Yes, I'm well aware of that. But the red gift boxes are, essentially, a lottery. Rare chance of getting them, then a super rare chance of getting what you want. In this case, you can get the lottery ticket for a lottery ticket with 5 minutes of your time. I think we're not in disagreement, but rather, I was unclear.

My reading of the Dev Blog and FAQ suggest that these are intended to be ultra rare. In the Blog, JHenig states that only a few will be found and this is the only way to acquire them. We will not be seeing many of them fly around the galaxy.

Kudos to you for getting one, but I fear the rest of us may not be so fortunate.
Alas he has given me hope. I will spend my first stipend on these winter items in hopes of a shiny Scarab ship.

Completing the race got me a green gift box. On the 6 characters that I got a green gift box with, all 6 got a green Mk X item or lower. I'm not sure if the good items (i.e. Jem Hadar Ship, Photonic Boff) drop out of the green boxes.

No, only the red ones have the c-store items and the ship. There is a chance to get blue and red boxes by winning the race. I guess itīs a small one though.

I was under the impression this was a Rare Holiday gift ship and not a new roll-out to the escort line per se.
Meaning that the Jembug ship was never meant to be a new addition to anyone's ships of the line, but a bonus vessel outside factions.

Funny, that an omnipotent being is incapable of mastering the English language. What Q hands out are prizes, not gifts.

Only in the sense that probably not everyone will get one. So only lucky (or crazy rich) people will have one.

We stand a pretty good chance, I suppose, if we do it 5x or more a day throughout the month. And by pretty good, I mean not hopeless.

Create as many characters as you have slots just to do the race. The items are only bound if you open the boxes theyīre in.
