For the ships, I just feel like they move slow and turn like molasses. Once again it's very slow. Granted, I not a fan of space combat in general, but the few games I have liked the ships movement was much better.

In entire game IMO just needs to be sped up in general, from the speed of ground combat, to the ships, etc.

I'm actually a fan of Star Trek, not a huge fan, but big enough the the universe alone had me excited. After a couple of weeks that wore off. I guess the bigger the Star Trek fan the longer it will take but I have a feeling that it's going to happen to a lot of people after the first month or two of release.
Star Trek's never been about speed and blazing guns... suppose to be a slower paced environment where using your noggin beats brute force... I hope they keep to that and make lots of problems and situations/quest where you have think to find a solution...
