i suggest, that to take the grind out of the rep for consecutive toons, for each character you put through a rep system, the cost should be halved each time.
first toon= current/normal cost
second toon= half cost ie 50% of total/normal cost.
third= half that, ie 75% off the total cost.
if worried about abuse by people starting their 20th toon, grinding it to 50 & doing the rep for the dil payout, remove dil from the equation on rep systems in favor of being only the specific marks until the rep is complete.
at which point completing an stf or similar will have the option of dil or marks on completion, depending what people want.
as it turns out, an intrepid would lose a fight with a connie. and thats canon.
! the power of plot compels you.
