Jem Bug in box 2. Woooohooooo!!! Off to the casinos while my luck holds.

What I've learned from lock boxes:

1) If I really want a ship, I do better buying keys and selling them on the exchange, using the EC to buy the ship I want from the exchange. That way I know exactly what it will cost me, and whether or not I'm willing to ante up. The downside is that others have to ignore this so that I can sell my keys, and so that the ships will be available on the exchange.

2) I only play lock boxes if the minimum guaranteed items are worth the cost to me.

3) I might get lucky, but I probably won't, and I'm sure not going to count on it.
