Right now, freeing slaves provides very little reward, relative to the tremendous to high reward of donating them, selling them through abuse of the 1 slave bug, or feeding them to the fabricator. While I like that the 'good' option is not definitively the best, giving the player more choice, it might benefit from being a bit more balanced, so that it isn't universally undesirable either.

For that, I suggest giving the player an honorary militia rank upon freeing a certain number of slaves at a Militia station, similar to how the Fleet offers a rank to players donating medical supplies as thanks. It makes sense in terms of plot, after all - you'd need to have taken out a fairly well defended Sung station in order to get slaves in the first place.

It might also help if donating slaves weren't by far the best (practically the only) way to get Domina powers. If contemplating or donating money or other items actually gave a relevant amount of Domina XP and slaves gave less, for instance.

Absolutely. That'd be a huge improvement to the Domina power balance.
