While that is true, it is also completely irrelevant to the fact that such a situation is actually possible, which was all that I said.

I got only one red box from the race and rewarded me with a Exocomp pet.

"Completely irrelevant" is a bit of an overstatement...

Ive been running the race every single day with 5 characters, and I have yet to see a single Red Gift Box.
My Red box had a Blue box in it. I imagine Q was laughing at me.

Not at all. Whether this specific situation fits the bill or not is irrelevant to the fact that is is possible for something to be both financially successful and a PR disaster. That does not mean this specific situation is, only that such a situation is possible. The former is irrelevant to the latter.

Just trying to lighten the mood, puddin...

I honestly see this whole situation as a few people trying to make a mountain out of an ant hill..

heck, I was in a random STF group with 3 people in jem hadar ships early this morning, none of them had @handles I recognized from the forums... so I think the general playerbase is oblivious to any "scandal" going on with the ship..

Only the best escort in the game. Yeah, I'm sure all the cruiser fans don't care. I don't care about Enterprise-F either.

The chances of getting it from the races is essentially zero. Even if you run them with 5 characters a day, every day for the month, your odds of getting the bug are 1-2% (depending on the rarity of the red boxes, which seem pretty damn rare).
