Re: Novels with HUGE battles?

Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire opens with pretty epic battle, concurrent to Destiny. The rest of the novel is space-battle-free IIRC.

Voyager: Children of the Storm has some chaotic fighting.

Before Dishonor features some insanely outrageous fighting between a Borg super cube, a planet killer (it's actually a sequel of sorts to Vendetta) and the Enterprise-E. There's also a mutiny and... someone dies.

I don't know if it fits your definition of "large scale" or not, but "The Wounded Sky" has an excellent battle scene between the Enterprise and a squadron of Klingons, at least 7 or 8 ships if memory serves. The Klingons do all of the actual shooting but (spoiler alert) the Big E comes out on top.
That was a cool battle, but it should be pointed out that it's very different from the battles in TV/film Trek, and how some technology works and the effects of warp drive around stars is totally different to what is generally currently accepted.
Star Trek Imponderables, fun mashups of Trek's biggest continuity errors! Ep1, Ep2 and Ep3
