For consistency's sake, have it so that scanning, Fed side, provides currency to purchase anomalies rather than anomalies themselves.
To reinforce the system, have a place unlocked through the currency for each side. For Klingons, it's Sto-Vo-Kor. For Romulans, it's the Tal Shiar facillity where the Narada was built, for Federation, it's the Daystrom Institute. The nature of the clubhouse reflects the system. For the Klingons, their gathering system is spiritual so their clubhouse is spiritual. For Federation, their gathering system is scientific so their clubhouse is scientific.
The new location can be both a crafting "clubhouse" and a store for distinctive BOs, costumes and ships with VERY high energy sinks.
