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 ....
This is what bothers me the most, it seems like very odd logic was at play in deciding to link the two.

Eh I think possibly they should make it a LTS or subscriber perk to be able to get the very rare pet as long as you own the heavy escort or the dreadnought. Having to own something from two different kind of ships doesn't bode well with me or most of these posts I've been seeing so they need to make some compromise on it because for everyone who posts in forums there's 100's more that won't even bother with doing this lockbox.

If i read between lines correctly Heavy Escort is going to look something like this:

6x tac consoles
3x engineer consoles
1x sci consoles

And maybe for the first time 2x commander tactical boff seats.

(PvP balance yeah lol P2W all the way)

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
Is that from a game? They made it pretty clear a few weeks ago that their license only covers the TV shows, movies and some novels; if you are waiting for things from other games, you will be waiting forever.

I'd rather have a Star Trek game that took it's PvP community and the effects that their Pay-to-Win garbage has on it seriously.

I'd rather have a Star Trek game where the players actions and teamwork created the dynamic instability instead of whatever universally decried OP ship or the latest exploitable, overreaching skill brought to it.

But if that's ennui to you - by all means enjoy your PvE.

Could be as early as tomorrow - the temporal box was announced on Monday, had the ship info post on Tuesday, and was released on Thursday, all in the same week. The fact that this was announced on Tuesday may mean it comes out next week, though.

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.

Cryptic stated that CBS want the non faction ships to be rare as they do not want them to out number federation ships. That went out the window when you could get the Breen ship quite easily, and in turn, they quite regularly out number the ships seen ingame at a given time.

I have no problem with the hoops you had to go through in getting said Breen ship, that is part of the MMO experience. I myself have one.
The problem is selling the ships for $150+ when they could be earned ingame in a similar way.
If they must earn money from them, then put them in the cstore along with the other ships, but make them per character only.

The ship has sailed on the non faction ships having to be rare, and therefore lockboxes need not exist.....

(just to probably add to the many concerned posts here...) Why per character? As an Engineer I have no interest in a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship. And as a Tactical I have no interest in a Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier. But I have different characters in both classes that I want one ship for each.

Any chance for this to be done per account?

[EDIT] To give it a different perspective, you can't expect me to acquire the single most expensive item in the whole game to get access to pets that will just not perform as good as full-fledged ships because 1) they're pets and 2) they're not player controlled. If that ends up being the case, specially if these ships take one of the two hangar bays (and not add a third one), I'll pretty much stick to common pets and save my money. On the other hand, if the whole thing was done per account, I'd make an effort to buy the Attack Ship on my Tac character (who still doesn't have it), thus spending money.
