I pretty much agree with Zerobang, too, though I've never minded the upgrinder, even as an avid DOffer. I didn't abuse it, but I did like it as an easy way to outfit the crew of my lesser-played Alt characters and/or for the ability to get "themed" crews (the All Vulcan Crew, All Gorn, or whatever). Now I won't proceed with that, as it's too expensive.

So I don't do upgrinds any more, and I don't do General Recruitments, either. I might do the former if I could know what I was getting as a result, even if just the category (Tactical, Medical, etc.), but getting Chefs and Bartenders is just way too frequent, and, as with 'Bang, another Purple Tellarite Bartender I do not need.

A lot of resources have been poured into these starbases, with nothing truly rewarding in return.
