** In a frightening case, the T6 Temporal Light Cruiser/Light Warbird, better known as the mythical endgame ''Constitution'', D7 Battlecruiser and ''T'liss'' Warbird. All three ships use the Molecular Reconstruction Temporal power have ''three'' Lt. Commander BOFF seatings (Science, Universal and either Tactical or Engineering, depending on the ship), a 5/3 weapon layout (5/2 on the ''T'liss'') and 4 Tactical Console slots. The ''Constitution'' has the best turn rate of all Federation-centric cruisers at 11.5 (the Intel Cruiser and the Ranger/Paladin are second best at 10) and, worst of all, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking even has access to the Tier 2 costume line, so you can dress it up as the Connie Refit!]]

** If you're a tacscort, there's a fed mission that went pretty smoothly until you get to the final part, where you need to fight 3 Romulan/Borg combo ships, which will drain your shields and hold you with tractor mines, basically killing you in seconds since, as a tacscort, you ''really'' have to move quickly to kill stuff. Even worse if you're wielding cannons, since that means you'll likely never get to attack properly.

Even worse if you're wielding cannons, since that means you'll likely never get to attack properly.

** The ending of the Iconian War. A diplomatic solution (intended interpretation) or TheBadGuyWins ([[http://forum.arcgames.com/startrekonline/discussion/comment/12712445/#Comment_12712445 see here]])? Or even something in between (the Iconians did ''not'' get what they wanted when they began the War, while the Alliance achieved its stated primary goal... but only because the Iconians changed their minds at the last minute, they still get no comeuppance whatsoever or even promise to try to atone for what they did before)?

** According to dev "Tacofangs", [[spoiler:T'Ket's continued war against our heroes at the end of "Midnight"]] is supposed to essentially explain why the Iconian queues are still going, even after the story's over. This is a case where the AuthorsSavingThrow actually makes things worse, though: previously the queues' continuation after the story was over had been regarded as simply a [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality necessity of the medium]]. Providing an in-universe rationalization just added to the preexisting dissatisfaction with DeusExMachina BadGuyWins ending of the Iconian War where the Iconians basically say "oops, our bad" and wander off without getting anything resembling a comeuppance for their murder of billions of people.

** The lobi store Vengeance Class has quickly earned a reputation as being awe-inspiringly powerful, with intel powers, two types of hybrid setting, a great boff layout (including a universal lt command seat), a hanger bay, a cloaking device, 5/3 weapons, the ability to use dual cannons, and respectable shields and HP. On a ship several hundred years out of date. Player reaction has been....mixed.

** Admiral Tuvok, not only for being a canon character but also for being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, and the most DangerouslyGenreSavvy person in-game.

* IdiotPlot: "House Pegh". The player is railroaded through a mission with Klingons who claim to be black-ops specialists...who then immediately beam in [[spoiler:Kahless]] and go along with his stupid plan to attack an [[AGodAmI Iconian]] in "honorable combat". You are not allowed to offer any serious protests to this, even as a Federation or Romulan player. [[spoiler:Kahless]]'s attack is exactly as unsuccessful as you'd expect, and it takes a [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect Klingon scientist]] {{technobabble}}'ing down the Iconian's shields to allow him to harm it. Then, with the Iconian on the ground and injured, [[spoiler:Kahless]] [[WhatAnIdiot takes the moment]] [[TooDumbToLive to gloat at length about honor]]. Predictably, the Iconian kills him, leaving [[spoiler:the Sword of Kahless]] just lying there as the PC and the incompetent so-called elite hit team run away in terror from a couple of low-level Herald mooks. Backlash on the forums was ''intense''.
