That was added only after requests; first implementation of the zone only had a Singularity Core as a reward. And as of yesterday, the Replay reward for that mission didn't offer one.

As opposed to the Klingons and Romulans, who can get them while gaining levels through missions.

I'd wait till level 50 and start crafting them, like I usually do with equipment? My KDF Officer ran around with crap equipment until level 50, at which point I went to the exchange and went on a shopping spree of sorts to deck the new ship out.

But I suppose this doesn't work for most people...

Or they could do like Kit Rewards : you get a box that unpacks in one of your profession's kit. They could do the same with Warp Cores and reward a Faction-specific Warp Core, Federation and KDF Captains would get M/AM Warp Cores, while Romulan Captains would get Singularity Warp Cores.

Guess it's too bad WC's aren't craft able then isn't it?

Not to mention crafting anything above Mk7 costs dil (in the form of unreplicatables).

That's my main problem with it too.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

Wait... what? They aren't craftable?

Well, Mk X White it is. The @#*& do I care at that point... the rest of my equipment is awesome, I'll deal.

Nope, and it seems that only Romulans get Duty Officer assignments to create them.

So far, the only known sources for M/AM warp cores are the first-time completion reward for one of the Nimbus missions, some of the new Klingon missions, the Dilithium store, and random drops (although the drop rate seems to be much worse than the other major components giving a lie to the dev statement that a desirable warp core should be no harder to attain than desirable shield arrays etc).
