I also picked up the TNG season 1 uniform on all my toons. I decided to open the first Tholian lock box that I got and it contained a purple Tholian DOFF. The second one I opened contained a 20% Fleet Credit increase for up to 5000 Fleet Credits. Not too shabby on the first 2 boxes I opened.
I have opened one so far and got the FC increase also.
I must say that these latest boxes are the most sensible ones yet, since the rewards do not contain crap like one-usable combat pets or shield generators.
Also the TNG anniversary gift is a nice touch from Cryptic

I was on really briefly last night before the maintenance, and also has quick lock box success. I didn't open any of the Ferengi ones, , but decided to try one of these for a lark.

Fleet members on the chat at the time know I got this:

Nicely done !! I must say, so far the rewards are much better than previous lock boxes. Almost makes you want to open more of them.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

^IMO, the new boxes are actually worth spending money on this time. So far I've opened 7 boxes and received:

1x purple Tholian doff
2x 25,000 fleet credit bonus
2x doff mini-packs
2x purple MK XII phased tetryon weapons
~50 lobi

Not bad, I think.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Since these boxes do seem worth the effort, I'm thinking that I will use the dilithium earned by one of my toons to buy keys (after converting for zen on the dilithium exchange). I still using my other toons to save up for the Armitage. After that's purchased, it's maintenance - additional DOFF slots and bank slots, not to mention the other purple DOFF's I'm missing from Lt. Fera.

On that note, has anyone successfully completed the Support Arcanis Arm mission for the purple DOFF? I have tried it about 10 times with different variations of Purple and Blue Doffs, and I have yet get a critical success on it.

Just an FYI-if anyone is after fed mirror universe ships, they are currently selling on the exchange for less than master keys. At that price there's no reason to even bother with lock boxes.

Oh, that's good - I want the Sovy (it's a better fit for the Argus in the mirror configuration and Lex is a science captain). Must pick one up tonight then.

^Just remember the names are mirrored as well as the stats, so the sovereign is actually in the mirror star cruiser pack. I made this mistake the first time.

We should have a shiny looking Starbase in about 19 hours, 40 minutes or so.

Thanks for the heads up. I bought one of each of the mirror universe ships. I'll be sending the KDF ship to my Klingon toon to try out. Were you able to find any of the new consoles on the exchange?

Rats.. I will be out tomorrow night, so I won't be able to participate. Have fun and take screenshots !!

No problem.
I could be mistaken (it happens frequently), but I believe lock box consoles are bound.

I think it's automatic from memory.

I just won an orb weaver... but it went into my overflow bag and my overflow bag won't display! :'(

EDIT: Restarting worked. And that bridge is... interesting!

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Disappointed in my lock box experience. Made it sound like a better deal, so broke down and bought a key to try it out.

I got a couple Lobi crystals and a Phased Tetryon weapon (in the box, so don't know ship or ground yet). Not really anything that I'd consider WORTH anything, at least to me. Put the box back up on the exchange, as it looks like if I opened it, both things aren't worth much, but unopened, it's still around $400k. So, if the key cost $900k, I paid half a million for 4 Lobi crystals. Not exactly the value I was hoping for...
