he whole imbalance is the same thing you have in the real world. The only difference is that there is almost equal opportunity. I know you are a life time member that goes as far back. that means you have more advantages when it comes down to things like legacy unlock and probably more characters then the f2p players.

The more character means more earning potential. I suggest using some real world strategies for finance. The whole don't put your eggs in one basket comes to mind. The starbase isn't all it is cracked up to be. The biggest advantage the starbase itself has is fleet ships and transwarp points. When you have lock box ships and c-store bundles like the Oddy and the Vesta then the fleet ships are less desirable. The Vest bundle alone is better then the fleets sci vessels. Aux DHC on an aux heavy ship is big. The Tuffli/Excelsior has the transwarp points.

If you want to get help on donating you need to inspire them and show them how it can help them personally. For example, if you want to show them a way to up their dps then take the fleet advance escort. you can put 5 [Console - Tactical - Plasma Infuser Mk XII] and 3 [Console - Science - Emitter Array Mk XI [-Th] [Pla]]. That sci console alone adds 9% plasma damage. that means you can have 30%+30%+30%+30%+30%+9%+9%+9% plasma damage.

That might convince a few that a tier 4 shipyard and a tier 2 embassy is worth it. then you can tell them about the Rare Romulan Tactical Bridge Officer Candidate that has Superior Covert Operative that can add 3.8% to your critical chance in space.

Dangling shinny objects in front of people work in most mmo's. Cryttic provided the dangling object. you just need to point your fleet.
