Star Trek Mission Crate Review + Coupon – Mission 002: Way of the Warrior
Star Trek Mission Crate is a licensed subscription box by Loot Crate, including original and exclusive collectibles and gear from the Star Trek universe. Each crate contains 4-6 items valued at $65+, and you’ll get to choose your Starfleet Division (Command, Ops/Engineering, Sciences, Medical).
This is the second box, which was delayed in shipment. The original date for this box was March 2018, but we received it in August 2018… a full 5 months late. It appears that Loot Crate is not currently taking new subscribers for this box at the moment, and it’s in waitlist mode, so we’re not sure of the status of the next box just yet.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

My Star Trek Mission Crate Review
This is only our second Star Trek Mission Crate. If you’ve been following along at home, our first box was due in November 2017 and was received in March 2018. This box was originally supposed to be for March 2018, and we received it in August! 😱 So instead of getting boxes every 2 months, we’re getting them about every 5 months at this point.
Mission 002 is Way of the Warrior, named after a pretty popular and memorable episode of DS9 featuring the Klingons– including perennial fan-favorite, Starfleet Lieutenant Worf.
Lt Commander Worf Mini Master Figurine – Retail Value $24.95
This is definitely the centerpiece of the box. Standing at 8″ tall from base to the top of his weapon, Worf is at the ready with Bat’leth poised to do some damage.
The figure in our first box had a bit of damage, so I was happy to see this one arrived unscathed. The detail in these figures from Qm is pretty great, with lots of texture and a good likeness overall. The Bat’leth is packaged separately so you can fit it into his hands yourself.
Mirror Universe Tribble – Retail Value $9.95
I’m wondering if this is the item that held up the shipping of this box since the QMx website says “shipping in late August.” (Maybe they should have just bought some from Hot Topic?)
The teeth actually caught me by surprise a bit! Apparently, mirror universe Tribbles love Klingons instead of hate them. I must not have a great memory of the episode these toothy little creatures are featured in, though.
Klingon Socks – Estimated Value $10
These socks are actually pretty nice for heading into fall; I’d probably not have liked them so much if I got them back in March. 😉
They’re tall and pretty plush for licensed gear. My feet are on the small side so I’ll probably pass these on to my husband; he wears his other pair of Star Trek socks from Loot Crate pretty frequently.
Klingon Emblem Badge – Retail Value $14.95
These badges from QMx are definitely great quality. They have a super sturdy magnetic fastener that really stays in place and is comfortable against the skin, too. This one is about 2″ x 2.25″.
This sticker is about 3.25″ tall and features the Klingon emblem in a sort of aged, rugged finish. I’m not a big sticker person, so frankly I never know what to do with these. Any ideas for clever places to stick this?
Star Trek Discovery Lapel Pin – Retail Value $4.95
We received a Star Trek Discovery badge in the last box, so this inclusion is a bit of a puzzler. I like the smaller size to be honest because I’m more likely to pin something like this on to my actual blazer lapel or a tote bag. It’s just under 1.5″.
This feels kinda like a sponsored freebie since the info card mentions that season 2 of Star Trek Discovery will be on CBS All Access next year. I still haven’t watched any episodes of Discovery. (We’re currently binging on Enterprise, which I’d never seen before and am loving! Aside from that theme song, anyway.)
As with the previous box, we also received a code for Star Trek Online. The game is free to play, but the included code will get you a “Klingon Defense Force Starter Pack” which includes a Bird-of-Prey Starship, ground and space gear, and exclusive Loot Crate emote, and more. The game is PC only, so I won’t be able to check it out anytime soon… but I’m curious to hear from anyone who has!
Verdict: Anyone who has been curious about this box already knows about how delayed Loot Crate has been lately; this box, in particular, has never shipped on time since it launched. It’s hard to talk about the actual contents since the delays are such a big hurdle and really influence how I feel about the box as a whole.
Value-wise, if you’re a dedicated Star Trek collector and are willing to wait for all the lateness, there are still some trade-offs. The retail value is $64.80 total or about $20 over the total price you pay for the box. Ignoring other factors, that’s not bad. BUT… none of the items included this month are exclusive to the box. And although Loot Crate has you choose your division at sign-up, this box definitely did not have any division-specific items. I have to say I expected something a bit more unique from this box, especially after waiting for so long.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No; this subscription is currently in waitlist.
Value Breakdown: For the $44.99 total price of this box ($39.99 + $5 shipping), here’s what you would have paid approximately for each item:

- Mirror Universe Tribble – $6.90
- Klingon Socks – $6.95
