Simply put, a lockbox item is not a viable way to fix a faction-related imbalance. No matter how large or small.
Not disagreeing with that. Just saying that giving Attack ship owners a unique ship skin AND the ability to buy Attack ship pets is a touch unfair in and of itself.

A: We are not providing exact numbers the prizes contained within the Dominion Lock Box. The average value for a normal Lock Box is around 175 Zen.

Why? Bit shady isn't it?
I dunno. Anyone stupid enough to pay for keys with actual Zen given what they cost is likely also not the kind of person with enough neurons firing to even understand how odds work in the first place. That seems like the kind of thing you could Venn Diagram pretty easily.

The Cheapest way to get these items is to sell keys on exchange for 1.4 to 1.6 mil a pop, and USe EC to Buys Ships. When Keys were going for 1 mil per and Zen was at its lowest i was ablle to scrounge up 100 keys. The 2 sales helped alot. With that I just bought both ships for under 200 mil EC. Anyone that keeps opening boxes to get the ships is going to spend a ton to get both of them.

Ok the fact that this reward pack is bound to the toon they are opened on is complete crap. I can understand that if are account bound.

So lets look at this. I opened 100 Box's today and I got 8 VIPS and 6 preferred. This means to use the Items I won in this lockbox. I have to do a daily mission for 116 days!!!

REALLY ?? I can trade CXP bonus, Fleet Mark bonus, skill point bonus. So any of my toons can use them. but this one that is in place of those are bound to only one toon.

Total BS that in a box i opened today, the soonest i can use the item is May 20th 2013

Assuming the loot table is structured like the last lockbox, the odds of getting the grand prize are about 1/278. It's perfectly normal to open a number of packs and only get the basic ~175 Zen prizes.

I absolutely agree with this.

Not being able to buy jem'hadar attack ship pets renders this ship useless. 800 lobi for a useless ship, that's very expensive
There are plenty great choices... especially on the KDF side. From what I have read, the Jem'Hadar Attack ship hangar is not going to make or break this ship.
