The various Tholian invasion missions on Nukara are intended to be available all the time so that you don't have to wait for an hourly event to access this content. (we want to make the Borg Defera Missions function similarly in the future as well).
This set of missions was not originally intended to offer any Fleet Marks at all as it more about setting up the introduction of the Tholians than it was about Fleet Starbases or Fleet Actions. Plus remember, that not all players are in a Fleet. The reward struction in this Zone reflects the fact that Fleet Marks are not the focus. Any player (fleeted or not) can earn cool new Tholian rewards by playing missions in this zone.
However, after internal discussions we agreed that all of the new missions being released in Season 6 should offer Fleet Marks in some way to make it useful for max level Fleet Members. All the missions reward Fleet Marks in various increments, with the only difference in the Nukara Zone being that we wanted these missions to be constantly replayable and not an easy source of FMs.
To facilitate this, we are creating a single "Fleet Hour" event which (last I checked) will be running multiple times per day. During those hours, some events will be offering additional Fleet Marks, and some missions like the ones on Nukara will offer Fleet Marks where they previously did not.
As with anything, we reserve the right to change this in the future, but that is the plan right now.
