I think getting noticed on Tribble without a fleet sponsorship will be next to impossible unless the growing movement to balance reviews gains sufficient momentum. Right now, the fleet members are the ones with the name recognition because the number of reviews they get puts them at or near the top of every list. Once you've played an awesome "PlayerX" mission, then most likely you'll play another "PlayerX" mission even if it has no reviews. This will carry itself onto Holodeck and continue in the same fashion with even more dire result as even greater name recognition even greater reviews per mission will be required in order to stand out from the crowd.
This is why I think a movement towards balancing the reviews is something to be started now (as the forums suggest) so that we all have a fair shot at having our content played and reviewed, for good or for bad. Hopefully, the momentum created by this "review balancing" moevement will carry forward to Holodeck and allow for more players to find the Foundry useful and worthy of using (as opposed to just giving up due to fleet monopoly of the Foundry).
Viva la Review Balancing!
(PS, play Where's Maldo Part 1 when the Foundry missions become available again)
