They could add some in-game benefits for that (bonus XP, accolades, emblems), but I think that should be about it.

Creating UGC is something you do because you want to create content and find this fun. That's your reward. Your mere peresence in this game is also "content" that Cryptic uses to sell it! You are "content" for the other players I interact with. If there weren't a lot of us, there probably wouldn't be any of us, because space would be empty, Fleet Actions unsolvable, PvP Queues wouldn't pop, STFs wouldn't be completed.

Creating the UGC system isn't "free" to Cryptic, either. It takes dev time and thus resources.
