The details on the box are awesome!

The note on one side of the box explains about the voyages of the starship Enterprise.

The contents of the box look as cool as the outside!

The box’s interior was made to look like the insides of Galileo, one of the shuttlecraft assigned to the USS Enterprise.

Mission Crate 001 is themed “Wolf 359.”

The info card lists the items inside the box with brief descriptions.

Everything in my box! This box commemorates the battle of Wolf 359, post Picard assimilation.

And YES, Tom totally took the photo with the badge upside down. We’re just going to pat him on the head, say nice job honey, and move on!

Resistance is Futile Decal The decal looks great as it features a cool Borg circuitry/cube design. The phrase on this decal was said by Locutus of Borg:

I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile. Your life as it has been is over. From this time forward, you will service us.

You know, in case you forgot the source of one of the most repeated Star Trek lines ever.

Star Trek: Online Code This code can be used to unlock free virtual items on the series’ MMORPG.

The back of the card lists the redemption instructions. Unfortunately you can’t play it on a Mac!  The code reedems the Federation Starter Pack which includes a tier 1 ship, ground and space gear, and an exclusive Loot Crate emote.

Star Trek: Discovery Starfleet Division Badge ($14.95) The badge that you will get from this crate will depend on what Starfleet division you signed up in: Command, Science, Medical, or Operations. I love the slick brushed/polished design!

I love how this badge comes with a powerful magnetic clasp that attaches well to my Starfleet uniform, or shirt rather.

The only odd thing about this is that these aren’t TNG badges, so they don’t quite fit with the theme. That being said, as Discovery is currently showing, they also make sense. I was pumped for it even with the slight deviation from the theme.

Borg Assimilation Tee The perfect shirt for the trekkies! This black shirt features the top view of the Enterprise-D, which lays atop Borg Circuits.

The details on this shirt are awesome, as well as the colors of each design. High quality, too – they don’t overlap, and the shirt is nice and soft.

USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Mini-Master Figure by QMx ($19.95) It’s the starship that serves as the main setting of Star Trek: The Next Generation!

This is my new favorite addition to our spacecraft figure collection.

The figure comes in 3 detachable pieces: the base, the connector stand, and the spacecraft.

The back of the base bears the Star Trek logo and the bottom of the Enterprise is not without full detailing!

The NCC-1701-D is operated by the Starfleet, and the fifth Federation ship that bears the name Enterprise.

Locutus of Borg Mini-Master Figure by QMx ($24.95) The second figure we got this month is Locutus of Borg!

Picard’s assimilation is one of the most drama-filled happenings in all of Trek.

Locutus is actually Jean-Luc Picard, a celebrated Starfleet officer, diplomat and archaeologist.

The bottom of the base is the figure’s name, along with other info about the Qmx figure.

His assimilation paved way for the Borg to acquire the whole of his knowledge and experience, as well as his own personal knowledge. The name “Locutus” is a latin term for “spoken,” exactly what he did for the Borg as he became their speaker.

The details are really on point here and you can see all of his cybernetic implants. The likeness to Patrick Stewart is striking!

The figure stands at 6″ tall and is a 1:12 reproduction. However, it is made of soft plastic, which makes the figure lighter than other figure collectibles.

This figure is impressively detailed with the Borg armor, along with the tubes, cables, and pipes.

He’s also the one who lead the Borg Collective into the Battle of Wolf 359, obliterating 39 starships.

It’s an amazing start for my Star Trek figure collection. I might need to add another shelf to keep this and the upcoming figures from this subscription!

The box shipped late, but at least the items made it worth the wait. The box theme is in honor of the battle of Wolf 359 and Picard fans (that’s all of us, right?) will also probably find this curation awesome, since most of the items have something to do with Picard and Locutus. I feel assimilated by this box, and I’m totally excited that it seems we’ll be receiving a new figure and ship with every box! My only quibble has to be with the Star Trek online code – but I’m happy with the box as a whole.

What do you think of the first Mission Crate?
