be seen what changes (if any) will be made to the development side.

PWE Drone says, "Your STO community as you have known it is ended...Display names are irrelevant...Any further sense of community is irrelevant...Resistance is futile...You will be assimilated..."
Also, STO seems to be the best licensed MMO ever made. Sure, that's not a spectacularly high bar, but an achievement nothing less. We don't have anything really to worry about, particularly if we get that really shiny new tech!
