Part of science fiction is SCIENCE
Strictly speaking, Star Trek isn't science fiction, it's fantasy.

A short story 5 to 10 pages, a medium story 10 to 20 pages, or a long story 20 pages and up?
An interesting story, however long it needs to be for the author to tell it.
There something to be said for bringing a story to a successful conclusion, in a timely fashion. Not all stories have to endlessly ramble out to novel length. Because my schedule doesn't have t a lot of space for recreational reading, I prefer short stories.

Well, that's my point. If it rambles i stop reading no matter how long or short it is. If it keeps me intersted every step of the way I can read a novel length story easily.
