# 1 What If - 11/1/2012
11-01-2012, 07:56 AM
I wanted to start a series of hypothetical question threads called "What If..." so this is the first to test the waters. I'll throw out the question and you guys just respond. I know answers will differ and people may find themselves polarized on this or that issue. Nevertheless, I encourage you to avoid attacking each other. Please keep things civil...

So here we go...

What if they were to decide to put crates of Dilithium Ore on the C-store?

I don't think they would, for reasons I explained in the other thread.

If they did? It would depend on the cost. The dilithium exchange would necessarily sink to the same place if it were lower, though if it were higher, nobody would buy it. It would basically cap the exchange at a certain amount.

The exchane is already capped. As I understand it, it cannot go any lower than 50RD per Zen and no higher than 500RD per Zen.

I figure if a price and quantity would make sense it would be 500 Zen for 25000 UNrefined Ore.

It gets a lot of Dilithium, but would take 4 days to be able to refine it all.

We know that the Dilithium requirements are increasing and the in-game output of ore is decreasing. Hypothetically speaking, they may be considering something like this as a means of making significant quantities of ore available if someone is willing to part with some cash to get it.

As long as it does not circumvent the daily refinement cap, I don't see it affecting the RD/Zen market too much, as this would allow those who hate the grind to obtain plenty of ore, but not flood the market with it, as they couldn't put any more on the exchange at any one time than they would if they did the grindfest. In theory...

Oh oh oh... I this a game... I can do this...

What if...

Someone came to their senses, and started making quality content, rather than grind...?

That would indeed be awesome, wouldn't it? I think we have to accept that it won't happen, though. More's the pitty.

That wouldn't make any sence.
They make zen purchasable with $. They make dilithium trade able for zen.
If you put it in the cstore the exchange will die within 24 hrs.

What if my Fed characters deceided that the Fed council and Star Fleet Command had been compromised by the Undine. The Criminal and un-honorable treatment of the Klingons and other Star Fleet officers such as Worf for example, caused the decision of my officers to join a Klingon House to fight the Undine and Borg (Common Enemies) Enemy of my Enemy, Will this ever be a possibility in the story line?

I think it's meant to be November 1st.
