Star Trek Mission Crate 3 Unboxing / Review “Dark Frontier”

Here it is, the next chapter in the long arduous epic that is waiting for my 6 Star Trek Mission Crates to show up. I’ve spoken on the past few crate reviews about the situation – Loot Crate is having issues, and appears to be slightly unable to handle the sheer amount of crates they are currently selling. I should be holding 7 or so bi-monthly crates, but have only received three at this time – each one seemingly taking longer and longer to arrive.

November turned into January 1st

A few weeks prior to receiving this, I learned that Loot Crate had shipped a big box of random stuff to people who had subscribed to a similar Firefly themed Crate – a fact that made me assume I was about to have a ton of useless stuff I did not want. I was prepared to call and demand a refund of the further items, but alas I did not have to as a pretty solid crate arrived. Was it worth the wait – probably not, but it looks like Loot Crate really tried to keep people happy.

The theme of this box was “Dark Frontier”, which was an episode of Star Trek Voyager.

“Members of the Voyager crew train on the holodeck for a raid on a Borg ship. Should they be successful, they will steal the Borg trans-warp coil in hopes of integrating the technology into Voyager’s systems. The Borg seem to be one step ahead when the Borg Queen communicates with Seven of Nine.”

Obligatory Star Trek Online Items

I wish this wasn’t just PC exclusive, as a PS4 player, these make me sad.


Captain Proton T shirt

Pretty fun Item, that I plan to rock at Comicon this year – for those unaware how this relates to Star Trek, check this out:

“Captain Proton was the protagonist of the holographic novel The Adventures of Captain Proton, a story created by USS Voyager crewmember Tom Paris. In the story, Proton’s sidekick is called Buster Kincaid, played by Harry Kim on a number of occasions, and his secretary is named Constance Goodheart. He fought against the “evil forces” of Doctor Chaotica and Queen Arachnia.”

Voyager Badge

I have slowly been decorating one of my bathrooms with Trek items, and these badges have been a big hit.


Seven of Nine Master Series Figure

I love these figures so much, this looks cool next to Commander Worf


Seven of Nine Beach Towel

Awesome addition to my Trek Bathroom as well, it’s a tad thin, but it does the job.


The Verdict: As I stated above, this was not worth the wait, but what I did get was pretty awesome! LOVE the shirt, figure and the towel and the badges are always solid. Of the three boxes I reviewed these past few days, this is easily the best. I just hope I don’t have to wait for July to review the next one.

Star Trek Mission Crate 002: Way of the Warrior

I spoke at some length during my review of the last WWE Slam Crate about the possible financial woes that Loot Crate might be facing and the annoyance that fans of Star Trek have been put through for this year. Because of that, I won’t harp on it again, and will concentrate on the positive fact that MY CRATE IS FINALLY HERRRRE! Ahem, now the question is – was it worth the wait?

They say “the only people who can really handle the Klingons are the Klingons,” so when a Klingon fleet arrives at Deep Space Nine, LT. Commander Worf is brought in to learn their true motives. What he discovers leads to the start of the Federation / Klingon War.

The Box

Last time, everything came in a nifty box that resembled a Next Generation Shuttle Craft, while cool this served little purpose aside from making a very cool piece of trash that I threw out since I don’t hoard random packing materials no matter how awesome they might be. This time around Looters? (Craters? not sure what the nickname is) have a more simple branded box that looks pretty slick. This blue and red branding is on most of the items in the box and may be the “packaging issues” that caused the delays that we heard about.


Spoiler Card

Typical spoiler card that looks like those iPads that everyone had in Star Trek TNG.


Lt. Commander Worf Mini Master

This figure is awesome! this is beyond the best part of the box immediately from just glancing outside. while it’s plastic, this is more the quality of some sort of expensive imported figure rather than a simple Walmart action figure. If these Mini Masters keep being in the box, I’m all for this crate!


Mirror Universe Tribble

Simple “plushie” showing a mirror universe (evil) version of everyones favorite annoying alien.


Klingon Socks

Can’t say too much about socks, but they look comfy – I’ll have to pick a day when I wear my Worf shirt and toss these on.


Klingon Emblem Badge

20180816_004159

Last time we got a bridge crew Federation badge, this is a nice compliment.


Klingon Sticker

20180816_004217

Once I eventually get a different car, I might have to toss this onto it.


Star Trek Discovery Lapel Pin20180816_004143

Standard lapel pin similar to the badge last time.


Star Trek Online: Klingon Defense Force Starter Pack (PC Code)

20180816_004230

I don’t have this game for PC, but I have plenty of friends that play, so I always pass these on.


All-in-all good box, not sure it lived up to the insane wait we all had to suffer, but I’m glad to finally have it. With no shirt this time, the best item is easily the Worf statue, which is now predominant placed in my Star Trek themed guest bathroom.

Here’s hoping we don’t wait another five months for box 3. I’ll keep everyone posted lol!
