One of the little carrots that Star Trek Online
has always given its players is a reward for playing on the test server. Specifically, by playing on the Tribble server, players receive a unique "bonus" tribble for their captain on the live server. The fourth entry in the Path to F2P blog series
promises that players who take part on the test server will once again receive a special ball of fluff to call their own... but there's more on the way.
The special reward tribble will be given to anyone who either reaches level 6 on a character created for the test server or transfers a higher-level character over once the transfers become available. Current subscribers who clock in time on the server will also be eligible for several other small rewards -- nothing spectacular individually, but enough so that players who log in regular testing will feel a bit of an extra bonus. The test server will get the KDF faction opened this week, so Star Trek Online
players will have plenty to test in the name of easily replicating cooing dustbunnies
The fifth Path to F2P blog post
has also gone live this evening with more details on how to rack up these test points and a deeper explanation for why you'd want to do so.
