This is ridiculous. The Seeker Droid/Binocular rewards should be enhanced to bring more people in, not nerfed
There should be a (very very small but still) chance to dig up the Czerka Crate-O-Matic with it, Encrypted Datacubes, companion gifts etc. Lots of stuff that although may not necessarily be uber expensive (companion gifts or Datacubes surely ain't) would still feel like worth and/or useful rewards. Heck, even the trash items that sold for nice credits weren't that bad, at worst case we were making some cash. And the green mods were useful as hell for REing. Absolutely no idea why Bioware did this.
