# 1 The Next Lockbox!
05-16-2013, 09:17 AM
Any guesses as to what the next lockbox will be? Any hints from the devs?

Wild shot in the dark here: Elachi.

Heh, just buy the Recluse and put the borg set on it., the ridiculously large deflector makes it look like the Nerada.



Im more than a little afraid it will be a Romulan/Reman lockbox, with the devs repeatidly stating that romulan ships can still be in lockboxes.

Im also hoping for a cruiser for my new character.

Scimitar in a lockbox.
Ah yes, "Iconians", the immortal demons of air and darkness allegedly waiting in subspace. We have dismissed this claim.

Word is it's the Tal Shiar lockbox - so my money is on Hirogen or Elachi ship as top prize, Mirror Ha'apex, Ha'Nom and Ha'Fex as booby prizes.

To be honest, I hope i'm wrong on the Hirogen. I still think there's scope for them to be written into the Romulan Republic story as potential allies - bearing in mind that, as evidenced by the TV show, not all Hirogen are the hunters we know and love.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Ha'nom, Ha'apax, and Ha'feh are getting added to the Temporal, Dominion, and Tholian drop lists, so that the Romulans will have a ship to pick up when they open them. Or, at least, that's what the notes from Tribble indicate.

I think an Elachi ship is the most likely. Hirogen ships are currently quite boring.

i can say for sure that there is not much scope for the hirogen. as for potential defectors in the ranks, it is a very slim chance of this happening, its been engrained into them since birth and it's all they ever known, which is to hunt for their prey.
T6 Miranda Hero Ship FTW. Been around since Dec 2010 and LTS in Apr 2013.

Considering you've got Jem'hadar (who are genetically programmed to be what they are, as opposed to just societally indoctrinated) joining Starfleet, a Hirogen inclusion arc isn't outside the realm of possibility.

Elachi ships, almost certainly, maybe another mirror ship, but I think they've run out of ones for the Romulans, maybe KDF as well so I don't know what the ship booby prize would be.

As for which ships, I'm betting the escort due to SPOILERS, beta players will know what I mean. And I'd bet that would be the grand prize. Lobi store, maybe the big command double decker ship from the Elachi line. Carriers seem to go into the Lobi store, and that's a carrier in the missions. Even has its own frigate sized pets.

I agree we're not getting Hirogen ships until they make some more unique ships, last I saw, they are still using the generic ships.
