As one who crafts pretty much everything i need for my ship/crew, Dilithium is not my main concern. I'm interested to know where this part of the STO universe is headed. Can you address this in a future dev blog please? I've only heard rumors and gossip so i'd like to get at least a little fact.
Since the current version of crafting on Tribble is pretty similar to Holodeck and Blog #6 said changes were coming I would guess that we will likely need varying amounts of unrefined/refined dilithium to craft depending on quality. This is just my hunches but many so far have not been far off the mark.
