Star Trek: Mission Crate was a bi-monthly (every 2 months) subscription box from  Loot Crate full of goodies from the Star Trek franchise. The box was $39.99 + $5 shipping and costs $49.99 (includes shipping and handling + VAT) per international purchase. The box provides official and exclusive Star Trek collectibles, apparel and more, and you could also select which Starfleet Division you’re in when you sign up – Command, Ops/Engineering, Sciences, or Medical!

The crate was discontinued but they promised to deliver the outstanding crates. Here’s the subscription and shipping update about this crate.

The sticker on the box says that it is a July 2018 box, but it’s actually for 2019.

The box interior also has a Star Trek-inspired drawing.

There are no extra packaging materials in the box.

There’s a card with a QR code that we can use to learn more about this crate. The July 2019 Mission Crate is themed ENTERPRISE.

Everything in my box!

Star Trek Online Mirror of Discovery.

It’s been a wonderful journey.  2018 saw the acclaimed release of Star Trek Online’s 4th major expansion – Victory is Life!  It was here Captains explored the Gamma Quadrant and encountered the Hur’q threat alongside our beloved DS9 characters, voiced by the original actors in the largest cast ever assembled for Star Trek Online.  For the first time, players created Jem’Hadar Captains, battled heroically in one of our most ambitious Battlezones to date and walked the promenade on our faithfully recreated Deep Space Nine station.  We are incredibly proud of Victory is Life and we’re very pleased that so many players enjoyed it.

Alas, time does fly.  The back half of the year found us phaser focused on setting the stage for our Discovery-era expansion.  While not an expansion in the traditional Star Trek Online-sense, we instead wanted to do something a little different and develop this over multiple releases.  Unbelievably, Star Trek: Discovery marks the first time that we’ve operated in lockstep with a live Trek TV show.  This affords us many unique opportunities to evolve our plans based on the direction of the show and input from the players.

Enter 2019.  Our journey advances deeper into the Star Trek: Discovery universe with the forthcoming launch of Mirror of Discovery.  We have many fun surprises planned including a thrilling new story featuring Mary Wiseman as the Terran Empire’s Captain “Killy”, exploration of planet Pahvo, amazing new ships for players to fly, challenging new threats to overcome and a massive expansion of our Endeavors system.

Now is the perfect time for Trek fans everywhere to join us for the voyage ahead.  Let’s find out together what’s beyond the second star to the right.

Take us out!

Enterprise Pin. The enamel pin in the July 2019 box features the Enterprise ship!

It’s well detailed and the colors are really nice! It can be attached to a bag or a jacket, to remind you of their mission “to explore strange, new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before”!

Enterprise Coasters. I also got the same set of coasters from the Loot Crate August 2019 box. They are best to keep cups or mugs in place, and all of the four coasters have the same design featuring USS Enterprise NCC-1701 while the back of each coaster features Loot Crate and Star Trek branding.

Communicator Notebook. In the series, Communicator is a device used for voice communication and as an emergency signaling device, like a transponder. It also allows direct contact between individuals or via a ship’s communication system. The notepad’s cover looks like the real thing and I’m impressed!

The pages includes an image of what’s on the inside of the Communicator. I like this notepad because it’s handy! It’s ideal for quickly jotting down notes and ideas.

Spock Air Freshener. I also got Star Trek-themed air freshener that says…

Live long and prosper.

Here’s Spock making the “Vulcan Salute”! It makes any car smell like delicious vanilla!

Retrofit Enterprise T-Shirt. This is a really nice and bright shirt, with an amazing dorsal view of the U.S.S. Enterprise!

The image almost occupied the whole shirt, and I actually like it!

There’s also the Starfleet insignia printed on one of the sleeves, which is an asymmetrical, arrowhead-shaped pennant.

Enterprise Refit Ship. For the replica ship, I got one of the most recognizable ships in the franchise, The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.

The figure comes in 3 easy-to-assemble pieces. There’s also a clear piece for support that’ll connect the ship to the base and make it look like it’s floating.

The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was a 23rd century Federation Constitution-class starship operated by Starfleet. In the course of her career, the Enterprise became the most celebrated starship of her time.

In her forty years of service and discovery, through upgrades and at least two refits, she took part in numerous first contacts, military engagements, and time-travels. She achieved her most lasting fame from a five-year mission (2265-2270) under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. (Star Trek: The Original SeriesStar Trek: The Motion PictureVOY: “Q2“)

However, the ship got destroyed over the Genesis Planet in 2285, and it is when Kirk activated the ship’s auto-destruct sequence to prevent the Enterprise from falling into the hands of the Klingons.

The main thing that you’ll see on the ship and the distinct feature that sets it apart from other ships is its saucer-shaped primary hull. It also comes with two outset engine nacelles and a cylindrical secondary hull.

Everything in this box is about the Enterprise, one of the coolest vessels in the franchise! I really like the bright yellow shirt, and I don’t mind the print almost occupying the whole shirt. I also love the communicator notebook, it looks like the real one. Though the coasters are dupes, I think it’s okay to have more because they’re useful. Overall, this box is good, and I hope to see the rest of the boxes soon!
