Not sure how up to date it is since I haven't checked it since before season 5 hit....


EDIT: Just tried it out and it's completely up to date with the new economy so that's full of awesome.

That's just a high level Bat'leth that does extra damage against Borg enemies. Alot of high end gear is available with a <Borg> variant. They typically do less damage then their dmgx2 purple counterparts, but are great to use in the Borg focused Elite STFs.

With the exception of Dilithium Vendors, all 'even' Mark equipment were removed from the Vendors store at the start of Season 5...

So that there's a reason for you to actually go out and try and get loot drops and mission rewards, or do crafting instead of just buying all the gear you'll need for each level as soon as you hit the next rank?

Alternately, you could also just buy even mark items on the Exchange.

This was implemented as part of the 'Dilithium' economy... Highest level (even Mark) equipment is now associated with Dilithium expenditure, either through Dilithium Vendors, or by Crafting... The only exceptions are item drops, which can be sold on the Exchange...

And to some extent, they do have a point... It is possible to play the game with only odd-mark equipment... If you want the higher quality equipment, then you're going to have to grind for it...
