It doesn't sound like they will be putting the Jem'Hadar ship in the C-Store at all.
You bet they will, but not before people have spent enough c-points on gift boxes that have a very rare chance to contain the ship.
Each box 100 points

Meh, I only used the 400 points I got for free and managed to get a photonic tribble and enough holiday stuff to get the scraf after running the race. So not too bad.

So, what's the trick to doing better than green holiday box in the race thing? I don't seem to be figuring it out, and ran it a few times now. There's no clock, so is it random, or is there a trick?

I believe it's just random. I ran it 4 times (fell off the course once) and I got 2 green, and 1 blue box. The best item was a purple MK IX gun. As long as you win, you get a random box, but green are the most common.

I think after I do the event for a couple of days, if I don't get any blue boxes, or decent items in blue boxes, then I'll buy a couple from the c-store to see what I can get.

The exchange was crazy last night with people buying and selling hortas, gekli's, and exocomps. I picked up 2 hortas for only 5 EC each.

Oh so that's why there were Horta's on the exchange. I managed to snag one last night.

I believe you can buy a lot of cheap junk people get from multiple gift boxes they don't need in the next week.
They really waste a lot of money on this.

Anyone know how I can get about 6 or 7 million ECs in a really fast amount of time?

no, they won't - a BIG part of PWEs success with their other F2P games (including the Western versions) is the cheap cost (for one) of the 'grab bag' with an item they KNOW players want with a miniscule chance of getting it awarded via said 'grab bag'; and further know a small obsessive portion of said playerbase will spend QA LOT to finally get it.

Thus, those grab bag items will NEVER appear directly for sale on the MT store; they'll just rotate in various 'grab bag' offeres that appear near some majoor holiday (or event) once per profit report quarter.

And it obviously works (which is the same reason you see the 'Hi I'm a Nigerian Prince...." e-mail scams as the reason they bstill exist is there are indeed enough clueless people who respond thinking it's a real offer."

The 'Grab Bag' ISN'T a scam per se; but I guess PWE (and othger companies) have found there are enough obbsessive/compulsives out there willing to spend outrageous sums for certain items.

Anyone else completely fed up of the signal missions? Literally every time I try and enter one to defend a sector, I just get the option to bugger off back into sector space.

It's remarkably frustrating.

You could sell your Blue and Purple DOFFs.

I think the actual quote is - not for the next 12 months.

Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about. *ducks*

Actually, sell a number of green and blue doffs will get you there. I had my Klingon toon sell two regular doffs and a green one in which I got 800,000ec for them

Oh good. I'll just have to sell about 500 green DOFFs for the bug ship then, considering current Exchangeprices.
