For anyone who is interested. As soon as the tribble server comes back up, the test weekend begins. From what I read, if you play on tribble for 1 hour then you'll get a reward on holodeck when they release it.
I am now on tribble and have a go against the starbase which was good fun. It was a challenge enough for me. Where do I see the omega and romulan marks boards? I cannot find any interface to get a feel for what its like. Thanks.
