This "Elite Special Task Force Completion" project should reward 8,000 Dilithium rather than 1,000. Right now I can run 2-5 Elite-STFs to hit the Dilithium cap (with drop turn-ins) on one character. I can only guess how long it will take me to reach the cap with the new system once it's finished.
As Tuvok said, "I am deeply concerned."

Cryptic forgot about when they took out extra drops after Marks of Valor were added, and people stopped playing. They added them back and people were happy.
Really, we are just running in circles for the past 3 years when it comes to the STFS. Original STFs had random drops in Version 1, then it went to Stores (Marks of Valor) then came full again in Season 5 with random drops, and with Season 7 it's back to Stores.
You know, I'm getting dizzy from Cryptic's lack of remembering the past.
960 Dil (what I got for an ESTF at 5:20 CDT today) seems tolerable, that's only 140 Dil less than usual. 5 Borg Neural Processors for 1K Dil also seems OK, I think that's close to my average with turning in random drops for Dil. The main thing is I wish there was more incentive on getting the optional. This will put a crunch on my EC making abilities with no loot on completion beyond the Processor given at the end, but I think that will be survivable(whereas I averaged ~90K EC in vendor value for each STF).
BTW, 75 Omega Marks for completing an ESTF during the Reputation Marks event.
