To be honest, that doesn't seem very useful for the majority of people who are likely to help test on Tribble. I would imagine most of those people already have at least one character at level cap, if not more. On the Fed side, it doesn't really take all that long to hit level cap anyway, especially with the XP boost in the Borg DSEs and the 15-minute XP boost item you get for completing the Borg Invasion Daily. I suppose if it's not Bind On Pick-Up, that might make it a little more useful (mail it to your KDF toon?).

(Also, still hoping we can get an RSS feed for these Path to F2P posts.)

Sooo, the rewards are

- 1 thing that can be bought (out and in game)

- 1 thing that anyone can earn

- 2 things that take forever and a character that stays on Tribble

Seriously, STO dropped like 3 points in quality in a month :( 3/10

Well, I think the new episodic layout of the missions and the fact that they scale to your level is fantastic.

Nice to see the rewards are being listed. While they aren't crazy awesome I still think they are pretty decent.

I'm just going to assume the Ship slot is an account wide unlock. So please feel free to crush my hopes if you desire.

Also that's good to know that playing a KDF toon gets you a second set of rewards. I'm looking forward to earning those as well.

The new mission box looks cool, and I did hate having to "talk" to so many NPCs to get just a simple mission. I can imagine the casual players found it even harder to use then us here on the forums. Guessing by the screen shot I'm going to guess that took you a few months to setup up.
