Brand new Tribbles Await In The Star Trek Online C-Store
Cryptic Studios just released new player purchasable items in the Star Trek Online C-store that include assimilated & Undine (species 8472) tribbles. Once only known as lovable (unless your a Klingon) pregnant eating machines, tribbles have become an invaluable resource to players during ground missions in Star Trek Online. Depending on the tribble, some provide special perks to players in-game. You can even breed certain types of tribbles in your cargo hold with varying results. Check out this handy dandy flowchart to tribble types & breeding here.
Now the Tribbles of Borg & Fluidic Space Tribble provide specialties that could help when fighting the Borg & enemies using psionics. Read their details below.
Tribbles of Borg
(120 Cryptic Points)
This assimilated Tribble brings elements of the Collective to your inventory. Petting it will slightly stimulate the body's natural ability to resist all types of damage. Additionally, this Tribble has been wired into the Collective and will grant you insight into their vulnerabilities, granting you a small damage bonus to Borg enemies. Note: This option unlocks the Tribble of Borg for all characters on an account. Klingon characters may use the Tribble of Borg.
Fluidic Space Tribble
(120 Cryptic Points)
A few starships sent on missions in fluidic space returned with tribbles infected with Undine cells. One of these tribbles was being transported to Minos Korva for study when the stasis field protecting it failed and the tribble came into contact with a container of quadrotriticale. The offspring of this tribble carry the same Undine cells, and now these "Fluidic Space Tribbles" are being offered to starship captains for field testing. The Undine cells have interacted with the tribble's natural defenses, providing a temporary resistance to psionics for captains or bridge officers. Note: This option unlocks the Fluidic Space Tribble for all characters on an account. Klingon characters may use Fluidic Space Tribbles.
