You are right they are horribly overpriced and this is why:

Cryptic set the prices using the current dilithium store as a precedent. However this store was always so massivly overpriced that no one EVER used it to buy weapons, making it a really BAD precedent.

They are unlikely to care though. They want it to take you forever to grind a full set of weapons. What confuses me is this makes sense if we all paid a subscription but making people play longer (read: grind more) doesn't really make sense in a F2P model. Especially when the lack of affordable, quality items in the z-store destroys the concept of impulse buying.
