A Lock Box (or Lockbox) is a container which will reward the player with one of several predefined items and some Lobi Crystals. The content of each Lock Box rotates on roughly a quarterly basis. Between releases, the [Current Lock Box] is replaced by an [Infinity Lock Box] which contains past items. See each lock box page for the available items.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The latest box drops as loot during normal gameplay but can only be opened by using a Master Key. Keys are purchasable from the C-store for 125 Zen small icon.png per key, or 1125 Zen small icon.png for 10 keys. The [Current Lock Box] can also be purchased from the exchange, for 200 Refined dilithium icon.png per stack of 20 in the Dilithium Store and as occasional mission rewards. Master keys can also be found traded on the exchange.

Infinity Lock Box[edit | edit source]

The Galor Class Cruiser was the grant prize in the first Lock Box available on PC. In the Infinity Box it has been replaced with a T6 version.

During special promotional events, usually just a few weeks before a new lock box gets introduced, all previous lock boxes used to become available again for a short time. From 28 June 2016 this was replaced by the [Infinity Lock Box] on PC which contains the items of every previous lock box with the exception of the current and immediately preceding lock box. Some previous T5 ships from retired lock boxes have been replaced by T6 counterparts in the Infinity Box. On Console, All Lock Box events were used until the Infinity Box was introduced on 24 July 2016.

Legacy Lock Boxes[edit | edit source]

Rarer versions, known as Gold boxes, also existed:

Opening mystery packages will grant you either a Cardassian or Ferengi Lock Box.

A few Uncommon lock boxes are still available ingame. These will handle exactly the same as their Common counterparts, and most of the time will change their display from Uncommon to Common with such a simple thing as moving them in your inventory.

Lobi Crystals[edit | edit source]

The NX Escort Refit is an example of one of the ships purchased with Lobi from Lock Boxes

Lock Boxes will grant a minimum of 4 Lobi Crystals, and an average of around 5 but occasionally far more. Opening a lock box are the only way to obtain Lobi Crystals and they cannot be traded. Items can be purchased from the Lobi Crystal Consortium and traded on the exchange, but are often character or account bound once unpacked. New Lobi store items are often added alongside new Lock Boxes, and carry over their theme.

Tutorial Mission[edit | edit source]

A tutorial mission called “Unlocking the Box” was introduced with the Ferengi Lock Box which rewards 1x [Hacked Ferengi Lock Box] and 1x [Hacked Master Key].
