Some players could never show up over the Tribble Test Weekend because they simply don't have the hard drive space to afford another 10GB installation of STO, not to mention the whole updater thing often involve large files whom wreak havoc on the limited bandwidths of some users.

It's not that they didn't want to be there, it's that they couldn't. They did not participate in the testing and were unable to help contribute to the advancement of the game... but using the C-Store, they'll still be able to obtain those Tribbles they missed out on, and their C-Points/spent dollars will also contribute to the betterment of the game as well.

For that crowd, I think the inclusion of the tribbles on the C-Store ends up being a nice gesture. Those whom participated on Tribble still end up with having had thiers effectively given out free, even though they can no longer use them as bragging rights (you have titles for that, though).
