wait for it, is my advice. you'll need a lot of marks and dilithium anyway
I also suggest waiting to buy most items from the Rep System till you've maxed it out.
During my 1st run through the Romulan Rep system I made the mistake of buying the Rare Scorpion Fighters, the Very Rare Scorpion Fighters and then the Ultra Rare Scorpion Fighters and ended up wasting a ton of resources on things that I only ended up using for a day or so.
If you're hurting for gear I'd recommend going to the exchange and using EC to get the best the you can afford there and save all your Dilithium and marks till you can get the very best that the Rep systems have to offer.
I waited on my fed character. I did not wait on my kdf character for Honor guard gun. The cutting beam & console is already mk XII.
Other wise I would advice you to wait if you think it is worth the wait. You might like a tribble account too. Either way it's your choice & your call. Just remember some items you can only have 1 of even if it will let you make more then 1 & as your rep system progresses your gears will get better, even with the loot you get from defera hards the loot boxes will yield better gears as you progress.
The best gears I have found are at my fleet starbase for fleet credits & dilithium or on the exchange for a few million ec (my Mk XII rare disruptor tactical consoles).
Be sure to have fun, it is only a game.
My two cent's take em or leave em......

Thanks for everyone's advice - I think I will hold off on the XII sets but will get the assimilated console set (since they are always XII) and the Scorpion since I fly a carrier (unless it's better to get a purple Toduj.
