Exactly. The timeship lockbox could start appearing on Sept. 30 and still would be the latter part of the month. Although, why any company would release content on a Sunday is beyond me.

I've got a question...

Have the loot tables already been adjusted for the Cardassian and Ferengi lock boxes in-game, or will that only happen after the promotion starts?

If the point of re hatching these boxes is to give everyone a chance, which from this conversation seems to be the point.

Why not make them a per character unlock like they did w/ the stupid EV suits and place them on the c-store for 700 zen each?

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.
Ok, so what's "limited" about this promo? That the boxes are dropping again from killing mobs or is the updated loot table the limited part?

Because those dont sell since they are a)overpriced and b)character unlock and only play a role in exactly 3 mission areas (have you seen anyone doing LOL Nukara lately?).

Still nothing in that lobi store or lockbox worth blowing any dilithium over or actually paying for...

I believe those two timeship's will be the new 1000 day veteran rewards, but wont be long before we find out for sure.

That the old lockboxes are dropping again, they'll stop dropping after the 27th.
