Z-store = typically Account bound for ships Plus your guaranteed to get it
Lock box = character bound and Random chance to get it, Random chance means more Zen being spent on the boxes, More zen spent is more in there pockets, Remember Even if you trade Dilithium in for Zen, That Zen is coming out of a players wallet and onto that market.

character bound = more money coming in if you say have 12 characters and want it on all 12.

I hear that! I thought about getting one for my To'Duj fighter + a single Cannon to have the look of a proper fighter!

Hopefully we'll get new stuff for the lobi store with the next lockboxes and you'll get rid off the current ones, since it's supposed to be a limited time offer.

I want new stuff to buy, not old goodies to buy again and again.

Plus the Lobi store items that are more character bound items.

Sure hope the price of the Ferengi set comes down from the 200 per piece it was, but I doubt it.

Wow no new lockbox.

I guess we know what the 1000 day Vet reward is then.

I had a sinking feeling the next box would be the cardassian and then we would cycle through them all over again, but this seems not so bad. Im guessing in a week we will see the new box, but for now we get the chance to get one of the older ships.

And retroactively fixing the old boxes shows that you are really listening to feedback, and now those who missed the chance to open these old boxes can with the added improvements. Bravo

I have a sort of twisted hope that the exchange is flooded with galors so they get cheap and i can buy one

Not quite... this promotion runs to the 27th... after which I assume we'll get another kind of lockbox. That new one could still have the timeship rewards that people are speculating about.

Also, it sounds like the Lobi store is being changed so that previously-offered items will remain in stock indefinitely? So we'll basically get access to new stuff occasionally and have the opportunity to buy the stuff we missed before.

I think I'm going to be opening quite a few Ferengi lockboxes I saved up, based on the changes to that lockbox. I still want that D'Kora! But having better quality drops and more Lobi rewards is what makes me want to buy keys for 'em.

Dammit, I thought it was time for another Fek'Ihri story arc. Guess I'll have to wait for my K'Norr.
