I am excited for the cloaking shuttles and efficient being rolled into lib borg traits, but dont suppose we can have the issue of the overflow bag button not working to bring up the overflow bag until several hours later after you have logged off fixed?

hi, some of my friends recieved free ZEN when they first transfered to tribble, and I was wondering, does everyone get that? If so then I have not gotten any free zen ( which is a shame, I was hoping to try out some ZEN ships to see if they are worth buying on holodeck) and if not...please can you make it so ? (please pardon the pun :D)

thank you

The UI on tribble already is less demanding than the one on holodeck and that will make it even better.It will be awesome in pvp now for those who like to click their powers :D
