Star Trek Online starts selling puppy lockboxes

Quick, someone call the animal humane society because Star Trek Online is cramming innocent puppies into airtight boxes!

This puppy abuse is part of STO’s new Krenim lockboxes, which will be coming for your wallet when Season 10.5 launches on Thursday. Players have a shot at finding one of five beagle puppy vanity pets in the boxes, in addition to more high-tech prizes such as a tier 6 Krenim Imperial Warship, a Zahl Heavy Cruiser, and new temporal specialist duty officers. But really, it’s all about the puppies.

Cryptic said that it’s making some changes with these lockboxes to enhance players sense of “value” when opening them. This means that there will be fewer crappy prizes and beefed-up versions of lower-tier goods.

ZenDadaist I guess it’s supposed to be the puppy beagle from Captain Archer from Enterprise, Porthos I believe he was called. Just like how the previous lockbox held cats, based on Data’s cat Spot.

rogerstim37 I wonder if the more RP-oriented Klingon players are pitching fits at this news, since there’s no targs to go with the puppies. :-)

“Cryptic said that it’s making some changes with these lockboxes to enhance players sense of ‘value’ when opening them.” 
A recent Cryptic staff meeting…

Boss: “Okay people, listen up.  Most of the players have finally figured out that the lockboxes are a scam.  Revenue is way down.  We need to find a way to con them into buying them again, or we’ll have to start laying people off.”
Middling-Bright Employee:  “How about a brightly colored distraction?  Something to take their minds off the pain.  You know, like giving an abused kid a puppy to shut him up?”
Exceptionally Stupid And Literal Employee:  “Hrm…”

It’s not April 1st…

OK Cryptic have officially run out of ideas. It’s not even an attempt at nifty ships any more. Puppy lockboxes? Really?
