Hehehe nice homage to the Star Trek 2009 movie with the shrapnel torpedoes, Cryptic.

On the other hand, I'm not a fan of borg/borgified ships, but I soo look forward to blowing these abominations from the skies.

EDIT: Glad to see the Scimitar missing from this combo. I hope this means it's set up to be the Republic's flagship 3-pack.

Well, call me crazy, but this is the second lockbox in a row that I'm most excited about the non-combat pets. I just love the little buggers.

While in related news from Qo'noS.. First City has actually started to float from the butthurt tears. Tsunami warnings have been issued for the Ketha Lowlands. We now return you to Survivor: Bajor already in progress.

I do know why Cryptic planned this out though it was to make as much money as possible off the KDF with the introduction of the +1 consoles. Then they were saving the plasmonic leech as a hail mary when they needed to get an edge on financial quarter we are headed into.

You would be right overall except for the fact that like I said the best KDF console for the worst fed console lol.
KDF will be engaging tons of Fed Romulans with cloaks after tomorrow though. Both sides will need cloak hunters.

Will the Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer appear as a NPC ship again? The ship would work pretty well as a replacement for the "prototype" Borgified Mogai; the I.R.W. Esemar, you encounter during the mission S'harien's Swords.

The last decent console from the KDF side the plasmonic leech although I did get a laugh out of this because the KDF gets the worst console the gas sensor which only works against klingon ships rofl... utterly worthless nice slap in the face cryptic

its not really a rant but this update tomorrow pretty much removes every single uniqueness the KDF has ever had... but you know how it is there was going to be some huge catch to actually getting leveling content 1-20 you have to lose everything...
And you're surprised why ? Cryptic is desperate to keep it's core audience happy, and with this gift they have run out of items to bribe them with. I wish I could care but I see this as a last gasp of a dying game, and only the fanboys will be left in 18 months when Star Citizen launches, wondering where all the other players went.

So, just checking something here. It seems like people are assuming that the two new Borg-ified ships are Romulan only, but I don't see that anywhere in the blog. I assumed that like all of the main prizes before it, these ships would be available to everyone, no matter faction. Am I missing something?

I m not going to lie. i love pretty much everything that is in the lockbox. Money is going to roll in.....

I cannot stand the accolade in it.

PLease please please do not do this. Accolade hunting is a fringe experience as it is. Lockbox rewards with a random chance to drop the required box with a random chance to drop the required pets.... not nice

Although the Tal Shiar's development of Borg-infused technology has been publicly decried as rash and dangerous...
But Fed and KDF using Borg salvage to make their ships incorporate Borg parts is just fine! Here's the conversation I see:

Fed: Hey Romulan, the Tal Shiar is bad and using adapted Borg stuff. Join us instead!
Rom: Ok!
Fed: Now have some armor, ship gear, and personal weapons that we've adapted from Borg technology!
Rom: .......
