Honestly? I'll play on day one if the UK connection is up to the task. The only coin-toss left for me is Romulan or Reman. I figure that, even with people grinding out the race or just buying it outright, more people are going to roll rommies so I like the idea of Reman just to be one of the few... even if it is only for a few days... otherwise it feels like a waste of RoMarks.

PS - I decided upon shorthand for the marks, figuring we'll have too many to type by next year.

Lol, love the short hand! Let's keep the Ro and O marks, but I like 'MinMarks better for the eventual dominion rep tree. On the topic of choosing a race, I am doing Reman for some of the same reasons. It will definitely be more unique than Romulans since those don't cost anything for silvers.

On my main KDF I got both Omega and Romulan Rep-tree finished at T5... On my second KDF toon however I got Rom up to T3 and Omega nearing T3.

I consider my Klingon character a secondary character since i really don't enjoy the klingon style that much, but i maxed out both Omega and romulan reputation on both.

Today, I tried out the Nequencia mission (because I saw you mentioned it) which isn't too hard to do without guides. TBH, though, I don't think I could rinse and repeat without getting sick of it quickly. I'd rather try out the different patrol missions, and some of them are kind of fun. The Gekli escort mission was cool because you had to protect and guide the Gekli's from poachers who probably wanted to kill them and make a soup out of them. The only thing I didn't like about it was the gekli's weren't unpredictable enough like they were in TNG. The elder gekli should have defended the flock with that shockwave we saw the gekli use in TNG. The AI wasn't particularly bright either. I sent my pets to gnaw at them from afar and the AI never fought back unless I came within their range.
That Gekli mission is actually kind of broken. There's a couple groups Hirogen escorts that will just sit there without firing back at all, and if you take them out then the poachers stop attacking the gekli and the hunting party doesn't show up. Plus it only counts for 15% of the sector patrol.

I used to do it with radiation scan mission, hitting all five systems on the route, and finish up with a quick stop at Acamar or Nequencia, but after trying to run my third character through the rep it all got old, so I just settled for the patrol stop that's quickest/easiest to finish.

Yep, the winter eppohs made it extremely easy to finish it. Really, all it took was a daily PvP race, that rewarded eppoh tags (12 for 1st, 6 for 2nd and 2 or 3? for 3rd). I was able to collect hundreds of eppoh tags which I could turn in for doff assignments that would yield 100~200 rom marks after 3 days. After a week I was able to chain multiple assignments and make those rom marks per day. I know people who still haven't run out of rom marks yet, or they're too lazy to convert it all into dilithium because it's so much.

Here's a guide I found on the forums.

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=469481

That should give you a head start. For now, all I can say is that you will need some good doffs, preferably rare or very rare if you can afford it. Biologists and research scientists seem to be the best choice as they have the best traits to get a critical results (there could be other better choices of doffs though).

Basically, all it takes is to go with a friend to New Romulus's eppoh fields, grab the daily eppoh tagging mission from one of the NPCs there and tag as many eppohs as possible. Do this mission with at least 1 teammate, otherwise you're wasting your time. You can ask in the zone chat for assistance but it's better to go in with a fleetmate and/or friend. Optimal amount to get is 30. The rest is to do a series of chain doffs assignments, which you want to crit as often as possible lol. So it helps to have good doffs with the right traits. At the end of 5 days or 7 days, you should have up to 400 rom marks. If you decide to this everyday, I think you can chain multiple assignments and make that amount each day after the first week.

I haven't done the eppoh tagging on new romulus though, I find it too tedious and boring. At the very least they should give us a way to transwarp to new romulus, that'll definitely motivate me to go there more often.

I get see that at times, where the group just sits there. I found out if you don't attack them, the rest of the party will show up. Take that out, then go out after the ones just sitting there. They don't attack and easy pickings. Then the mission is complete. I done it that way a plenty of times.

I have my KDF main at T5 Omega and about 10 days away from T5 Romulan which equals to getting to T5 Romulan the day after the LoR expansion goes live. If only I logged on that day I didn't last week. lol

I won't be grinding Tholian Rep, I find it too much of a chore for the passive traits and some items. If it was a faction or account grind through the tiers and you only have to do the projects for say leveling and item unlocks/purchases for individual characters I would grind up.
