In the Red Holiday Gift Boxes, if you can find any.

That ship was never in any of the lockboxes currently available.

6 Lock box keys costing approx 8Million EC, opened 6 of the new boxes and all I got were duty officer packs and 20 lobi. I made back less than 1 Million EC by selling the doff packs...so I wont ever ever open a lockbox again.

Same here - purchased a 10-key pack, used nine of them, and received eight DOFF packs and a shield pack containing a shield that is, shall we say, inferior to my current MKXII MACO. Didn't really count the lobi, but it wasn't much. Not really very impressed. I have to say, the cynic in me can't help but think Lockbox key sale = inferior items from lockboxes.

Granted, I'll probably be able to donate the DOFF's to fleet projects somewhere down the line, or sell them - but I do wish I had used the keys on Tholian boxes - they were MUCH better than these ones.

The whole reason I didn't bother with the Ferengi boxes was because the Cardassian boxes I opened at the time yeilded 'prizes' that were as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. The whole reason I purchased a key 10-pack yesterday was that the Tholian boxes were worthwhile and I assumed that the 'new' ones would follow suite, but I've reverted back to thinking that they're a waste of time and, more importantly, money.

The problem is, you stopped 194 keys short of the average needed to get a ship, which is the only thing 'worthwhile' in those boxes.

Yeah I dont see how the lock box ship is worth:

Approx 310million EC + cost of lockboxes on exchange
Or
18,547 ZEN/ $185 (at current sale cost) + cost of lockboxes on exchange
Or
358 days or di refining + cost of lockboxes on exchange

Has anyone actually done repeat tests to work out the % chance of a good loot drop from the lockboxs?

Yea, the content has been altered for all ferengi lockboxes, regardless of when they where obtained.

Spent 5 million EC by sniping low priced keys off the exchange (5 keys in all) and used them to open 3 cardie boxes and 2 ferengi. Purple body Armour, 3 doff packs and a purple gamma quadrant doff pack. meh! On the plus side I used the lobi to buy items selling for a boatload on exchange and got my 5 million EC back.
Still to do it on my oher toons but I'm not upset at not getting a ship yet, I knew the odds where as astronomical as all the air molecules in the world moving to Wales for the weekend...

What lobi store item got you 5 mil? Even the Widdow fighter only brings around 15 Mil and that costs 200 Lobi.

Most of the pets seem to cost around 1 Mil EC and those cost 20 Lobi. And that's an average 5 boxes worth of Lobi.
