True. For a fleet this could be exploited just like you said. What they need to do is allow fleet/embassy projects to be cancelled ONLY if not a single thing has been contributed yet. Even if 1 expertise or 1 dilithium is contributed it can't be cancelled. This will avoid exploitation and avoid fleet members getting mad having a project cancelled after they contributed a fair amount to it. For rep systems, that's a whole 'nother story. You don't gain anything for contributing (until the project is finished completely), and if you cancel a project you lose anything you added and it only affects you and you alone.
