Of course, all of the people farming that stupid thing are wasting their time anyway, the yield is absolutely terrible, and they're letting whiners leech their pay.
Um, not to jump at you or anything, but there are members of the STO community, myself included, that are achiever archetype (look it up) and are seeking the accolades sets of bosses. Are you saying your gameplay is more valid than mine?

Well here is my retort:

The marks are just candy as far as I am concerned. I dont even need them.

Do not justify your behavior or that of someone else with some garbage about "its ok to do it cause its design is beneficial to this type of player"

Who cares if its only 3 marks for "gasp" another 2 minutes of effort. And its actually 5 marks, for the record. About 55-60 all told for the whole instance.

Oh and the other thing, if you need to exploit the no-cd timer on fleet alerts for marks, youre seriously doing it wrong. I get over 300 a day (yes every day) just from running my commendation missions. I always have 3, and sometimes 4, ready to run. (not even 1 minute of time spent)
