I actually think the Honor Harrington novels, though not Star Trek actually get quite close to what you are describing. Just replace sidewalls and impeller wedges with Deflector Shields, laserhead missiles with photon torpedoes and their graser weapons as phasers.
Agreed. Weber does the battle very convincingly.
If only he wouldn't babble on about fictional politics for chapters on end...
I don't mind the politics, but I have to say that I definitely feel like I have been immersed in interstellar combat when I read a HH novel.
