Its always a fight between "Dilithium is too expensive!" and "Zen is too expensive!" However, I think its also there to reduce the attractiveness of RMT farmers from selling their services. Additionally, its probably there simply to slow us down - how much is Dilithium used for end-game equipment and all that? Nothing like having multiple, varied reasons for something...
