One thing I haven't seen anybody bring up is that the other stuff that comes out of the boxes itself has EC value. Doffs, even white/green ones, in aggregate add up to a lot of EC. In fact, one of the games to make EC is to get the Doff minipacks that people don't open from the Exchange, open them, then flip the Doffs that come out for profit. Some regular Doffs are worth a decent amount of EC, especially if you get one blue or purple. Certain special Doffs like the attack pattern ones are worth a lot on their own. Even the skill point bonuses are worth something.
So, even if you don't get what you want out of the boxes, if you sell off whatever you do get and put the money aside, eventually you will have enough to get your ship. How much it'll cost you in Zen, I'm not sure, but there are numerous other ways to get EC. And, who knows, part way along you might get lucky...
