I would like to see more ways to use Gold Pressed Latinum in game.
Ways to get more Latinum:
Ferengi Missions: These missions would be similar to exploration or patrol missions and given by Ferengi at Drozana station. They may be as simple as bring cargo from A to B, or the cargo may be nanites that take over the ship. No bonuses for problems encountered during transport
Some ideas for missions:
Retrieve cargo/ship from pirates (May contain nanites or actually be stolen from another group of pirates)
Find rare item (Salvage Borg debris field, excavate Vulcan ruins, negotiate with merchants)
Transport at risk person (perhaps an elderly Ferengi woman )
Setup a trade route
Sell Ferengi goods in exploration clusters (it's not a pyramid scheme!)
Drozana Space Race: In the area around Drozana station a race could be held between players. They would navigate between nav markers that could look like transwarp conduits. Along the way there would be obstacles like asteroids with holes in them and nebula that would slow you down. Careful power management and maneuvering are required to win. This would also make the outside of the station a social zone.
Drozana Boxing Match: To fit the with concept of a casino station players could fight each other without phasers. In front of a roaring crowd of aliens. No mind melds or nerve pinches allowed!
Ways to spend latinum:
Buy Ferengi Ship/ Shuttle: I imagine they would be somewhere in between an escort and a science vessel.
Hire Ferengi mercenaries: Both bridge officers and duty officers could be hired on. This would be an interesting way to acquire purple level officers at lower levels.
Ferengi uniforms could be purchased.
Various experimental items or devices that aren't strictly compliant with Starfleet/KDF regulations (Ferengi Tribbles, special consoles, Dominion weapons, etc.)
Of course they would be good for Klingons. That was part of my intention for basing out of Drozana and not the Ferengi homeworld (which is on the other side of the Federation from the Klingons). Since it based out of Drozana station even Romulans could use this when they become playable.
Ferengi whips- They could have special stun and knockdown properties.
Exotic foods for tribble breeding
You might even be able to subcontract your missions LOL
Star charts- lets you choose exploration missions instead of being given them randomly
Tattoo artist who gives out Ferengi tattoos as well as normal tattoos. Uses GPL so is different than tailor.
