now I guarentee I would get some proto or rare salvage which would increase that number to above 35,000

So what is the purpose of you adding those up - they are totally misleading. There are no times specified. So you would have to add up the time required for each thing you listed total to compare it to something else.

So I could do 3 STF elite per hour on avg or about 7 hours
Sur, but if one only plays four or five STFs, and gets no salvage/tech drops, then those items don't matter, do they?

And that was pretty regular for me. I work some fifty hours a week. I get home, or I have a day off, often times I'm only playing STO for a couple of hours. Plus, I'm here more for RP than for blowing stuff up (as much fun as it is).

So I think the summary is fairly right on in not considering EDCs/Salvage/Tech. You couldn't get Dilithium from EDCs without doing 10 STFs, which might take me three or four days, and even after doing 10 STFs, I might not get a single piece of Salvage/Tech.
