Due to ongoing PvE queue and reward balance changes in Delta Rising, some dilithium reward amounts listed below may be incorrect.[1][2]

In Star Trek Online, Dilithium is a major form of currency predominantly earned and used in the end game. Players can use dilithium to purchase various things ranging from new ships when the player reaches a new rank to new officers, equipment (Space and ground), upgrading or re-engineering equipment, and via crafting materials.

Dilithium is further subdivided into 2 separate sub-currencies:

  • Dilithium Ore (icon: Dilithium Ore icon.png) The currency is initally given out to characters as Dilithium Ore, which is a time-based currency (~480 Dilithium Ore icon.png per 15 minutes of gameplay according to Cryptic) in that it is obtained from certain missions, mostly repeatable every 20 hours, that require time for a player to complete. Currently the only use for Dilihium Ore is refining it into Refined Dilithium (see below). Refining is available via the following methods (if an account has multiple characters, the below limits apply to each character independently):
  • Refined Dilithium (icon: Refined dilithium icon.png). Refined Dilithium can be used in the following ways:

Each character has a 10 million Dilithium Ore icon.png Dilithium Ore balance limit and also a 10 million Refined dilithium icon.png Refined Dilithium balance limit at any given time. Any Dilithium Ore or Refined Dilithium received to exceed these balance limits would be lost.

PvE queue[edit | edit source]

All STFs and event-type missions accessible form the PvE queue grant a set amount of dilithium upon completion according to their difficulty level:

  • Normal - 360 Dilithium Ore icon.png
  • Advanced - 720 Dilithium Ore icon.png
  • Elite - 1,440 Dilithium Ore icon.png

Fleet actions reward 480 Dilithium Ore icon.png for space, and 640 Dilithium Ore icon.png for ground maps. [3] There is also a daily mission for a random fleet action rewarding 960 Dilithium Ore icon.png and 50 Fleet Marks [4].

PvP and global PvE[edit | edit source]

Empire Defense[edit | edit source]

Missions no longer rewarding dilithium[edit | edit source]

Foundry[edit | edit source]

Foundry has been shut down in April 2019.

Authors of user-generated missions can also be donated 25, 50 or 100 Refined dilithium icon.png (refined!) by any player who completes their missions.

Duty Officer Assignments[edit | edit source]

Most Duty Officer Assignments provide a small amount of Dilithium (usually between 5 to 50 Dilithium Ore icon.png, with 125 to 150 Dilithium Ore icon.png on critical success) and a few provide larger quantities.

Reputation System Projects[edit | edit source]

All projects rewarding 800 or 2000 reputation points give 140 Dilithium Ore icon.png or 340 Dilithium Ore icon.png, respectively. There are also special projects which grant more dilithium:

Continued support projects are more profitable than exchanging marks via "Ongoing Efforts" Projects in the long term as they offer a better mark to dilithium ratio (~1:23 vs 1:10) but need to be reslotted and filled once per hour for maximum efficiency.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Dilithium Vouchers[edit | edit source]

Q: What are “Fleet-Only Dilithium” and “Reputation-Only Dilithium”?
A: These are special Vouchers that fulfill the same purpose as existing Dilithium, but can only be used to fulfill Project requirements for the respective features, either Fleets or Reputations. These Dilithium Vouchers does not need to be refined, and cannot be traded for Zen. Projects that require Dilithium will deduct from the appropriate Voucher pool before deducting from your Refined Dilithium.
