The Problem: Most good Sci-Fi bases and stations are made of metal, and you know what takes a long time to get in high quantities? Metal. The Solution: To add more purpose to asteroid bases, make a late game machine similar to the compressor and refinery, that converts an ungodly amount of asteroid rock into miscellaneous metal bars or ores. This set up would require large amounts of power and reward players who set up extensive infrastructure. It wouldn't make the asteroid miner obsolete because of its power requirements, and the large rock volume required. The Block itself could look like a tier two compressor, or maybe a larger custom model. I think the mod lacks many ISRU (in sity resource utilization) technologies, and would benefit from this.
