The Hirogen are still a ripe candidate as well(unless they're being reserved for a when/if we get a Rommie faction). Not only do they have ship assets already, but they have a lot of neat ground-based gadgets that could be stuffed into a lockbox.

Breen are highly likely though..

Yeah,

I'm thinking it will be the Breen has well.

The Breen would fit in with the current format that Cryptic seems to be using.

1 Lock Box Ship maybe an updated version of the Free Crusier from the Winter Event

1 Lobi store Breen Captiol Ship (Carrier)

1 throw in ship Bleth Choas Fighter

In regard to a Borg lockbox, check this out. Specifically timestamp 8:44, #3, where dstahl says "[8:44] [REDALERT] <Dev> Oaks@dstahl: RE: Borg ships - that could be sometime later this year".

That would seem to support the idea of a Borg lockbox, even if it's not the next one.

The Breen Capitol Ship is already in-game (NPC) and it is a Carrier Class Vessel that launches Chaos Fighters.

This would mean less modeling work for Cryptic so I'm banking on it comming sooner than latter.

Not to mention I love Carriers

Im surprised no one has considered the obvious choice here. We have seen them all over the place specially in STF. Assimilated ships. We currently have the assimilated borg set which comprises of the engines, deflector, and the shields. These graphically alter the look of your ship making it look badass. Now so far we have used the mirror universe as a source to allow ships with different configurations to be given to players. At this moment the borg are still the #1 tough guy in the universe, until the Iconians make their debut, so allowing players to fly borg ships will never happen. So in order to change things around a bit why not replace mirror universe ships with recovered assimilated vessels. Ships altered by the borg and recovered by Starfleet and KDF, too far modified to have all the borg tech removed, but not enough to keep it from being in service.

I think this would add a lot of value to older ships. They could be made to be more superior than their retrofit counterparts for older ships but weaker than their fleet variants, plus they would have borg tech splattered across the entire thing. This fits with the motto of the Omega force, use whatever resources are available to fight the borg. I think this would be the only way we would get "borg" ships. THey could do this either as a lock box, or maybe a tier 6-7 rep for omega force. Add a store unlock for these at some point or maybe once warp cores are introduced you can have assimilated cores that alter basic functions of your ship. So many things can be done, but allowing players to fly borg ships will never happen.

No most people would want a traditional Borg ship or nothing - with the borg set and console you can make any ship look almost completely assimilated - it would be kind of a joke as a lock-box.

Undine or Breen - but we just got a breen ship and just got 2 carriers - so I doubt the breen captial ship which is a carrier will be next in a lock box. The Undine ships are crusier/battleships.

plus the main thing is the Anti-proton weapons as a prize in the pack - lots of people like Anti-proton but they are harder to come by and expensive at the fleet store - lots of people would buy boxes to get them. Especially if it was a hybrid Anti-proton weapon.

the other problem with a cube of sphere is a player would have no idea what direction they are facing, so the whole fore and aft weapon systems goes out the window.
