You say you have 15 members in your small fleet? 15 people will take 1.7 days to finish this project if you all maxed your refinement for 2 days.
Unless you can only play a total of 1.9 hours a week... then you could still make the Dil since it only takes about an hour to get 8k dil.
Whoa; slow down there, Turbo! My comment was sarcasm. And, I supose you'll have to pardon me - I thought we were joking back-and-forth, here. 'Wasn't trying to rumple your feathers, nor to take this onto the Vulcan "facts-n-figures" plane.

But, since we're here, the reason it took us so long to grind out the dilithium I mentioned is because we're all more-or-less casual players, and some of us are much more...casual...than others (meaning it's only a few of us really inputting anything). So, "days" and "hours," used in this manner, are relative terms.

Also, as an aside, taking time to read and/or post on a lunch break - which only takes a few minutes or so - is not the same as taking time to play, which, a) I can't and wouldn't do from my office at work and, b) would require more time than I actually have in a day at any point until after I get home.

At any rate, I thank you for your input on the dynamics and logistics regarding how we might go about doing the 'Special Project;' your suggested time frame would work if we got everyone doing it, I'm sure. But, my take-home point was that, however cool this particular aesthetic upgrade is, 200k is WAY too expensive given the outlandish input requirements for other projects - to obtain things that are actually practical in-game.
