Have opened 90 of these lockboxes and not one Wells Class. Not only that but 8 Gamma Doff packs "IN A ROW" multiple times, broke up by other prizes that seem worthless ie The Weapon packs and 100 Fleet Mark bonuses.. All and all in 90 only 2 rares both the "Single Temporal Officer"

Just curious what the hit rate is on these??

check the temporal lock box chances on stowiki.org and you'll see. The chance table there is levi3's experiment with 145 boxes. And he got no Wells.

There is a reason I don't open lockboxes. I know the drop rates are almost stupidly miniscule. It's kind of your fault for participating in the lock box scam.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

if people stopped buying the damned keys and opening the "stealing your money boxes" they'd stop doing them. it's supply and demand... the worst imaginable kind... the most evil part of capitalism... taking advantage of addiction and obsession for personal gain... no different than a drug dealer or cigarette seller... the difference being that it's more likened to the most shady parts of Nevada... the kind of place that makes sure you lose almost 100% of the time... but in the case of lock boxes, you pay real money and get nothing real in return... not only that, but STO will not be around 5 years from now so you are paying for a VERY short term investment... and 5 years is being optimistic, Perfect World doesn't keep games around that long... STO was doomed the moment they bought the game.
why is it that so many bugs and glitches go ignored?

The only good part I have had as a result of lockboxes is the fact that idiots will buy the keys. So naturally I take advantage of this by buying keys and selling them to stupid people. I feel bad since I am not only profiting off of this scam but I am also encouraging it by buying the keys in the first place...
