    The Infinity Lock Box, containing prizes from nearly all previously-retired Lock Boxes, will be available again for an appearance on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. During this time, enemies defeated on both Ground and Space maps will have a small chance of dropping one of these prize-filled packages.

    Either a typo, or PC isn't getting it quite yet.

    Yea... it does look like consoles are getting something before PC on this one.

    If we have the T5-U version already, will there be a way to make it T6? Thank you.

    No. You either buy the new ship or don't.

    If you were lucky enough to have been given the GPL Nagus Marauder a few years ago this has an extra Console Slot as it is Miracle Worker. The Nagus was Intelligence. The Nagus was an Account Unlock, this obviously isn't.

    It has slightly less Hull but slightly more Shield. Beyond the extra Universal Console, this has one less Tactical and one more Science. It has +5 extra Weapon and Shield Power and +5 Inertia.

    This has Lt. Commander Science and Ensign Universal, whereas the Nagus had both those at Lt.

    The Mastery is different as I stated previously.

    They have never did it for any other Tier 5-U ship, so why would they start now?

    At least Madran had a cloak. Such a lost opportunity, a recent patrol mission with a cloaking Ferengi and Quark is left without a cloak to accompany his dagger.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    You should be able to customize it and use a vanity shield...how about Bozeman Titans vanity shield for a golden glare.

    I figured it was coming sooner or later to replace the D'kora. I guess this leaves only the Undine and Hirogen ships to get a T6 revamp. I wonder which one will be the last.

    But will I be able to have it full gold platted like the Nagus dread? I know about the Titans vanity shield its one of my favorite but I really want to have it look like FULL golden (without the black) like a Ferengi ship of this kind has to look.

    So does the name of the original marauder change

    T5 is D'Kora. Original T6 was the Nagus Marauder, this is Quarks Marauder. This is a different Ship than the Nagus. They won't be changing the name.

    While glad some people will be able to get a T6 Marauder (the Nandi is nice, but not a Marauder) it feels a bit low effort to make a new lockbox a reskin of an old ship. Have the normal lockboxes become so meh? Does Cryptic only care about the Promo boxes anymore? That's the feeling I've been getting from how things are going. I've not seen a truly exciting lockbox in while. (Borg one was ok, I guess. I just can't stand asymmetrical ships.) :/

    It's not a new lock box. It's a new ship added to the Infinity lock box:

    New Lockboxes (like Kelvin Divergence or Borg) get new Ships. Infinity Lockboxes get the second to last Lockbox contents added and occasionally get an older T5 Lockbox Ship upgraded to T6 as a 'new' entry. Pretty soon they will have no more of those older T5 Lockbox Ships to Upgrade. After this, only the Undine Nicor and Hirogen Hunter will need the T6 Upgrade. The D'Kora will also be removed from the Infinity T5 Ship Selection Box Prize that can drop from the Infinity.

    What they have been doing lately is not adding new T6 Ships to the Lobi Store with the release of a new Lockbox. They currently have three T5 Ships in that Store that need the T6 Upgrade. The Undine Dromias Bio-Crusier, the Hirogen Apex Heavy Battlecrusier, and the Advanced Obelisk Carrier.

    The Infinity Promotion T6 Selection Box has been getting the better stuff as it is the richer prize vehicle. The only T5 Ship of past Promotions that still needs an upgrade is the Voth Bulwark Dreadnought Crusier.

    A few recent additions to this Promotion, like the Freedom Class Exploration Frigate and Vulcan Experimental Scout Vessel really could have been Lockbox Ships.

    That's the typical way that these releases for T6 versions of old T5 lock box ships go.
    When you see "TRIBBLE" in my posts, it's because I manually typed "TRIBBLE" and censored myself.

    I am confused.. why do we say it's coming to console first?

    This is from the article linked..
    The Infinity Lock Box, containing prizes from nearly all previously-retired Lock Boxes, will be available again for an appearance on PC. During this time, enemies defeated on both Ground and Space maps will have a small chance of dropping one of these prize-filled packages.



    This run of the Infinity Lock Box will feature the addition of the Ferengi Quark Marauder [T6] and the Kelvin Divergence Lockbox contents! Continue reading further on for the full details on these new offerings.

    Where does it say this ship is coming to console first? What am I missing here?

    It did say PS4 and XBox1 originally. They obviously changed it since. Typical proofreading error in News Blog.

    On Twitter, Thomas 'the Cat' said they updated the graphics on this and the D'Kora. He did not mention anything specifically about the Nagus.

    I don't have much hope for the Obelisk and Bulwark getting the T6 treatment. They're kind of oddball outliers.

    That said, I wouldn't mind if they did give the T6 treatment to some of the boobie-prize ships like the Tholian Meshweaver, APU Cruiser, Nihydron Destroyer, Kazon Raider, and Malon Garbage Scow/Battlecruiser. Might even be a good excuse to add things like a Lobi Kazon Carrier or even new/repurposed stuff like Hierarchy vessels and those sleek Octanti ships that don't really deserve their own proper lockbox.

    Most likely, but they didn't say specifically.

    I don't play Ferengi characters myself but many people do and will be happy to have a new T6 choice, especially if they missed the event ship.

    Good for all those wanting a T6 D'kora the bridge itself is special with access to banks/mail and the exchange. But... the dilex just went below 400 expecting an incoming key sale to inflate it back up.
