I don't however pity them, because stupidity is it's own reward.

Ok Normally a lockbox fan if not for anything bu the MU ships but seriously dissapointed with this lockbox. So on the offchance we get one of the carriers we need the bug ship to use them as fighters. (If I got the bug ship I would not be bothering with the lockbox anyway.) Also the Jem Hadar Mk XII kit will not show the costume option for KDF now at the moment the only character who uses the mKXI jem hadar ground set it my KDF character so if I did buy the lock boxes just to get lobi then it is pointless to upgrade my equipment as I don't get the costume option like my fed would. And finally how it is that the feds get two MU ships and the KDF only one.

This seems a prime example of KDF getting screwed now with lockboxes. The temporal lockbox seems to be the last one I will purchases keys for as the rewards seem to be becoming less and less impressive.

The only thing that would make me want to purchase this would be a MU bridge set for my MU star cruiser

Will i be able to buy Jem Hadar ship with Zen? Why isnt Jem Hadar ultimate reward for geting all Tier V upgrades in starbase? You could have offer it with many other requirements like geting all accolades in all missions and for gameplay time, like to reward those that play and played this game.

And it is probably the one thing I WON'T get, with the few Dominion boxes I plan on opening.

Oh well..., I've still got plenty of Temporal boxes stored away to open for the time being.

I'm still not happy about this as most hard core carrier pilots would be very unlikely to get the Jem Hadar attack ship as that one would be a totally different game play style.

I think you all need to bring back that silly ship for a little while as this combo was out of the blue.

It just seems like a major oversight as carrier pilots(two hangers) don't normally fly escorts or even collect them.

Devs can you please respond to this or what the plans are down the road ....

Unless you have proof to the contrary and a statement from CBS saying they have nothing to do with this then I would agree.

Also the breen ship was not given out for free like oh here everyone a ship, you had to go through hoops to get the ship, and being this is a MMO you have people who glady ran those hoops.

The only thing that really annoys me, is the dominion fighters can only be used on the dominion ships. Although, it makes sense, I don't really want to use a dominion carrier.

the only thing that would make this LockBox really better i think is if they had not used THIS generic NPC Ship as Player Ship

but gave us this one instead:

because the Stuff from TV always sells better...

oh well, at least there is a reason for a third Jem'Hadar lockbox next year
