Well they finally told us how much dilithium were are getting for hitting captain. It's 80,000. Though apparently we can onlky claim it on one character.
Also they mentioned a nice Gold perk, basically if you don't play every day to refine dilithium what you have will be automatically refined when you next log in, but a week is the longest time this will cover.
The 500 day reward is being replace by a VA ship token.
And their adding an automatic refine feature that will cover the time between log ins up to a week.
