I like that in STO crafting is called Research & Development. Unfortunately it's not much different to most MMO's and in the end it's just like baking a cake.

One thing that is missing in R&D is the ability to Upgrade items.

Upgrades can be to the Mark level or Rarity.
  • Upgrading would bind the item automatically.
  • The higher the Rarity/MK, the more % chance to break it (means it drops a level).
  • Allow breaking down of consoles to its basic parts (20% less than schematic list)
