Only 2 sub-tracks, 3 tiers, and lower XP costs per tier. Loose extrapolation from what I saw on tribble and stowiki, a maxed-out embassy looks like a slightly larger investment equivalent than a tier 2 starbase, but less than tier 3.
I really appreciate that the hint from Ask Cryptic held true, that embassies and other holdings would be smaller side-projects and the Starbase would still be the big project for fleets. My biggest fear for S7 was that our already crushing starbase grind would be joined by an equally steep embassy grind, and that when S8 hit we'd still be buried under tier 3 or 4 of them both only to add something else similarly demanding.
