You have to visit everyday to collect the games "energy" and daily rewards- it can be stressful to miss a day.
To upgrade characters, you need to collect items to do so; meaning you need to play levels over and over until you get the item you need. Moreso, to get some items, you need to play some levels on a harder degree- from Normal to Elite- which means 100% the Normal level. You can end up playing a level over and over before finally reaching Elite, then grinding even MORE to get the actual item!
You're encouraged to log in everyday to help defeat the Doomsday Machine; it can make you feel guilty to forget.
You have to wait for ships to come back, but the worst is the part that makes you wait for a ship to reach something, but if you leave then the ship may be "damaged", so you're forced to wattch and wait.
You feel obligated to collect all the characters and ships.
Part of the game relies on you to decide between races (Bajorians, Cardassians, or Jem'Hadar for example), and places emphasis on how your choice will change everything; it makes it very stressful to choose despite being pretty aubritrairy.
The game has ads showing off exclusive characters and rewards that entice you to play for longer.
The guilds, the arena area, and the rankings.
