I have in my inventory :
- 2 rare borg salvage
- 3 prototype shield tech
- 1 armor shield tech
- 1 prototype PSG
- 1 rare engine tech
- 1 rare deflector tech
- 1 very rare deflector tech
- 17 prototype borg salvage
- 60 Encrypted datachips
- 3 reman datalogs (nice mission but the reward isn't worth the time it takes)
- 206 lobi crystals.

- 20M energy credits
- 150k dilithium
- 5000 GPL

Soon, i'll have even more :
- Fleetmarks
- Fleet credits

I'll have 16 different currencies ! Fortunately, with the euros I give each month to the studio, Cryptic can buy more and more hard drives to store more and more data coming from bad design choices.

Would be nice not to have this in my regular inventory though, it's taking space I'd like to use for other stuff - let's say, the funny stuff.

If you guys have a currency I don't have yet, let me know, I'm collecting this.

Considering you use them to buy access to doff missions, starbase upgrades, and Boff upgrades. All trade commodities, turret platforms, doffs, expertise, Data samples, food, and drinks are also all currencies. Oh and I forgot about fighters and batteries.

And it is just going to get worse. They don't seem to learn from their mistakes. They should have left it with EDC, dilithium and GPL.

If you go that far, you may as well go all the way. Everything in your inventory is a currency. Whether it is a currency to buy something from a store, unlock a feature on the starbase, 'buy' health, shields, damage, accuracy, etc.

But i do agree, the number of different currency's are getting up there. I can see EC, RDil, GPL, Zen, Lobi, EDC's, Fleet Marks/Credits, and maybe a single end game currency to replace prototype/tech/salvage

Yes, after the whole hoopla about getting rid of marks and emblems and etc. They do seem to have really gone nuts on currency again.

I'd be all for getting rid of the Borg Salvage and Tech pieces. Just go with the EDCs for all the STF gear. Never found it fair that I always seem to have to grind out 120 EDC for a set & then to see some lucky slob say "I just got 2 Prototype __ Tech drops in a row!" in chat.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

The over abundance of currency is already being discussed here.

all the different currencies after the simplification are probably just PWE's doing. it wouldn't surprise me

so at the very least, saying they don't learn is a bit too soon
