Both this mission and It's Q's Party are now unavailable for both Klingon and Federation Officers, even if you still have the mission you may not claim any rewards.

Federation[edit | edit source]

It appears that you have come seeking gifts to celebrate this joyous anniversary event.

Far be it from me to be the party pooper. Tell you what ... you know that lovely new fountain I've installed in front of Admiral Quinn's office? Do me a favor and enjoy yourself; go and play in the fountain and I'll give you a gift.

Enjoy your presents and remember to say, "thank you".

This reward may be claimed daily.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Fountain / Tribble pile offered the following items;
A small number of players report receiving the Tribble of Borg, Fluidic Space Tribble, and Tribble (phot).
  • Ground/space weapons and components ranging from Mk 1 Uncommon to Mk XI Very Rare, often with bonus combinations not available from vendors or crafting.
  • During the event it was possible to get some C-Store items such as;

Controversy[edit | edit source]

The fountain / tribble pile caused some controversy as it used a shared loot pool, meaning that when multiple players interacted at once, they were shown the same items. The first player to accept the items shown received them, while subsequent accepts would received different items to those shown.

When it became apparent that players could click cancel on the items shown and 'roll' again, players would often do so until a desirable set of items were offered.

Some players created additional characters to farm the fountain and tribble pile.

A small number of players attempted to use the Breen Biothermal Dampener to try and interrupt other players interactions with the fountain / tribble pile, preventing them from accepting items. While the dampener didn't directly interrupt a players interaction, the visual effects of the dampener applied to a large number of characters in close proximity would cause hardware performance issues for players leading to reduced framerates, increased network latency, disconnections, and in some cases cause the game client to crash. It was also used by griefers for the same purpose.
