Man. That would SUCK.
This is exactly what happens.

Rewards are given based on a single metric; Damage Done.

This means that Cruiser Tanks and Support Craft recieve nothing for their contribution to the encounter if they stay within their intended roles. This is why I can take my intrepid into any given lower level Fleet Action, hover around several other ships whilst healing and buffing them, and not even place on the contribution board.

Mechanic that needs to be fixed, asap.

See? Didn't even consider it as I'm always DPS. If you are going to rate something by score, but have different vessel, than that score needs to have other factors than simple damage. Maybe one for each type - a seperate loot table and score for Escort, Science and Cruiser would make sense.

it's pretty bad that I was able to unlock the last fleet action on the 4th day of my playing this game.

/sigh.

You shouldn't be needing to make posts like this. It's just bad game/level design.
