Fluidic and Borg Tribbles should not be available in the C-Store. Unlike the "exclusive" items that we purchase with the game.

This makes us special and gives others a reason to do Tribble Test Weekend. When other players see them they are wow by them.
The tribbles don't make us special in any way. You could also earn them by just hanging around spacedock and spamming instead of testing new content. What makes you "special" is actually testing, giving good and precise feedback and a few other things neither a tribble nor a title can show.

So do I. But again this is something a tribble doesn't show. If someone tests every single patch on Tribble, gives feedback and reports bugs but his internet is down during the test weekend he doesn't get a tribble.

The most important part of testing is giving feedback, keeping bugs off Holodeck and influencing what makes it life in what shape. That already should be enough. And we will still get special tribbles first and for free.
