Why so much? They are 1m fed side, 4.5m KDF side - and the Elachi proc is essentially worthless. You can get these from starbases, they're just standard duty officers.
On fed-side the elachi proc hasn't added any value at all to any of the duty officers, with talk about the voth and the Dyson Sphere - they don't seem all that useful.
Just another scammer.
