Star Trek Online: Infinity Lock Box
By LaughingTrendy Tue 28 Jun 2016 09:30:00 AM PDT



We are excited to announce a complete overhaul of our existing “All Lock Box Drop” Event, with the introduction of a new method of obtaining prizes from retired Lock Boxes: The Infinity Lock Box

Beginning with the upcoming event, players will no longer find old lock boxes being rewarded by missions and defeating enemies, but will instead be occasionally rewarded with Infinity Lock Boxes. These boxes, just like all previous lock boxes, require a Master Key to open. However, the contents will include prizes from nearly all retired boxes in a single, massive prize table!

In order to help ensure that this massive number of prizes doesn’t place your desired prize too far out of reach, we are introducing an element of choice into the Infinity Lock Box. Most prize entries will reward the key-user with an Infinity Prize Pack for whichever prize entry they won. Infinity Prize Packs are bound to the person that won them, but offer an unrestricted choice as to which item they wish to have won. Once that choice is made, the item(s) rewarded will be unbound, and can be freely traded/sold/gifted to other players.

EXAMPLE:
You may win an item named “Infinity Prize Pack: T6 Starship” which will be bound to the character that won it. Upon using/activating this package, you will be presented with a choice that includes all previously offered T6 Starships: Benthan Assault Cruiser, Vaadwaur Manasa Assault Escort, Krenim Imperium Warship, etc.

Choosing any of those entries will reward you with a packed-up version of the chosen ship, which can then be kept and opened for yourself, or freely traded/sold/gifted to other players.

The Infinity Lock Box will only be available for a limited time! However, each time it returns it will be updated with additional prizes from more recently-retired Lock Boxes, offering even greater variety and choice of prizes to be won.

The table below shows which prize entries will grant choices via an Infinity Prize Pack, and which will reward random (non-bound) prizes directly into your inventory.

Q&A

Q: Will existing Lock Boxes be updated? Can they still be obtained?
A: No. The contents of existing retired Lock Boxes will not be updated to reflect these changes, and we will no longer allow retired Lock Boxes to be acquired in-game.

Q: When new prizes are added, will existing Infinity Prize Packs be updated?
A: Yes. But they are only updated once when each Infinity Event begins anew. Prizes offered within the Infinity Lock Box will also not include the most recently retired Lock Box – addition of those prizes will be delayed for some time.
