Was it ever worth doing STFs? It's not like the gear from STFs ever did anything except make STFs easier, so if you aren't doing the STFs for fun, then a cyclical gear system isn't going to do a lot for you.

You can easily get 5.5K per day with 1 - 1.5 hours of play time doing the Dilihtium Dailies in Eta Eridai, Breen Daillies, Strange New Wolrds (Exploration Daily) and the Mining daily. If you have more time, you can do the STFs or FAs.
No, this is not what was intended.

DStahl said himself that the purpose of Dilithium changes in Season 7 was so that everyone would refining more than the average of 3000 per day .

I don't know where you guys get this from but I have to spend 20 minutes per Character each day just to make Fleet Marks for the base, I need to add to that Romulan Marks, Dilithium and Omega marks as well as set up my doffs before I can actually do something out of routine... sorry but with 3 Characters and trying to support a fleet, it's just too much.

Lol @ 1.5 hours...

This is an absolute killer for the casual and weekend player as well, everything requires periodically logging in for people who work hard during the week this system is pointless. Then when they get free time on the weekends they have little or nothing to do beyond hollow STF's and scanning rocks.

The main problem I see is just that the times are too high for the things to complete, 40 hours, 2 days, too long. They need to cut the time in half, period. Also, the passives being permanent anger me to no end, that should not be that way.

A respec feature is supposedly in the works according to the devs. No doubt it'll be another 40 hour project that'll cost dilithium and will reset our reputation skill points.

If I had an extra 40~ish hours a week to dedicate to something; I would spend that time at a second job to earn money, not spend that time grinding for virtual items and paying for the privelige of doing so.

On the plus side, now I get to laugh loudly and shake my head derisively while saying "No".

Congratulations this is the one Thousandth Customer dissatisfied!

I just hate that it has discouraged gaming and playing STFs. In the past, I had need to play STFs for things, now, I play one or two STFs and I'm good for the next week or more of projects, so need to play anymore. How could anyone at Cryptic realize this would not happen? I end up spending less time in sto, cause I don't need to be there while projects complete in 2 days. It's pretty crazy.

I agree, it is. But who would start now? As better people than me have said, and I paraphrase: who wants to play missions with guys who are not kitted up? This is a killer for stf, the only ones who will be left are the hardcore (who mostly have all the good kit already) and the kiddies with unlimited access to daddies credit cards.

Lol the prestige premium end game levels for the entire game... and no one is playing them.

Just a month ago before S7 was announced there was a steady stream of games running on all major STF channels... now just assimilated tumbleweed roams the channels.
