3 Contraband is needed for the Turn In Contraband mission and returns 2000 Dilithium.

Get the right timing with that mission, it runs for 2 hours and has no CD, so maybe the best would be to use one or more alt or whatever who stands in front off the security officer and just log in to accept (don't worry if it's greyed out, since todays patch you have not only to complete the mission in order to get it again, you must acknowledge report, too). And you need one security officer, don't worry if lots of bad traits show up, as far as I found out yet this mission can't fail with a security officer on it, otherwise a blue or better doff of whatever will do the job at 100% chance, too.

Send some DOFFs, and let her discharge them for the dilithium. (Should actually only take one to get 75.)

(thanks for the other suggestions, too!)
It is a doff assignment that takes 2 hours to complete. It requires 3 Contraband, and any officer, although a security officer would make chance of success 100% I think. The contact for this assignment is located at the center of ESD (or great hall in First City for KDF). You get 2000 dilithium each time, and can be repeated every 2 hours so long as you have 3 contraband.

It's possible to tip her an amount of Dilithium that I can enter myself? I thought it was just 10, 20 or 50 [or whatever the numbers were].

It's 25, 50, or 100. The downside is that you can only tip the same author once a day.

Does anyone know of a way where I can put Dilithium or Cryptic Points on the Dilithium Exchange and assure that she's the one who gets it?

Thanks!
I simply put an offer on the exchange to sell dilithium for C-points, usually a lower offer than the ones listed. Once the offer is placed, hit "cancel offer" and the dilithium will be listed in the Dil. exchange and you can switch toons and withdraw from there. I may have made it sound more complicated than it is, hope it helps. If ur transferring to a toon not on ur account this won't work.

Ohh.... So I can't enter my own amount....

That's disappointing.

I'll have to tell her to just go with the "Sell Contraband at Spacedock" idea. That seems to be the best decision.

She was able to get the points she needed by doing a few of the Contraband missions and selling a few of her Duty Officers.

Thanks for all your help, everybody! She and I really appreicate it!
