Without alphas we would be bored and have nothing to do.
Nearly all of the fun in high-sec is pesky little freetards creating drama for each other. My lowsec corp uses alphas for their resourcefulness, cunning and hardwork. They are our miners. Some of them have better PvP skills than the rest of us.

Here are some thoughts:
Ability to train all skills for six months only.
Ability to fly every ship up to dreadnought for six months. After six months they can only fly battlrcruisers or cruisers.
Your thoughts are generally appreciated.
