Is the only way to get this console is by buying key to open boxes? can you buy lobi Crystal anywhere?

The only way you'll be able to afford it is by opening lockboxes. Lobi crystals cannot be bought.

wow well that can get expensive so... 5 crystals on average which is 40,000,000 for keys how much of that can I expect to recover in sell all of the extra stuff I get in the boxes?

Depends on what you get... if you focus on ferengi boxes, 1 D'kora and 10 ferengi duty officer packs will get your money back - on the other hand, 30 shield packs and 10 mirror universe recon science vessels will not get you much more than another key.

So ferengi is the best return on your EC?

Not sure about that... but cardassian and ferengi seem to have the in demand ships - if you're lucky enough to pull one. Tholian and Temproral ships seem less in demand.

The Ferengi Box gives the most (up to twenty) lobi crystals. The others only guarantee up to 8 or ten depending. (The Temporal lock box only gives up to 5 max)

It is only two hundred lobi crystals and thus, you could get the console relatively cheaply if you grind for dil and exchange for zen which the market is good at the moment.

When I open old boxes, I prefer the Cardassian ones, because those Gamma Quadrant Elite doff packs are nice (a couple of the possible doffs are worth a ton of EC, or great to use if you don't want to sell them).

I would stick to Cardassian and Ferengi boxes to be safer on your returns. The Ferengi seem to yield the highest Lobi cap, but the Cardassian seem to yield higher EC items. If you're feeling lucky, you could try the Temporal and hope and pray for MKXII Polarized Disruptor Turrets, as they can fetch a nice chunk of EC.

I would say play it safer and stick with the Ferengi or Cardassian.

Considering the chance of getting a ship is so low, you might as well go with a box that has something you like.
