Just go to Q's Winter Wonderland and get the boxes for free. It's like Nagus said, this is basically what they did on Champions for Halloween. I got a buttload of the free Halloween bags in Champions and got some cool free stuff. Some of them include C-store items.

I think everyone should also keep in mind that if history has taught us anything it is that anything "rare" or "exclusive" will EVENTUALLY be in the C-store

I think you can say the same thing you would about people who gamble in RL: if you choose to gamble, then you only have yourself to blame if you are unhappy with the results

You spent $175 (USD) on those stupid boxes?!

I guess Cryptic was pretty smart when they put them in the C-store.

I have to admit, I have just been badly burned with this. The idea of a 'chance' of getting this new ship meant for me in the end the odds were so far out, it almost became a gambling like obession and an expensive one. 16 later, all I got was 'currency' to get two scarfs, blue ground weapons and tut I already had via c-store on account wide unlock.

The saying 'money for old rope' came to mind and I was disgusted with myself for allowing to be conned in to buying crap in the game under the premise of sommething new and fun, like so many of us have waited for for best part of a year.

Merry X-mas Cryptic, as it wasnt for me. Who remembers the fountin? Same kind of loot system only customers faithful to them during the content dought, get stung with this while actually paying real life money for the privilege!

I would have got that ship outright as a collector. I wont be so fooled with this rubbish again. You really got my hopes up and let me down immensely.

Extremely ddisgruntled and even more so with myself for being such a bloody fool!

Looks like 'EVENTUALLY' = 1 year.

Q: Will this ship go into the C-Store later?
A: We are not planning to put this ship into the C-Store for direct sale, at least within the coming year. It will be available via the Red Holiday Gift during this event, then it will no longer be available for some unknown period of time. We may decide to make it available again via a similar item late in 2012.

Are those Photonic Tribbles tradeable? It's the only item I'm really interested in getting from the boxes. :p

Also, I definitely hope that the Jem'Hadar ship becomes available later, like Nagus believes. I don't even want it, but having one of the (arguably) most powerful escorts in the game only available via gambling would have to be one of the worst decisions Cryptic's ever made. And that's saying something.
