The Tribble Test Server
What is Tribble?
It’s not the cute fluffy thing you stroke in game to get a buff but it is far more useful. Tribble is the name of the test server in Star Trek Online. On the test server you can test away to your heart’s content at no cost to you. Need to check a build with a respec? Don’t spend your respec token on holodeck before testing on tribble first unless you are sure you know what you’re doing.
How do I access Tribble?
Well the first thing you have to do is copy a character over from holodeck to tribble unless you want to start from scratch. To do that follow this LINK and then come back here.
Now when you launch the game you will see the option at the bottom left of the launcher to choose Tribble, Redshirt or Holodeck. Simply choose Tribble and after the game has been patched to your computer you can engage.
Is my holodeck character affected?
No, it’s a copy and nothing you do on tribble affects holodeck, it’s a separate shard/server. This also means you cannot transfer any items or currency from Tribble to Holodeck
This is a big download, what’s going on?
Well tribble is basically another copy of STO on your computer so make sure you have enough disk space. The entire download is around 16Gb at present.
That’s about it folks, enjoy.
