    Current ships:

    Promo - https://sto.gamepedia.com/Special_Requisition_Choice_Pack_-_Tier_6_Promotional_Ship_Choice_Pack

    Infinity lock box - https://sto.gamepedia.com/Infinity_Prize_Pack_-_T6_Ship

    That's as of today. New ships are added to the lock box sometime after a new pack is released. A year from now the current zat bash pack ship will be in there.

    Some of the more recent ones have gone straight to the infinity box without getting their own lockbox, but I kinda doubt they'll do any more of those while this campaign is running.

    All in all, I think these rewards cover pretty much every need and I'm really glad to see it.
    The campaign is gonna be long, that's true, but the rewards are worth it, regardless of what you'll end up choosing in the end :D

    It's funny listening to the idiots on ESD argue with each other about which option is the 'best.' The nice thing about this reward, just as you said, is that it has different rewards that will appeal to different types of players. Still, you always have people that insist that the option they plan to pick is the 'best' and everything else is a lesser option. :confounded:

    For my personal needs.. it's going to be Promo Ship or Lobi. Since I have all the Promo ships I really want (MW Connie, MW D7 and Tzen-Tar) I am currently leaning toward that Lobi. I have already changed my mind twice though and the event hasn't even started yet. :lol:

    Reducing this to a SINGLE character on an account....I will be skipping this. They are requiring you to log on more....to get less. No thank you.

    Outside of Mudd's Market Promo and Lockbox ships have ALWAYS been single character ships, so idk why anyone would have expected different.

    Strange, how I have collected event ships for many years past on ALL of my characters, when only completing the event with one.

    Suit yourself, but that's how lobi, lock box and promo pack ships have been for the last decade. You're also ignoring this option: "Two 100% off Coupons for Tier 6 Ships in the Zen Store"

    If I wanted a Zen store ship, I would buy it. I want ships created specifically for the events.

    the promo box would be nice but I simply do not have the time to grind 7 characters for 5 events. maybe I'll grind the 2 KDFs for the D7...

    Its only one box.. per account.. the box is account bound, but it becomes character bound once you open it on one of your chars. you only need to do this event with one char.. the progress is by account.

    These are not event ships, the Event Campaign is a year long thing that you progress through by participating in designated events, I think this is the third time they've done it and each year was a different reward. The first one was a T6 C-Store Coupon, last years was 1k Lobi, and this year is a choice of an Infinity Prize pack, 1.5k Lobi, or 2 T6 C-Store Coupons. The Infinity Prize pack is for one Promobox or Lockbox ship (again, NOT an event ship), and they have always been single character only.
    the promo box would be nice but I simply do not have the time to grind 7 characters for 5 events. maybe I'll grind the 2 KDFs for the D7...

    Event Campaign progress is account wide, so to get multiple copies you would need to be running it on multiple accounts, not just multiple characters.

    Like others have said, event progress is accountwide, so only need to do it on one character. The ship unlock is a single ship, but for the entire account to reclaim. You do not need to do things twice, or seven times, to get two or seven D7 ships. Only once per day, on one character, and all characters get the ship.

    Unfortunately that is not the case. You will NOT be able to claim the ship on multiple characters.

    The way they worded things as linked on first page of this thread, I would agree. However, the current wording on the newsitem makes me believe it is still accountwide unlock, as it should be with these events:

    This ship will be a per character unlock.

    versus

    This ship will be a once per account unlock, for a single ship only.

    Cryptic has point blank stated on the livestreams, and on twitter, that the reward is for ONE character on your account, not for the whole account.

    This is a meta event reward, not a normal event reward. Just like we got ONE free T6 ship token per account, and not one per character on the account, on the first meta events, this ship unlock is for one character, period. The account wide thing doesn't apply to meta event rewards.

    So I can get one of these? Special Requisition Pack – 26th Century Dreadnought Cruiser? With the new fly any ship thingy can a Fed get the Valkis Romulan 26th Century Dreadnought Cruiser? If so how will that work?

    It should give you a chose of which one you want to pick when you open the 26th Century Dreadnought Cruiser box.

    Ayyy Sea, what are you checking ESD chat for? To quote another franchise entirely, "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" :D
    But yeah, there's no "best" reward, just what's best *for you*.

