However, the hope that items will go directly to the Zen store comes from my despise of the lottery system in this game. How many Star Trek episodes you've seen and books/comics you've read where some kind of lottery is played? You tell me.
If this game didn't have those boxes all over the place, I'd probably go for LTS instantly. Dunno what the next season brings, if I get to see more boxes than everything else, I'll probably move away from this rediculousity and give the money elsewhere.
I understand certain materials wouldn't be available, IE the Type 6, 900-Day Veteran, and Fleet ship materials. But I could definitely see that old Type 5 material and Aeon type style materials in the Z-store. Maybe even that gold material we were teased with awhile back.
