I will pass on this.
I'd rather do the Tribbles before this.
Sure, more NPCs make it seem more lively, but those NPCs couldn't be more generic and they just got ported over from the other Starbases and Quonos.
What I think about when i decide if a special project is worh doing it's the RP value.
Open blast shutters? Works. Check.
Consoles? Why not? Check.
Tribbles? Kinda cute, but ALL the time forever? Not so much.
Improved Bar? Sure thing. Check.
Generic NPCs not wearing the fleet uniform? Hell no.
