I realised it is the absence of any tangible reward that keeps me from playing the fleet (as in Season 6) missions. Getting only marks that by themselves aren't of any use just doesn't cut it (they're only good for fleet base projects, IF you spend a lot of other stuff along the way).
Now I get the same feeling about the new Season 7 missions. And, which is far worse, even about STFs, unless they at least keep current Dil rewards (it's ridiculous, anyway, one elite gives you enough Omega marks for a couple days worth of projects, but again, you gotta get the other stuff as well).
And if STFs were to become just a "mark generating tool", I'd loose the last "playing part" of the game. Since getting ressources and doffs and whatever from the exchange, replicator, NPC vendors and filling it in either starbase's or reputation's projects is not playing. That seems like paperwork and growing bureacracy I'm already spending half the time in game with. Just saying...
On the other hand, give those missions something, like dilithium or/and at least some Mk XI rare loot, and there is reason to play, or replay those missions on a regular basis.
