AoY Lockbox

With Agents of Yesterday less than a month away and being an expansion. Cryptic is likely to launch a new lockbox with the event.
What do you think it will be and/or have in it?

My thought based on how things are run. Another Temporal Box with access to classic phasers and disruptors. ships in the boxes will be the lesser seen ships like Khan's craft or the inter-dimensional saucer.
For the lobi store, faction specific Dreadnaught classes of classic ships. A Dread tri-nacelle Connie style, Similar for a Klingon and Romulan ship.

    Hoping it's a vorgon box myself, as that frees up some other ships I'm expecting and would prefer to see in the c-store.

    well if certain "rumors" are true it's jj trek.. maybe some TOS stuff for the lesser stuff.

    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.

    I'm sure it will be a AR Lockbox which is a shame because I'd rather be able to outright buy those ships :(.​​

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    I'm hoping it's the JJ-verse ships that were referred to in [REDACTED], with JJ-verse uniforms available in the Lobi store for all 3 factions (Nero's romulan crew uniforms, the ID Klingon uniforms (with ridge piercing options), and the AR Trek uniforms).

    I'm also hoping there will be AR weapon boxes with 250 degree cannons.

    I'm also hoping some of the ground weapons used in the AR are available in the lobi store or similarly in weapon boxes.

    Like the phasers used by the Enterprise crew, along with Nero's Debrune Teral'n in the Lobi store, or any of the other romulan swords -- along with Sulu's telescopic katana, or Khan's energy cannons.

    I'm also hoping for Khan's "Superblood" to become a ground trait.

    I also want a trait that lets me attack things in slow motion to the master recording of the Beastie Boys "Sabotage".

    And a special lens flare generator kit module.​​

    an actual TOS lockbox is definitely what I'm hoping for.

    "He shall be my finest warrior, this generic man who was forced upon me.
    Like a badass I shall make him look, and in the furnace of war I shall forge him.
    he shall be of iron will and steely sinew.
    In great armour I shall clad him and with the mightiest weapons he shall be armed.
    He will be untouched by plague or disease; no sickness shall blight him.
    He shall have such tactics, strategies and machines that no foe will best him in battle.
    He is my answer to cryptic logic, he is the Defender of my Romulan Crew.
    He is Tovan Khev... and he shall know no fear."

    Oh bloody hell! I hadn't even thought of costume options (though again the Romulan ones are PU not AR :( ) I NEED those AR Klingon uniforms and ridge piercings! There was some really fantastic design work going on with the Klingons in ID (and the deleted scene from 09), from their weapons, to the costumes, to the makeup and jewellery.​​

    This sadly makes sense. Despite wanting the lens flare generator Iconians mentioned. . .

    Which I'm sure is exactly the plan. Think of all the money STO will make on a T6 Connie in a lockbox. Even a JJTrek one.

    There are a few reasons for no poll.

    One, I do not know how to make one here.

    Two, I would want to make it so it was as fair as possible. So by the time I finished the poll. The box would be out.

    Three, I do not know how to make one here.

    No way. Lens Flare Generator module would be way too OP. What's next, the Michael Bay trait, instant gratuitous explosions of all enemy ships in line of sight?

    No, what you need to fear is someone equipped with the lens flare generator dropping it during a subspace party amplifier moment and killing a planet. ;)

    My money is on (speculation of course) ... Kelvin Timeline lockbox with JJ-verse ships contained within. (And I want both the alt-Constitution-class and Vengeance T-6 ships plus the Klingon D-4. (And assorted uniforms).

    My hope is that none of these are ultra-rare ships.

    I think the JJ box might not be the first box when AoY drops, but the second after that.

    The Ferengi Nandi console is now part of set containing the 'Battle Module 4000' (T5 Marauder console is 3000), which, since the Event ship isn't Ferengi could indicate a second Ferengi lockbox, though I suppose it could be a 'Promotion!' R&D or DOff pack.

    Considering the console that comes with the event ship says "can be equipped on any Vorgon ship" I'm erring on the side of a Vorgon box

    My bet is that we'll get a Vorgon ship reward during some featured episode. Plus, if they're going to do a JJ box this is the perfect time because both Cryptic and Paramount profit due to Beyond coming out. Plus, if they set the lockbox for the end of July it'll kick up hype for both AoY and Beyond.

    I think that was just to include the Battle Module 3000 with the Metaphasic Solar Capacitor so it could be used with the D'Kora Marauder as well as the Nandi.​​

    Which I'm sure is exactly the plan. Think of all the money STO will make on a T6 Connie in a lockbox. Even a JJTrek one.[/quote]

    I have moved on from STO. Then while playing another game everything froze up. I thought it was my computer but I looked out my window and there was a bird just stuck there in the sky not moving. I was just about to start freeking out when out of nowhere a voice poped into my head. T6 connie coming to sto. Then everything went back to normal. So, first thing I did was log into sto and head toward the forums to see if this was true. A few minutes later I end up at the bank to morgage my home. Later I sell my care. Fast forward 2 months and I've bought 25,000 lockboxes and no t6 connie. People start complaining and posting numbers on the forums of how they've spent thousands and no connie (a few cryponians post how they won one on first lockbox opened to calm the massives and give false hope). Minutes later I wake up and relize it was all a dream....or was it. Truth be told. Yeah, I would spend big on a T6 connie. I see this as a last resort by cryptic to save sto. It may happen.
