What's your fleet activity Level now as opposed to say at the beginning of Dec? I hear a lot of people who are done with the winter stuff saying they are going on hiatus until the 3rd year anniversary event.
Since Season 7, progression has been incredibly slow due to the multiple grindings. My fleets progressed 1 Starbase Project and finally unlocked Embassy Diplomacy Level 1 since Season 7 began. While Fleet Projects are more helpful with the DOFF costs, the Dilithium costs of the Embassy System is not helpful at all.
This Starbase system is not accomodating at all for small fleets, and people have moved on to larger fleets or spending large sums to buy equipment from large fleets, because it will literally take years to get to unlock the upper Starbase system. So hopefully Cryptic is working on ways to make the system more friendly for small fleets.

My fleet seems to be doing well, but we've had a large drop off in dilithium contributions since the winter event started. I'm guessing that my fleet mates are grinding in the event, for the breen ship, and will come back afterwards. I only hung around the event long enough to help do the winter wonderland special project for the starbase. Now that we have that complete I'm off to grind for an Armitage.
Fleet is fairly active. Frankly, as active as it has been since they launched starbases. But starbase progression has slowed to a crawl as everyone is dumping all their resources into the reputation systems. Until people cap both of those out at tier 5, I really don't expect it to fully pick back up again.
Fed side projects are moving along just fine for my fleet.
But KDF side has stalled for a few weeks when the Starbase Tier 4 upgrade was slotted, we have fewer KDF players + characters so it took a while to get the Fleetmarks together, with the Rep System + Winter Event nobody had time to really grind any FM either, with the Foundry Clickies gone there wasn't even the passive 50 FM every day... at best i was able to contribute 10 FM or so from running Minetrap and petting that FM Tribble.
Anyway we got it started after what felt like an eternity where KDF needed nothing but Fleetmarks and now that both Winter Event and Rep System are coming to their End the KDF Fleetbase projects should move faster again.
