Excellent.

Lots of good action shots that really show off the new items. I think that's probably the best spotlight video to date.

Nice video but a bit too fast imo, its a bit missleading, for exemple the launch time on the crafts from elachi battleship is like half slower then shown in the video.
Funny thing is that the summoned crafts get the visuals from the gear the main ship has. Some ppl might like this, but i really dont, it looks damm ugly with the oversized borg stuff on it for example.

Nice try, but I don't think it's going to work.

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.

The mirror ships are reruns again, which is still crappy.

The Elachi weapons are meh.

The doffs suck. No new powers, so just generic purples with + vs Elachi. Yeah. Who cares? Elachi are in a handful of missions you may or may not do while leveling, and then you never see them again. That's the lamest bonus ever.

The console doesn't come boxed, so you can't stack them up and that's pretty irritating.

And most importantly, the Elachi didn't come from any of the shows or movies, so hardly anyone knows who they are and most of us don't care.

So again, nice try with the vid but this box is still going to flop. The upcoming lobi promo with the discount will probably help more, people will open boxes to take advantage of the discount. But, if they're smart, they'll open previous boxes with more worthwhile offerings instead of the the Elachi box.

Better luck next time, maybe try a box from a group that people have actually heard of and care about.

Sorry, the elachi are in a show..if you ever heard of Star Trek : Enterprise or watched it, you would know just how incorrect you are.

Try again!

Yeah, and if more people than just you had watched enterprise that crap wouldn't have gotten cancelled, shunted to UPN, then cancelled again, and then it might actually count.

Actually, you might want to look at this link from memory-alpha which places them in the TNG episode Schisms: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Sola...form#Apocrypha.

I think that makes them canon, they just didn't have a name like Species 8472.

Now now, you know Cryptic are a bit backwards in such things...

You are right though, it is the worst one to date.

It has the least appeal, and just makes the whole LOR expansion an excuse to make a quick buck off their latest bad guys.
