So omega marks can be converted to dilithium just as EDC's could? If so, what's the conversion rate for each loot type? Will prototype salvage become elite omega marks? Will dilithium become more costly?

There doesn't seem to be any random factor in the amount of marks earned, unlike the random drop of EDC's, tech, and salvage (via random drop, optional loot, and stf completion loot). It was possible to earn a couple prototype salvage plus a prototype tech during an elite STF... that's quite a bit of dilithium (~2k) if just the prototype tech is cashed in. I assume this isn't going to be possible with the new changes since it's a strict amount of marks per mission.

I have a feeling these changes will make the dilithium exchange prices soar very high. Might be better to cash in all STF loot now on the main server and grind, grind, grind until this goes live. Then again, I could be wrong since I haven't had a chance to try it on Tribble...
