Starbase Upgrade Projects
Tier 1: 64,800 dilithium (@ 157 dil per zen = 413 zen = $4.13)
Tier 2: 216,000 dilithium (@ 157 dil per zen = 1376 zen = $13.76)
Tier 3: 648,000 dilithium (@ 157 dil per zen = 4128 zen = $41.28)
Tier 4: 1,900,000 dilithium (@ 157 dil per zen = 12102 zen = $121.02)
Tier 5: First Born (5.5M+?, or $350+?)

Dan Stahl has said most recently in the October Ask Cryptic about reducing costs at Tier 4 and 5. I strongly suggest this be done sooner rather than later.

Congrats to those who have managed this feat, which will be out of reach for all small and medium sized fleets.
you are missing all the upgrade costs of each section - I'm doing Tier 3 now:

324,000 dilth x3 = 972,000 + upgrade 648,000 = 1,620,000 dith for tier 3

if Tier 4 sections are half the upgrade cost then tier 4 total dilth cost is:

850,000 x 3 = 2,750,000 + 1,900,000 for a whopping total dith cost of upgrade at 4,650,000 dilth!!! or about 30,000zen

Tier 5 - 12,000,000+ dilth

this is why you will be able to count the T5 starbases on your 2 hands
