if Tier 4 sections are half the upgrade cost then tier 4 total dilth cost is:

850,000 x 3 = 2,750,000 + 1,900,000 for a whopping total dith cost of upgrade at 4,650,000 dilth!!! or about 30,000zen

Tier 5 - 12,000,000+ dilth

this is why you will be able to count the T5 starbases on your 2 hands
Yes, my post was only concerned with starbase upgrade costs.
To complete the starbase + shipyard/fabricator/comm array (and adding transwarp conduit when known):

Tier 1: 64,800 + 3*32,400 + 15,750 = 177,750 dilithium
Tier 2: 216,000 + 3*108,000 + 162,000 = 702,000 dilithium
Tier 3: 648,000 + 3*324,000 + ??? = 1,620,000 dilithium + transwarp 3
Tier 4: 1,900,000 + 3*900,000 + ??? = 4,600,000 dilithium + transwarp 4
Tier 5: Unknown

Very conservative dilithium estimate would be 13.8 million dilithium assuming transwarp costs the same as other upgrades (it cost much more at Tier 2) and that Tier 5 is identical cost to Tier 4 (signs point to ~3 times the cost which would literally double the amount of dilithium needed to around 30 million dilithium). That's a current market value of just under $2000 and this does not include fleet marks, duty officers, commodities, or items that have an energy credit component. I sincerely hope that Cryptic won't backtrack from saying that the Romulan Embassy would be substantially cheaper than the starbase.
