My wife and I are also trying to collect all the scarves. My four toons all have at least one, and her toon hasn't earned one yet due to a comically pathetic overload of some of the gewgaws and a ludicrously skimpy underdistribution of others. Translation: she's got boatloads of candles and bells, but she needs some incense and ornaments.

I doubt you can win a Jem'hadar ship for free, just doing races, they want players to buy boxes from C-Store, more and more. I guess Q, isnt the Real Q, this race looks like a Ferengi plot
Anyways, it will be easier to find a Klingon, watching Hannah Montana than getting a Jem'Hadar ship just racing.

Isn't Q in the game supposed to be the son of Q (John de Lancie's character) and Q (Suzie Plakson's character)?

I forget how many races I've done between my five characters. On the first day, each got either a red or blue box. Then after that... nothing but greens.

I've tried runs where I raced like total rubbish. I've done flawless and fast runs too using motion accelerator and the winter tribble for added traction.

It doesn't seem to affect my results.

I've won two of them from red boxes I got in the race.:p Incredibly long odds, yes, but not impossible.


If it makes any difference, you can buy the red boxes on the exchange for about 3 million EC, so you don't have to waste money in the C-store if you don't want to.

Cryptic should have implemented box drops across all aspects of the game ad proportional rarities.

# 30 No red for me ... yet

I've been running the race every day since the event started with 8 toons. (Except for one KDF who had to sit out 2 days when they raised the level requirement.) I've seen mostly green boxes, with some blues. I don't have hard numbers, but I'd guess the drop rate of blue vs green is roughly 10%. I haven't gotten any red boxes yet.

I'm guessing the drop rate for red boxes is on the order of 0.65%, or roughly 1 in 153.8. Assuming the drop rate of Jem'Hadar ships from a red box is also 0.65%, that makes the odds of getting a Jem'Hadar ship by running the race roughly 1 in 23,668.6.

For the record, I don't expect to get a Jem'Hadar ship from the race, nor do I plan to spend C-store points on buying red boxes. I already have the other items that might drop out of a red box, so I don't see much point (for me, anyway).
