Well, in exchange for your 150 lobi. :p

Don't get me wrong, I think the idea is good: if they paid Lobi for the set, they should get a bit of a bonus for having it. I'm not sure 150 Tholian Marks is exactly what it should be worth, though.

I do see the two sides to it: one, you don't want a lot of marks to be available right away, because then people with the set will just blow through the rep without any effort. On the other hand, you want to give them some reward.

I would probably enhance the upgrade somehow, though I'm not sure exactly how. Have the Rep project change the 'old' gear into "Prototype" Mk XII Crystalline Shell stuff with a different color (but the same stats)? Or give say 5,000 dilithium ore per piece plus the 50 marks?

I don't know. I can understand people feeling that 50 marks per piece is a bit stingy, though.
