how about zeroing out the stars in weekly operations every time it rotates around.  Once u get the 5 stars there isn't much of a reason to keep playing it.

Although, I regularly play operations even after I've five-starred them, think I've five-starred all of them up to this point from season 1 and 2, because it is a great way to earn credits and grind out xp on tier VI and VII ships to fully upgrade them before taking them into random battles,  I think it is a good idea.Plus 1.

That and/or achievements, rewards for 5-staring an operation "x" amount of times

Good way to grind ship XP.  I use it like target practice that's more challenging than normal Co-op.  I use it to grind modules for the T6 and T7 ships.  Not a great deal of fun taking a stock ship into Randoms when you're bottom tier.  

But if you've already ground past T7 in every line, I could see it being a tad dull.  I also use it to grind Commander XP for the Perth and Blys given they have no tech tree.

That would be beyond insane.  Getting new 10 point captains every week would be way too good considering how easy they are.  
I play them a lot because they are easy ways to grind Captains.

No, you don't need a 10 point captain every week just for blowing up some bots.  If you play it well, you'll get tons of XP and credits,  anyway.  Also, WG's not going to give a premium day every week, either.

It's a lot better source than XP and credits than Co-Op, if you don't like Randoms, or bored of them for the moment.

I don't remember what the first 3 stars are.  Those might be ok to be repeatable, but, I don't remember what they are at the moment.

well the rewards doesn't have to b the same,  take the 10 point capt. out, I have 4    19 point commanders already so a 10 point isn't beneficial to me.

You could do a reduced version of this without giving away 10-point commanders like candy.  After the first iteration, in which the first set of rewards are given, the first 5-star result during any new cycle of a given operation yields something smaller - some flags or the like.

Or, you could simply make some of the scenario achievements (Sea Star, Assistant, etc.) yield (small) rewards.

A reward of pennants (the better flags) might be interesting once a week for 4 or 5 stars.

WG cut out Narai (apparently,) because it was being used to mercilessly farm credits and such. I doubt they’ll do something making it easy to do the same in any of the other ops.

Well it was more for its exp generation of having a big payout for a rather small time spent.

Got to a point where it was easy to get 20k xp games using ships like the Atlanta and earning in excess of 10k free xp each game.

Well what they could do is something similar to how campaigns work.  Take all of the stars you have earned and add them together.  Every 10 stars you get a crate or something.  It would just be a running tally of however many stars you have earned.  They could also treat them like a currency and have you trade them in.

5 Stars = 5 regular flags
10 Stars = 1 crate
15 Stars = 1 Ocean Soul camo
20 Stars = 1 Day of Premium

They could add in whatever they want to make things balanced for their economy.  It would give a use to the stars after we have earned the normal rewards.

So I guess doing this consistently and making 10,000,000+ credits a day, has no benefit. Not to mention Elite XP and free XP.

Rewards should not be the sole reason to play any game mode. But I will say once you win all 5 stars the first time they should at least give you 4 or 5 Flags for each star you win thereafter.
