Oh-oh, don't be so quick to throw your life away . We are getting close to 1000 lock boxes as the sample size here, which is quite representative. So for all items at 5% and higher chances the numbers are pretty accurate with a high certainty. With the < 5% values, they could change more, relatively speaking.

To make myself clear on the second point: It's a big difference if the temp timeship is 0.3% or 0.5%, because that makes a difference of more than 100 lock boxes you are expected to open before you find one. However, it is statistically close to impossible, that with a sample size of 2000 or 3000 you would find the chance of a timeship climbing to 1% or more.

I can't speak for the person you're asking, but for myself the dollar amount is zero: whatever I win cost me nothing. It was all earned simply by playing a couple of hours a day.
100 keys from just playing? No disrespect but what's your secret? do you play 24/7 and how do you make a living?...curious to know.....

135 lockboxes and no "Wells" class for me :/

Not sure if I want to do another 50 for the Lobi or just sell the keys and buy it off the market.

Some are that lucky with regard to the Wells class - I received mine opening a box with key nine of the first ten-pack I brought.

And have to say, I LOVE it - didn't think anything would get me out of my Fleet Nova class, but this did and I don't plan on using anything else for my Sci for the forseeable future.

I got the Wells on my fifth box.

I was very surprised.

I received the Time Ship after my 18th key and gave the ship to my Gorn KDF Science officer. She really fits a gap in their shipyard, and I frankly don't like the aesthetics on the Wells class very much. I especially like the appearance of the KDF version of this ship.

Now to start saving up for the Mobius...

So, to give the results in another form from this page:

http://www.stowiki.org/Temporal_Lock_Box#Odds

Based on observations by other users in the same thread for a total of 4 Time ships in 1102 Boxes

That's basically about .3% chance to get a timeship.....hideous!

This is also equivalent 137,750 ZEN (at 125 Zen per key which doesn't include sale numbers but normal price)

Considering that 10,000 ZEN is $100.00, lets break this down even further and say that for the total of 4 timeships, it would cost $1377.50 to buy the keys.

Now let's divide that by 4 (total timeships) and that is approximately $344.38 per person at the given statistics...


All I can say is wow... white collar crime!
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"
