From what I understand every ship is being changed to a dilithium purchase, even the ones we pay EC for. No more free ships when you rank up either, gotta grind even for those now.
I'm sure the premium ships will have their C-Store option, along with costing more than the base ship via dilithium.
All they have to do when they 'rebalance' the economy is make everything expensive as all get out and boom, instant desire for people to buy dilithium. Couple that with new items coming out, make them nice, make them expensive to further that desire.
They're putting a lot of things on the dilithium system. Anything you can buy with exploration tokens, emblems, badges, whatever, will all be dilithium. Makes for a huge demand with a limited supply short of mind numbing grinding and its easy to see where they're going with it.
