I've seen people using that Tier V ability in ISE and it didn't even manage to put a small dent into a nanite sphere. Nice lightshow but completely useless. If you don't plan on using Tier V Nukara gear, you can safely stop at Tier IV.
Haven't tried it yet, but the tier 5 ability should be useful for fighter spam. It could be considered as a free, but weaker version of the point defense system where we don't have to waste a console slot on it.
I too was disappointed that there was no "big reward" at the end of the Nukara Rep. No accolades associated with it, anywhere along the way, either.
I haven't done any space battles to try my new clickie power, but since I'm not skilled for Tets, I expect it'll be lackluster at best.
When XP earnings during a Double-XP Weekend still feel like I'm underperforming,
there's something terribly wrong with the reward system...

I was hoping to get the Nukara space set because of the visuals, and i took some comfort in knowing that if the previous 2 reputations where anything to go by, apon reaching tier five i would receive enough resources to offset or cover the cost of the Shield array. This is going to make things far more difficult, as 60k Dilithium ish was reasonable for XII Gear, but the fact that we don't get a reward atall, 90k is just too far.
Also, anybody who is there all ready, do XII space cost 1000 or 750 marks?

I was grinding to T5 with the hope I would get enough Dilithium and Marks to buy a console or ship piece. When my friend got there before me and told me this wasn't true. I was very disappointed and stopped bothering at T4.
Shame really because I'm a completionist. I like to have everything done to the best of my ability.

As i said earlier, a reward in marks and dilithium would have been nice.
I'm grinding to T5 for the XII ground and space set. Ground because i'd like to use something else than my trusty breen weapon and space because i have a nice idea for a Tholian Tetryon build on my Intrepid.
