I have three letters that express my distaste with what I quoted from your statement.
Also, I have noticed something. Everything that they gave us with S7, you have just bashed outright. What's your problem? We get a free ship that's actually quite powerful and performs well, and all you have to say is that it's trash. You refuse to even acknowledge any of it's strengths, only going after it's weaknesses. They give us a guaranteed way of getting STF items (albeit a little more costly), and all you do is attack it. Major issues here.
I think season 7 was pretty fun even though Im finished now. Tier 5 on both and I have purchased everything from both store's. I find it was over too fast. now I have nothing to do. The Romulan and Reman sets are excatly the same, no need to buy both. But on the orginal posters topic, I agree. I leveled up 2 other toons to 50 without doing one story mission. There was no need. Doffing and sector patrols and red alerts and I was there in a week. No incentive to replay the missions.
I almost think they should throw us a bone, and at the end of assimilation give us a small-ish lower tier 5 borg or undine ship (randomly, or tie it into the rep store. Something like a probe. A generic borg or undine ship that would be better for the role player types.

I came to STO from Star Wars the old republic and im considering going back over there now that they are F2P. I enjoy story and combat and it seems that the story episodes here are on the boring side, they are not adding anything new and they are taking rewards away and placing them into this reputation system that already sucks as it is..
If they reverted back to season 6 I may consider staying, but as long as this reputation system lives , im done.. I dont need any more time/resource gates...thanks

As bad as the reputation system is, it's heluva lot better than the old ways.
Undine featured episodes with an anti-psychic ground set? Sounds like it's time to wrap up the Undine arc once and for all (either make them friends or tell them to f-off to make way for the Iconians).
Drink one shot for ever time someone complains about realism in Star Trek.
Drink two shots if they don't know what "fiction" is.
Now that the Assimilated Module has been removed from the mission rewards, I no longer see the need to play through any of the storyline missions once I hit level 50.
I would like at least some incentive to play the final missions, other than regular old items I could just get off the exchange. What I would really like to see is the mk XI Borg set added to the mission rewards for the Undine Series. Either that or some new unique items that can only be obtained from those missions. Even a liberated Borg boff would be better than nothing (yes, I know you can get one through the STF achievement but I would rather get it this way so the final missions at least have some unique reward).
Even a little dilithium would give me a reason to play the final missions. As it stands now, the end missions are just a waste of time. Why bother with them now?
The AM is still a reward for the first undine mission on rerun. Got it with my kingon toon that way. Haven't tested, but probably 1 time only.
