STO love and hate
 
Let me just start by saying the new content is very interesting and it will be wonderful to get a chance to really enjoy it on holodeck. Now onto the problem, over time something has been creeping up onto STO, starting as a mild occasional consideration but gradually growing worse and worse. As new content has been added, its growth accelerated. Now this monster has become so bloated that it obstructs gameplay. This problem is inventory management. It is a sad practical side of life... which should not be emulated by a video game intended for diversion. There are so many unnecessary inventory-currencies in the game that I'm left choosing between cool equipment and the dozens of inputs needed for acquiring even more cool equipment. We need either a significantly elevated bank space, a change in the way currencies are handled so as to no longer be inventory items, or for more currencies to be collapsed and amalgamated. I would suggest that seeing as how underdeveloped the research side of STO is, that the two dozen some research currencies be amalgamated until the inventory issues are addressed and research/exploration is overhauled.

Season 7 is really going to clean up a lot of
That

All Borg currencies 42 of them being eliminated
Replaced with 3 I believe

How is that for service

Loot drops are being reduced dramatically as
Well so you won't be bothered with those pesky
26.2 console drops and stuff like that

But to be realistic, there is only one borg currency people actually hold onto, EDCs. All others could be immediately converted into something useable or into EDCs. And they added many mission and doff mission items which effectively act like new currencies and aggravate the existing inventory bloat issue.

The 42 borg currencies just got replaced with 42 romulan currencies, the amount of CRAP you get on New Romulus is staggeringly excessive. How many rocks, plants, research, tags, etc do we really need in our inventory from this place?

Absolutely right. I posted in the New Romulus Feedback thread that these items need to become virtual inventory items or have an automated tracking system on New Romulus. Too much crap to carry around, and then add in the DOFF mission supply drops as well (e.g., Jenovite, tullaberries, etc.).
