Reputation "grind" would be alot smoother for making new characters, if it were Account Based, instead of Character Based.

There needs to be a way to make them more friendly to people who run more than one or two characters even having them faction based would be better than the way it is now.
The way it is now makes sense, in that, it's that particular Captain's Reputation that s/he's earned with that given group. But the thought of grinding through all of that, over and over again with each new character, is quite daunting and probably turns many off to creating multiple characters. I agree that it would be better to have the Reputation System unlock the options within the Faction, at least. That way, at most, you'd only have to grind the Reputation System three times.
