Well, I did it. I ground dilithium for zen, and energy credits, until I'd opened enough Temporal Lock Boxes to get 800 zen. Unfortuanately, what I was trying to get was the Temporal Science Vessel, and that never showed up.
I know I've seen people posting in Chat hoping to trade ships. Should I try doing that, or is it not worth it / considered spamming?
Well, I also have about 6 or 7 mil more in rare items (bunch of isometric charge console boxes, and a point defense console box.) I could probably make 13 mil in a day or two if I sold those and a dozen or so of my purple Doffs.
