Because?! Do you even have to ask? The starbase didn't have a fish tank! How on Earth did we live without a fish tank?
(cookie if you knew what I'm talking about)
200k dilithium? Yeah no. Even for a 2:1 fleet conversion THIS WOULD NOT BE WORTH IT ON EITHER SIDE!
With everything that's coming the potential for Dilithium drying up faster than water in a desert (which i'll remind you isnt the easiest thing to cap out in most cases if you're not a chain alting madman) is about to become even worse. 200k dilithium? With the season 7 changes on the horizion? If i play this game past season 7 not only is it a NO its a HELL NO.
Take a look at the season 7 changes on tribble man and tell me it is worth it. PLEASE tell me its worth it i'd love to be able to call you a blind idiot! ;P
Well, to be fair, 200K isn't that much for a mid-sized fleet. 25 people depositing one day's dilithium grind can cover it, and fleets have room for 500. For smaller fleets, and solo fleets, the cost to gain ratio is more outlandish, yes.
Still, with apparently dilithium influx being cut (the Tribble STFs award no dilithium) and more sinks for the stuff being added (doff recruiting assignments cost dilithium on Tribble, as does merging doffs, and it's entirely probably they'll expect you to sink it into their reputation system as well) the average fleet member's willingness to contribute dilithium (or for that matter, doffs) is going go the way of the Romulans. Afterall, he's now getting less than before, and he needs more than before.
Maybe the devs secretly want to go transfer to the Neverwinter team, and are purposely trying to tank the game so the STO team can be disbanded.
Ok the fish tank looks cool but it needs more fish in it and more colorfull exotic fish, we have way more colorfull and exotic fish here on earth so i could only imagin what you could find in the star trek universe.
Yea put a baby Xindi-Aquatic in there or something realy neat and colorfull, this was something that you could had let ur imagination run wild and it was just mmmeeee a low level screen saver, and to be honest for 200 K in dilithium it should had been more exciting.
