So they should unbalance it in the opposite direction, making the game all about getting Dilithium instead of doing missions and exploration? That's how an MMO dies.

I basically see this as the beginning of the end for STO; I pity anyone who bought a lifetime membership. The Badges/Merits/Marks system was very well balanced; the Dilithium System is crap. It's made the game into a Dilithium Grind; all aspects of story-based gameplay have been made trivial.
