Sorry, but the Elachi box sucks:

The escort has decent stats, but isn't popular. The look just doesn't appeal. It's not all cool and spiky like the tal'shiar ships.

Better luck next time, maybe try a box from a group that people have actually heard of and care about.
Not popular? By who's standards? You're entitled to your opinion, obviously, but that's all it is - an opinion. I've seen numerous Elachi ships since the lockbox was released and own the Escort myself. Okay, perhaps it isn't THE most popular lockbox ship, but it's definitely popular enough that lots of players are using it.

Reference the Tal Shair ships; "Cool and spiky"?? Forced to disagree with you there - I don't find ANYTHING particularly "cool" about the Tal Shiar ships. And to be honest, I have yet to see one that did anything particularly effective in combat; heck, my little Fleet Nova spent most of an STF having to frequently heal one a few days back. They're all looks. If you like looking a random spiky nonsense.

The Elachi ships are unique and interesting, I own the Escort and find it an absolute BLAST to fly, and I could not disagree more about it's appearance - it certainly doesn't look like anything else that has appeared in Trek. The same definitely CANNOT be said about the Tal Shiar Nadara clones, pandering to those who will buy anything with a 'Borg' reference.
Personal T6 Ship Wishlist:

Nova/Rhode Island class with Hybrid Pilot BOFF seat.

That is all. (guess this wasn't really a 'list' after all!)
