Yeah they pay 450,000k for a single alpha.

But the reputation gain is laughable, I feel like the alpha core could be better used for your colonies in the long run rather than selling it for a +2 reputation gain.

Isn't it possible to farm alpha cores in high danger systems though. If you need more for your colonies you could always get more.

I like to imagine that the admin you pawn the core to evaluates you as "enthusiastic, but severely lacking in judgement" for exactly this reason, which sort of explains why the rep gain is so small.

A great explanation, but then I expect them to give me rep for NOT selling any alpha cores :)
