Buy it from cryptic, fill in surveys which spam you with email or get it off the dilithium exchange.

you can buy it using real money (boo hiss) - at the charge zen link at the top of the forum - or when in game you can trade for it with Dilithium - next to the mini map is a down arrow, first option is the Dil exchange

To get bucket loads of dil, see here http://www.stowiki.org/Dilithium

Recently I bought 1600 Zen from the "broken" Dilithium Store. I'll use them to buy a B'Rel BoP when the 20% Discount will come up.

I lost track but around 150-180zen per day for a month or two so far not including prior rates........maybe in the neighborhood of 8-10kzen just from dilithium trades.

In total, I ended up with about a grand total of 2k Zen, gained in periodic transactions throughout December. I have yet to buy anymore this month, due to my dilithium having gone toward the Hyper Plasma Torpedo, the Omega Plasma Torpedo, and now going to an Elite Fleet Sniper Rifle. After I get that rifle, I do hope to start saving up dilithium again so I can be buying more Zen.

I completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE, Optionals included. And I soloed Winter Invasion.

I've exchanged dil for around 3000 Zen so far, got myself a free ship, but I don't think I will do much more of that as I've now got everything I want from the C-Store and need the dil for dil things more.

By Sunday I should be able to buy another 5k to bring my standing balance to about 11k.

So I say to all those with more money that sense or those who have too much money to care, keep pumping Zen into the economy.
You know I am one of thoe pumping Zen into the economy but with threads like this and the ones about the crashing Dil market. I think I am gonna refrian from a while since I have far more Zen(bought with real world cash) than I do Dil, since it seems I am upside down profit wise in this current marketplace.

I haven't really been farming dil (winter wonderland and doing Foundry missions mostly), so only about 1.5-2K, and that's pouring all my dil to the exchange. Along with $20 of zen, I got +100 doff slots for all my toons, and some keys to try some of the old boxes with the reruns, since I missed the Ferengi and Tholian ones.
