I'm still waiting to see more of this reputation stuff on Tribble. From what I've seen so far however it's just a copy/paste job of the fleet grind. Given the 70+ pages of grief generated by the blog the other day, I'd really hope that Cryptic takes the hint and rethinks this entire reputation approach before pushing it to live.
I'm sorry, but the reputation system seems completely backwards to me, you've isolated the reputation system from the missions.
You should be earning xp FOR DOING THE MISSIONS and not forced to spend time and resources leveling it separately. The fleet system may work for DOFFs or the fleet missions but you're actually separating the game play from the rewards here... it doesn't make sense.
Why take marks, use them for projects, and use projects to make XP? It's still stupidly complicated compared to what it should be.
The only reason to structure the system this way is to slow the release of content over time. It works in large group projects, but in this case you're intentionally slowing individual player's progress, and I cant think of a single good reason to do that. If we want to grind STFs and Romulan space there should be no reason to prevent it.
The system works for hands off activities, but not something the player will be interacting with on a regular basis. Please, reconsider.

Is there going to be any way to respec the Reputation rewards choices? Powers, especially new powers, see a lot of revisions around here and I wouldn't be surprised if we'll eventually get stuck with powers that have changed and are no longer what we want.
Or is it going to be like the trait respec that everyone's been asking for since launch, but we've still failed to receive.
