Reduced duration timers on all of the above types of projects from 40 hours to 2 minutes.
Well that's just a tiny reduction...

No kidding... 2 minutes is even too long. it should be no different than going to a vendor to buy level 50 gear, only to find out that you are level 49 and do not qualify. However, when you are level 50, you can purchase it immediately. Since the gear/consumables etc.. are taking up reputation advancement and one of the couple slots available, the unlock time should be immediate, but I am happy with 2 minutes even though you shouldn't have to pay dilithium to unlock the store only to turn around and pay dilithium to buy the item. Its like you are being double taxed.
Seriously, if 2 minutes is 2 minutes too many, you're nitpicking.
I'll take 2 minutes over 40 HOURS any day of the week.
Let me ask you...what does 4 minutes of your time really mean in STO (assuming you can fill the projects immediately) compared to 3 days and 8 hours of not having full gear? (Assuming you have all the inputs for the 3 pieces of gear you're wanting immediately and re-slot the minute you grab the first 2 from completion).
If it's that pressing a need to have another few minutes, I'd ask you to re-consider your time in STO and away from the real world.
