If you appreciate something of a more 'deeper' experience in terms of gameplay, then EVE is the way to go if you don't mind the you know, steep learning curve
The politics and player involvement within the community is intense and i enjoy this simply because im taking IB finance/economy and whatever the hell not, market manipulation is crazy fun and ganking more so.
I got tired of Star Trek Online in the first few minutes of playing the beta, it's kinda stupid a mon avis.

I played EvE for years, taking the fight to BOB in the great war.

STO was a massive letdown for me. They took a solid IP and made it nothing but shiny, shallow gameplay. The space combat part is the only slightly redeeming factor, and even that is a spacebar-mash session.
EVE is a unique game in that it's totally open, and essentially anything goes. You have to get in the mindset that you are actually in that universe - think ruthless and you'll be fine. There are two games in EVE - PVE and 0.0 corp. In my opinion, EVE doesn't even get started until you get into a 0.0 corp. Being on comms, owning space, and fleet warfare are the only way to fly. No rules, no security hit, no CONCORD stepping in....
I've got 2 EVE accounts. I use one for marketing (2 toons, each sitting in market hub) an the other slot exists simply to build characters to sell. My other account is my PVP toon and my cyno alt. Feed them isk from the marketing character so I don't have to worry about ratting or other useless skills. The two accounts pay for themselves (you can use in-game money to purchase 30-day game time cards called PLEX's) by playing... so no money out of pocket.
If anyone ever needs a 21 day trial invite just lemme know

Yeah, I've set up a few trials of EVE because I enjoyed the first one I tried, but I just couldn't bring myself to fork out 15 quid a month for it when I pay less than half of that for WoW and a fiver for Xbox live.
I do think it's great though, really enjoyed it.
Star Trek online I've not played, but I have a pal who loves it. He's basically left WoW for it so that's a pretty good tell as he was hooked on wow ;-)

|Skull Harvester||I have a friend who Beta tested Star Trek, said he loved it. The idea of being able to customize not only yourself but crew and ship really appeals to me. I've always heard good things about EVE, but I do like the feeling of leveling up (which you don't do in EVE).|

I'm currently on a break from eve - I find they help when it all starts to feel a bit more like a job than a game.
I would however suggest that anyone who starts to play eve goes and finds a PvP corp who live in 0.0 and go play it as it was intended - a PvP game. It becomes a lot more interesting a lot more quickly this way (although the learning curve is a lot higher as far as learning what all the ships can do, finding targets quickly etc.)
ST:O I've been playing since release, I've hit cap, and it's just no fun any more. There's 1 x 5 man raid instance in place now, but all in all, it's just nowhere near as fun as eve.

|Holmstrom||There are a few people here that play it. WoRLoKKeD is one of them. My PC at the moment is unable to handle the game to the extent that I require so I'm out until I replace it. If I were able to, I would definitely assist people wishing to get in to Eve. For a while anyway.|

I played eve twice for about a month each time. I really liked it and thought it was a great game but I also thought it was rather boring.
The learning curve? I don't think it was that hard, if you are a quick thinker and have an IQ over 120. If not, it may be but I didn't notice that. Tale shooting your guns at optimal range. You can zoom out, turn on the range finder and command your ship to auto orbit a target at that range, so it's easy. Exit strategy would be just to make sure there are friendly areas nearby you can warp to and practice warping to these places while getting shot at (never leave your power dangerously low). You can also choose to warp within X kilometers, to dupe whoever might follow you.
My biggest qualm with it is that it's hard to ever meet anyone or make friends since for the most part you are just floating by yourself out in space. Maybe the big learning curve is in the coms system and how to use it to actually meet interesting people.
My suggestion is, if you want to get into eve, find some people who already do or a out of game guild that will let you join so that you avoid some of the difficulties I am talking about. That's what I would try to do if I wanted to get back in.
