On top of that, you can't expect them to fix everything in less than a week. :p
pretty much this.

we use tribble test weekends to stress a new build before putting it on Holodeck as it generally provides our network engineers with enough data to analyze odd server or crash behaviors.

It does also increase bug counts, but most of the bugs are already on our punchlist coming from qa.
