The 500 day reward ought to be one of several small things....
a] One opposing faction costume piece [Klingon sashes would look pretty bad-ass on a Terran Empire costurmes...]
b] Opposing faction pet [btw, where are the dogs /cats for the humans in StarFleet?]
c] A trophy for your ship's lounge /Captain's Office
d] A purple level tribble usable by all races /factions
e] Ok, this is my favorite, so I'm biased... EARLY ACCESS TO ROMULAN FACTION CONTENT! [I can dream, can't I? ]
All the other 'been-there-done-that' rewards have had comparatively small in-game effects, and I think this should too.
What about a free ability to improve a Trait... (e.g. from Basic -> Standard or Standard -> Superior) as a part of the implementation of Trait 'Respec' (both BO and Player Character)... We already get a free 'Skill Respec' as a part of Veterens advancement... As it is right now, my female 'Liberated Borg' Enginneer is a better 'Borg' then my 'Liberated Borg' player character...
While I would love cstore perks, I'm not holding my breath on that.
Some of my ideas:
- maybe something like a permanent 5-10% discount for all cstore items would be feasible. Perhaps a scaling discount for buying AP - i.e. the more you buy, the more you save. (I know, I can hear the complaining from the non-vets already... it's a pipe dream)
- 1 free trait respec for your captains
- free ship slot
- free BOFF slot
- the requisite free respec
- access to the captain's table from any sector block!
