Mission rewards from the current Featured episodes will all have gone and be shifted into a reputation system so anything of blue quality or higher will have to be bought with dilithium, as per the current Reman shield.
I say no to this. I do not want to see all rewards folded into the Reputation system. It's not practical anyway since the Reputation system is only open to players at level 50+, and there are many missions and FE's that are available to lower-level characters.
