We arent playing F:NV and we are not independent contractors either.
Reputation seems to be part of a rewards system, no reward system makes you lose points outside when said points are used and in STO the only system they seem to be using is a tiered system, you gain points to reach a tier to gain rewards, the Fleet Mark system is a currency system and its the only one were your idea would kinda work.
Reason is Starfleet and KDF Officers are supposed to follow orders, if you disobey or act in a way that is against the spirit of the orders given you be relieved of command or in the KDF fashion being relieved of command by means of a bladed instrument by one of your officers.
A dynamic system does not work too well in STO due to the very nature of WHO you are supposed to be.
