I agree it might open up the galaxy, however what irks me is that these items persist when your ship is destroyed, which does not make it consistent with anything else.
If your ship is destroyed, you lose exploration data, bonds etc, but somehow you magically manage to keep your synthesis materials of which you might have tons of.
logic didn’t dictate much though process on that now did they.