    I'll probably go for Lobi or a Promo - but the Promo will fly out the window the moment they should announce a Legendary D7, if the ship is worth it and the price is fair, of course, because that is account unlock - but I do have fleetmates that have already expressed the will of getting the T6 coupons and, when the time comes, I'll be glad for them!

    As for changing your mind: LOL

    Not agreeing with someone doesn't give you the right to be an TRIBBLE.

    Ci sono tre tipi di giocatori:
    - quelli a cui non va mai bene niente... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.

    If I'm honest, there isn't currently anything in the prize boxes that really interests me. I already have the ships obtainable via prize boxes I wanted and the one ship I'm truly desperate for is one the Devs continue to ignore as they beleive it wouldn't sell.

    Anyway - in terms of what do where chosing a ship at the end of this event is concerned:
    A: Choose a ship I already have on one character for another character who doesn't have that particuar ship. Not my favourite option though.
    B: Pick a ship I'm vaguely curious about but not particuarly interested in - the Vaaudwaur Juggernaught for example.
    or
    C: Do what I did with the DSC Constitution, where I actually won the box that I used for the DSC Constituton on New Year's Day 2019 and immediately popped it in the bank, assuming that when the DSC Constitution did appear it'd be a prize ship; I was proven to be correct in that assumption and opened said box on the day the DSC Constitution was released later that same year.

    So yeah, assuming we'd be able to 'bank' the token I may do that, assuming that nothing is released between now and then that I might be interested in.

    ship or lobi rewards...nice! honestly this allows some thought process on what toon may get a ship, as the box has some neat ones in it. my OS crew may just get the OS flight deck cruiser...but as stated, we shall see what is left inside the box by end of event run.

    for me, i am also looking forward to the flaming sword. this will add to my klink build a lot. :)
    (however, i am confused on the sword. is it an end reward like the ships, or a first event reward - 1 of 5 reward?)

    meh

    It's the reward for the first event, the Voth one, together with the usual 25k of dilithium, plus 3 boxes each containing a choice of either 1 spec point or 1 EUTU.
    This sword will go well with the character I'm currently working on *evil laughter*

    As much as they should make it an account unlock, they probably don't intend it that way, and as usual you can't depend on what is posted as being the precise truth of the matter.

    Per character unlock implies to me the ability to select a different ship for each character. If they want to tell us it only works on one character, they should say, a single character unlock.

    In Cryptic-speak a per character reward is one character, usually not reclaimable. Account-wide is all characters and reclaimable.

    "Event Ships" are account-wide but those are the events of Summer, Winter, Anniversary where you earn the ship in one single event.

    "100% C-Store discount" tokens are account-wide because they let you buy a ship for $0 zen from the zen store, so they are just like other C-Store ships.

    Lock box and Promo box tokens are a per-character unlock, just like when you get them out of a lock box or promo box.

    I will never understand how people can complain about something like this that they're getting for free. Of course we would all love it if the promo or box ship unlocked account wide, who wouldn't. But it's always been one ship. Also when they say infinity ships they mean those from the infinity lockbox pack and the promo packs. They may add others in there between now and the end of the event and they may not. We'll see.

    I for one will not complain about a free promo ship. That being said, I would prefer if you could either get one promo ship account-unlocked or a different promo ship per character. But if the D7 Legendary is good (I swear if it’s another Command Cruiser I will riot) then being able to have an account unlock promo ship is significantly less important to me.

    Considering the Legendary Vor'cha is Command... chance that the D7 might not be. They might do like what they did with the Connies depending on the D7 variant. DSC D7 might be Temporal and TOS D7 might be MW. Or they can do something off the wall and go Intel. Pilot is unlikely as that tends to be smaller ships like Escorts. Personally I wouldn't mind a Command cruiser with decent seating. FAW with Suppression Barrage is a nice combo IMO. But to each their own.

    Assuming they eventually give us Legendary versions of every D7, I would expect it to mirror the Connies. So like you said MW for TOS and Temporal for Disco, plus Intel for the JJ D7.

    I would be entirely surprised if we got the Kelvin Timeline D7 as a legendary ship. You pretty much didn't see it in the movie outside of a blurry computer image during the Kobayashi Maru simulation. And that doesn't qualify as a legendary ship from what Cryptic has said previously on what makes a ship legendary.
