I particularly like the idea of seeing a C-Store giftcard! I could see GameStop employees having to deal with confused mom's this december... "He said he wanted Sea Points or something... from... oh what was the name... Mysterious games? Something like that. Its for that Star Wars thing he's always playing, with that George Takai fellow in it. Did you know he was GAY? I just read that!"
Somehow I worry that it might be trouble with gold farmers though.
Why exactly? It's not as if energy credit as really worth much in game. Aside from early and mid levels, you really don't need credits other than purchasing new ships upon rank-up and maybe a few items off the exchange if you don't feel like doing exploration / pvp / etc missions for marks & badges. I don't really see C-Store points as being able to be robbed from people by a traditional gold farmer, unless a gold farmer somehow tricks a player into sending them the 'gift' of c-store points, in which case it goes beyond your usual link / email / website scam that most fall into.
