Cool verifiable numbers. Any idea what the Starfleet vendors pay out?
It's not a rumor, it's been that way since Beta. You get 40% the value from the replicator and non-Starfleet vendors. You get 50% value from Starfleet vendors. So if you sell to the replicator, you only get 80% of what you could make selling at Starbase 1, which adds up over time.
I recommend checking every item on the exchange before vendoring, as some are in more demand than others. With the 20 lots cap back in place, players will be more limited in how many common items they can (and would want to) put onto the market, which directly affects supply and demand. It should (theoretically) help sellers find buyers for loot.
