Regardless, I'm sure it'll be fine anyway.
Unless I missed something the exchange of C-Store points for dilithium hasn't started. That being the case the true economy testing hasn't even started. Of all the things they could be working on, spending time sifting through logs or potentionally writing a buggy script to sift through logs to see how much dilithium a beta character should have is pretty low on my priority list.

Edit: The exchange of C-Store to dilithium and back is really the only economy of any significance.

VA ships costs 2k CP(c-points). 2k CP costs $25. They dont want people going gold for 1 month, which only cost $15, to get the free VA token and then canceling, because that would give you a $10 cheaper way to get a VA ship when you got to that rank.

However, if someone is subscribed for 2 months that = $30, meaning Cryptic gets the $25 they would normally get for buying 2k CP and an extra $5. However, a person wouldnt actually have to wait 2 full months before they got their VA token, they would only need to wait until they were billed the 2nd time.

You are billed every 30 days, so that means after 31 days as a gold member you would qualify for your free VA token. How does that sound?
I like hte idea, could integrate it into the veteran rewards. Worst case throw it in for the 100 day vets.
Not as fast as what your saying since it would take around 4 months for new people, but it would be easier to add to the system if they aren't willing to have a sub 100 day vet reward, an alternative closer to your suggestion would be a 32 to 50 day Veteran reward that would insure people have to pay for 2 months to get a VA token.

And that's fair enough. Yes, it's a test server, but it's also (at least, I think so), a good idea to nip this in the bud now, and to see what caused the problem, so the same thing doesn't happen on holodeck.

Is it vitally important? No, but after promising that they would lower the prices (and they did, all credit to them), they're not going to be able to get feedback on them when nobody can afford anything yet lol.

And in all honesty, i spent time and effort earning it, and they were good enough to decide that they should rectify the situation. I'm not going to complain about it, am i.

And i don't believe it's the only one of significance. A very significant, if not the most significant, sure, but not the sole one, imo.

I'm just thrilled to see how the problem that the Galaxy X has two clickables instead of one, like all the other VA ships, will be resolved. Will she get 2 new console slots now?

Realized I'm not sure if I understood this. Are humans becoming MORE or LESS common? Decreased rarity would imply more humans, but there's already an immense disparity between humans and Vulcans, let alone rarer Fed races, let alone the really rare races.

It is more humans, from what I can tell.

How about a choice between dilithium and a free (reduced) ship token when we level up?
