Captain, I'm sensing something...

I cannot express
how happy I am
that you're giving me a 'pebble' of refined Dilithum large enough to
buy four Admiral/General level Ship Weapons from the Dilithium Vendor, knowing that hours and hours of my game time doing your QA work for you is worth so little to you truly warms my little heart.
about the way it's apparently
for you to put a bullet in the brain-pan of Fleet Crafting, in spite of the
of recommendations in P2F2P DB #14, STO Discussion, General Content Feedback, Tribble Economy Feedback, and nearly every other feedback route that include links to the Dilithium Economy and paths to the C-Store preserving your oh-so-important monetizing of every possible activity in the game.

Katic does have some good points, if any devs are listening...
I would honestly test a KDF character if I thought it was worth it (i.e. I'd get something out of it for my time in doing so). Sadly, I don't think there's enough for Klingons to do
today on Holodeck
to do that same amount of nothing on Tribble.
I'm also not at all convinced that I'm going to get the DOFF bonuses just for leveling up 4 ranks with DippyXP, vs. still not getting beyond Rank 1 in a few categories for the other DOFF tracks, esp. after the DXP changes; I really can't log in every hour to cycle short term DOFFing vs. the long term mishs...Daddy has to pay the rent and other bills to keep the lights and Internet on to log in to grind for Dil & DOFFs in the first place.
I think if more KDF players are needed, more of a gagh-on-a-stick bonus would be a good idea...of course, if you gave people a higher reward for power-levelling a Klingon, there'd be an outcry about that, but it might get you more data.
That, or auto-levelling up some existing Klingons to get them to end game content...but people have groused about the Minions of Gozer early on when Tribble testing first started.
Today is not a good day to die (as a Klingon on Tribble); tomorrow may be booked too.
