[edit] Overview

Polygeminus grex stahl icon.png
Common icon.png

Tribbles are small, round, furry creatures that players can find as loot or breed in Star Trek Online.

Some Tribbles provide an out-of-combat self heal, while the rarer Tribbles give various types of buffs: Damage, Damage Resistance, and Health Regeneration. Also, various types of tribbles are required for title=Both FactionsAssignment: Tribble Gene Splicing, assignment with a chance to upgrade that tribble to the next tier, in critical success.
There are currently 7 Common, 11 Uncommon, 9 Rare, 10 Very Rare, and 4 Unique tribbles.


[edit] Breeding

Tribbles breed when placed in the same location as any type of food or drink. Any location works, with the exception of your shared Account Bank or the Fleet Bank. It can take up to an hour each time for a Tribble to breed, at which point the new Tribble offspring replaces the food item the parent consumed. This occurs repeatedly until all of the food is depleted.

Tribbles breed once every hour, on the hour, after you've started playing the game.

Tribble breeding is not a random process, but is related to the food Tribbles consume. Higher level foods that provide a larger health boost like [Romulan Ale] will typically yield a higher level Tribble. Right-clicking on the Tribble will reveal the proper genus of the creature (which typically incorporates the names of developers). To prevent a Tribble from breeding, it should be equipped in one of the player's equipment slots with no food present.

[edit] Benefits

Tribbles are available as an equippable item to temporarily boost Hit Points or provide various 60-minute non-stacking buffs — Damage, Damage Resistance, Health Regeneration, or a combination of Damage and one of the other two. Prepared Tribble (tuf), named [Baked Tribble] or [Tribble Kebab] provides a 14,400 sec (4 hours) buff. Tribbles or prepared variations can be also used by your bridge officers while doing ground missions together.

Info If your captain character or one of your bridge officers dies in battle,on ground missions, they'll lose the tribble buff.

Note that in keeping with the first appearance of tribbles in "The Trouble with Tribbles", some Klingon Defense Force species cannot use them. Specifically, activating a tribble with a Klingon, Gorn, or Nausicaan player character or bridge officer will result in the tribble emitting a frightened squeal instead of its normal cooing sound and refusing to give the buff. Orions, Letheans, and aliens can use tribbles normally.

[edit] Availability

The very rare Rivera Tribble is available through certain pre-order offers from various retailers of the game, and also in the C-Store for 120 Cryptic Points; this sub-species offers all three buffs at once.


[edit] Tiers

There are 8 Tiers of Tribbles, ranging from Tier 1 (common Tribbles found as loot) to Tier 8 (rare Tribbles that provide a high-level boost in one of the three buff categories). They are described in more detail in our Tribble Breeding Guide.

[edit] Types of Tribbles

All Tribbles can only be used out of combat. All categories except the first one provide 60-minute buffs to the player (or whoever pets the Tribble).
