That's the problem with having 'permanent' unlocks that can't be changed -- if Cryptic decides to screw around with them, we're stuck with their decision and can only make informed selection at whatever state said powers/abilities are currently in, and have no control if they change at all (especially unfavorable change) in the future.

I'm all for reading the patch notes and dev discussions, but even the best of us can't accurately predict the future on what Cryptic will or will not do with permanent set-in-stone powers.
Standard respect tokens do reset the rep system IF you reset all your specs.

That's very informative. I was not aware of this.

So I guess the next question is -- are we going to see free respec tokens when they drastically alter gameplay mechanics, now that the reputation tier powers can be cleared with them?

Cryptic has at one point given free respec tokens when they signifigantly altered gameplay mechanics and systems regarding the skill tree. I don't see why reputation powers should be excluded.

I know it'd affect their profits by offering free respec tokens when they could just make Officer Joe buy a token if he's unhappy with the way they changed his reputation power. But it'd be the ethical thing to do.

A welcomed notice. I'd rather see a patch hit holodeck when it's ready instead of getting it out asap.

Could we get descriptions of what the newer things like "Reactive Shielding" correspond to(I.E. T4 Omega Reputation Passive), for those that haven't memorized these things yet?

Is "Quantum Singularity Manipulation" part of the Romulan Space weapon/console set? I've been neglecting that reputation side so far, and STOWiki doesn't know what it is yet.
