Making STF gear tradable doesn't fix the problem of too low STF drop rates. Since they'd still be too low, and the STF gear still exceedingly rare, they would command prices nobody could realistically pay (i.e. the Jem'Hadar ship. Only a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of the playerbase could buy them on the exchange). It also doesn't solve the problem of getting Mk XII sets either since you can't buy them with EDC. Mk XII elite STF sets would easily end up being even more expensive than the Jem'Hadar ships, since anyone could have gotten a Jem'Hadar bug if they poured enough money into red boxes. You can't buy the STF elite gear, you have to grind for it and get lucky.

What I would like to see is "bind on equip" items become bound to an account, and not a character. If I want to gear up an alt with old stuff from my main char, I should be able to do that, not go back out and grind it all again or buy new off the exchange.
