How well would you say it captures the authentic starship experience?
It was awesome but somewhat chaotic and confusing. Being captain of five people who've never played before, haven't read all the rules, and are shouting at once leads to very little productivity. That said, we did manage to kill 2/3 of the enemy forces in the mission, including a Skaraan Executor, which we discovered later was kind of a beast. Next session, we'll endeavor to have that information at hand ahead of time.
If we get way into this, I may spend some time doing some tutorial videos for other future crews, maybe even use the mission editor to create some in-game tutorial missions.
