You may remember me for my thread that revealed the dilithium currency conversion formula when Season 5 launched last year. This year we have the Season 7 STF currency conversion in which all Encrypted Data Chips, salvage, tech, and requisitions will be converted to a crate containing various amounts of Omega Marks, Borg Neural Processors, and dilithium ore.
The STF currencies have been converted by assigning them a certain point value:
EDC = 1 point
Rare Borg Salvage = 1 point
Prototype Borg Salvage = 1 point
Common Borg Tech = 2 points
Rare Borg Tech = 4 points
Prototype Borg Tech = 8 points
The total you have is added up and placed in a bin, for various sizes.
Bin 1 (1-4 Points) : 250 OM / 2 BNP
Bin 2 (5-9 Points) : 500 OM / 4 BNP
Bin 3 (10-19 Points) : 1000 OM / 6 BNP
Bin 4 (20-79 Points) : 1500 OM / 8 BNP / 1000 dilithium ore
Bin 5 (80-139 Points) : 2000 OM / 10 BNP / 2000 dilithium ore
Bin 6 (140-199 Points) : 2500 OM / 12 BNP / 3000 dilithium ore
Bin 7 (200-399 Points) : 3000 OM / 14 BNP / 4000 dilithium ore
Bin 8 (400-599 Points) : 3500 OM / 16 BNP / 8000 dilithium ore
Bin 9 (600-799 Points) : 4000 OM / 18 BNP / 16000 dilithium ore
Bin 10 (800-999 Points) : 4500 OM / 20 BNP / 24000 dilithium ore
Bin 11 (1000 & Up Points) : 5000 OM / 22 BNP / 32000 dilithium ore
These will be placed in an "Omega Conversion Crate" that are unlocked at Tier 3 of the Omega Reputation System.
Uncovering this formula took a lot of data mining and I'd like to thank everyone who helped contribute. Given these values, I can understand why Cryptic would not want to release these formulas, but just like with the dilithium conversion, now everyone has access to the information.
Yes, extremely well done. This is why I heart you.
I wish they'd just published the formula instead of playing these "oh it depends" games with us. This is really simple, why obfuscate?

For the most part we are posting this blog to give you enough time to make that call for yourself.
What lies this guy tells, huh? Don't trust a word from him, ever. This is an outright and blatant misleading statement delivered by the EP. Really sad.
Shout out to the developers who are logging in and actually trying to communicate with us.

It's too bad that you're a little late in revealing this information to us, its a great source but revealed way too late. If it was posted a day earlier at a earlier time then we could have thoroughly digest all this juicy info.
Great effort though - and for those that have read this thread during the time it was made, I would digest all the info and act accordingly.
