Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Just to add on to what I wrote yesterday, here are some figures from STOWiki. It provides a rough idea of the amount of resources required to get a Tier 1 Starbase.

Tier 1 Starbase
1,080 Fleet Marks
64,800 Dilithium
48 non-civilian duty officers
825 Industrial Energy Cells
400 Self Sealing Stem Bolts
25 particle traces

Tier 1 Shipyard
540 Fleet Marks
10,500 Dilithium
5 tactical or security common (white) duty officers
300 Industrial Replicators
905 Shield Generators
150 Self Sealing Stem Bolts

Tier 1 Industrial Fabricator
540 Fleet Marks
32,400 Dilithium
24 engineering or operations common (white) duty officers
36,000 Bridge Officer Skill Points
250 Industrial Replicators
425 Industrial Energy Cells
100 Self Sealing Stem Bolts

The amount of resources required quadruples when going from Tier 1 to Tier 2. Its a very smart system. Early birds can chip in on the easy stuff like Industrial Replicators and Self Sealing Stem Bolts while the rest of the fleet will need to play the new content and new fleet actions in order to earn and contribute fleet marks or dilithium. Every resource that a member contributes will give the member a certain amount of Fleet Credit, which can be used to purchase better weapons, gear and starships.

For example, most of the new retrofit starships require 200k Fleet Credit and all "fleet retrofits" require 20k Fleet Credit plus "something" from the C-Store. So if you want better starships, you'll need to contribute a lot of resources.
