Tholian Lock Boxes

Captain's Blog Stardate 90163.11

So Tholian lock boxes are here. I've actually become tired of the whole lock box idea. It was fun at first, not so much anymore. Though I will say that Cryptic has finally done a good job with these boxes. I like how Cryptic has included a few different ships and other great rewards into the boxes as well as in the lobi store. Good job all around here. Oh and the drop rate seems less (thank goodness).

By the way, if you haven't done so already, head to Starfleet or KDF academy and into the holodeck. There is a holographic simulation of Worf from the first season of The Next Generation. If you talk to him you can get the Season 1 TNG uniform. This was actually a nice way for Cryptic to celebrate the 25th anniversary of TNG. I hope they celebrate DS9, Voyager, and yes even Enterprise when they reach their 25th anniversaries.

Not much else has happened in STO this week. Let me know what you think of these lock boxes as compared to the other ones. Do you like the rewards inside? Do you have lock boxes? Let me know. If you have any of these new ships I'm also interested in knowing how you like it.

I quite like the Tholian lock boxes. They dish out some decent rewards such as the Tholian warfare specialists that give a good damage boost against certain types of enemies ( I have a Space one against Borg :D can anyone say STF?). The mirror ships are decent. The fleet credit bonuses are really nice to have. And even the duty officer mini-packs are great for loading up on doffs for the starbase. Oh and the upgrade to the Tholian ground set in the lobi store is incredible. The shield alone is worth the 150 lobi crystals. Also, I like that they don't drop every chance they get.

I'm glad to hear that the current lockboxes actually give useful items. For me, the whole concept of lockboxes is unattractive. If I'm going to spend C-Points or Zen, I want to know what I'm getting. Besides, I have more than enough ships for my purposes. Another one would simply be another set of Weapons/Equipment/Consoles I would have to buy to get it up to speed. I must admit, i find some of the new Fleet ships very intriguing. If they didn't cost so much, I might buy one or three.

Glad to hear that we now have Flagships for the fleet. I also like the names. Sciencia really is Potentia, and now the whole Galaxy will see it every time our fearless leaders take flight.
