So let me get this straight ... You can buy the winter package which will give you only *one* of the following at what is a starship price? (ie. You can get screwed as easily as you can win something decent?)

The best thing about presents is that you never know what you're going to get, but it's usually something good!



Buy a Winter Package to give to a friend, or open it yourself to get one of the following tradable items:



Unique Jem'Hadar Attack Ship
Faction-appropriate Duty Officer Pack
Holographic Science Bridge Officer
8-hour XP Boost
Gekli Space Pet
Targ Pup Pet (Klingon Empire characters only)
Exocomp Pet (Starfleet characters only
Eisilum Crystal Horta Ally
Polytrinic Acid Horta Ally
Holographic Tribble
1-hour XP Boost
Blue Winter Package with a space or ground weapon and holiday crafting materials

The Jem'Hadar Attack Ship is a small starship, similar to an Escort or Destroyer. The staple ship of the Dominion fleet, these ships were used with deadly effect during the Dominion War. Small, fast and maneuverable, the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship packs a punch that is larger than expected for a ship of its size.



Recently a handful of these vessels have been found adrift and abandoned in the Alpha Quadrant and both Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force have been scrambling to acquire as many of these derelicts as possible for study. The ships are always found undamaged, but with all systems offline and registering unusually high neutrino signatures. The ships are models commonly seen in the late 24th century, but all appear to be in prime condition.



The Dominion has not expressed any interest in retrieving these ships, and has not responded to subspace messages sent from Qo'noS or Deep Space Nine. For now, the appearance of the Jem'Hadar Attack Ships remains a mystery.



Note: Because the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship is a tradable item, it is unlocked per character and not per account. After unlock, go to the Shipyard on Earth Spacedock, Starbase 39-Sierra, Deep Space 9 or Qo'noS to select this ship.



Minimum Rank: Rear Admiral/Brigadier General
Crew: 50
Weapons: 4 Fore, 3 Aft
Device Slots: 2
Bridge Officer Stations: 1 Lieutenant Commander Tactical; 1 Commander Tactical; 1 Ensign Engineering; 2 Lieutenant Universal
Console Upgrades: 4 Tactical; 4 Engineering; 1 Science
Base Turn Rate: 20 degrees per second
Impulse Modifier: 0.22
Hull Strength: 33,000
+10 Power to Weapons, +5 Power to Engines
Can Load Cannons

Its gambling, plain and simple. And if you choose to gamble, then you only have yourself to blame if you are unhappy with the results.

Wow, thank you Cryptic for once again smacking loyal customers in the face. It honestly is no surprise that you would turn around and give the other referral program perks away, it's just a bit shocking you decided to do this now when you already got a good number of loyal customers mad at you already.

And if you’ve really earned Q’s favor, you have a chance to win a special new starship – one of the Captured Jem’Hadar Attack Ship that Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force have been finding scattered across the quadrant. This attack ship is a fully-functional unique escort vessel that can be commanded by an admiral. Only a few will be found, and there is no other way to acquire them. Thus, you’ll never see more than a few of these ships in sector space, and having one is a special experience that not all admirals will experience.
BWAHAHAHAHA!

Oh, this is rich. This just... really, this takes the Denobulan cake!

I hate to sound like a troll, but this is going to be immensely entertaining to watch.

It may not be in keeping with the "spirit" of the Season, but it is definitely in keeping with the fact that Christmas has become a secular holiday and is all about making money for businesses.

Yes... because it's part of a gamble means they are handing it out to everybody.
