Medium Exterior missions are doable, but offer too little reward to complete a single project at T2+, unless you run them several times (not difficult except for the timer). Doing both DAILY Hard missions will not be enough to complete a single T4 project. Not to mention the grind for the equipment projects.
Do you do the missions of Defera? For Omega marks that is. The Omega mark rewards are just the same: 5 for Easy, 7 for Medium, and 10 for hard. So in comparison, the Nukara mark rewards are the same if not better than what's being offered on Defera (5 for Easy, 10 for Medium, and 15 for Hard). These are all very simple missions and don't take a lot of time at all.

But like I mentioned in a previous post, we need some way to earn lots of Nukara marks in one shot; similar to STFs, Tau Dewa Patrol, or Epohh Raising. The Nukara missions are good as a supplement to something bigger, but not as the main source for Nukara marks. Unless the required number of marks needed for each tier has been substantially reduced.

Does this mean they only affect beams, not cannons? Also still looking for a straight answer on embassy consoles.

I'm fine with Infusers not affecting projectiles as long as I can still run 2x infusers and 2x envelopes using 2x DHC and the reputation torpedoes.

Absolutely no one does Defera. Infected: The Conduit is right there.

I went there once, saw what the rewards are, laughed out loud, and never went back.

yep pretty much this, most do rom marks with epohhs, since 400 a pop each 3-4 days is good enough to level out the reputation system and you only use the other rewards if you run short, or want to stock up.

The adventure zones are pretty much dead for that reason, the payout is to low to even bother. If it would be comparable to either STFs/Fleet Actions or doff missions people would play it more. But so, its another wasted effort.

So... 30 minutes of effort = ~50 marks

That seems comparable or maybe even better than the payout for doing the Romulan Space Patrol daily....... and the Nukara easy and medium missions aren't daily.

I won't complain if the Devs increase the rewards, but from a game design point of view I'm not convinced it's required.

That's my 2 Zen at least.
Takes me maybe 20 minutes to complete the rom space daily, and its a lot less like work for double the rewards you list. Does not matter much that its daily. Just means I do it once per day, completing when the rep hour is running and go off and do other things. That one run gives me enough to do 1-2 days worth of projects in the low levels. Save them up and by the time the ~30 day timers have run out you have enough to max the system and have about 500 marks left over.

I don't bother with Defara, I did it once or twice for the FM and OM but found it was much faster to do just about anything else. I have not been there for months.

I agree that the Nukara 5-10-15 rep mark setup will take to long to get, especially when there are no Nukara PvE queue's similar to Mine Trap, The Vault, Azure Nebula Rescue and Borg STF's and not to mention that chalking up Nukara marks for higher tier 4 and 5 projects will take too long get and make it too repetitive to do. so i think the way to deal with this problem is to double the amount of marks or make Nukara PvE queue's that can drop similar amounts like its rommie/omega counterparts. and to put it as the Deferi would say it ''balanced the Nukara rep system''.

Just adding an addition opinion after actually going to Nukara. I do realize that it's still in the process of being worked on/etc. But the mark rewards on Nukara are too low as is. Before this update, Nukara Hards were awarding 60 Fleet Marks. Now they reward 15 Nukara Marks. I don't think the goal should be that Nukara Reputation is more valuable than Fleet Progression, so this is going to feel like a nerf.

Also, if you do remove Fleet Marks from Nukara, are you planning on increasing Fleet Mark rewards elsewhere? On holodeck, Nukara is a nice way to supplant your fleet mark generation.
