On top of this, you have to first shell out 200k dilithium (T5 rep) just to unlock a mission that gives you 500 dilithium.

You would have to run that mission four hundred times just to break even. It would also cost you 20,000 omega marks to do so (@50 marks per assignment).

Coincidentally, earning 60 marks per elite STF would mean that in order to earn the required 20,000 omega marks you would need to run 330+ Elite STFs.

This also doesn't take into consideration the fact that now all of our STF gear will cost dilithium.

An additional 184,000 dilithium to gear a cruiser for space (approximately) in addition to the 200,000 dilithium for T5 rep.

In the current system we don't have to first pay for, and unlock the rewards behind a wall that absorbs in advance a massive chunk of the "reward".

As I stated above, it will take a very long time to just break even in the new system.
