  • With that in mind, some of the high-tier rewards that won't be obtainable on Holodeck for several weeks may require polish.
    • There may be some bugs and placeholder animations or FX.
  • Season 7 Test Items:
    • Players may now visit a contact on DS9 that will allow them to purchase many different items that would otherwise require high tiers of Reputations in order to obtain.
    • Several store inventories are available, and include old and new Omega and Romulan Space Sets, Omega Ground Sets, and all of the newly-introduced unique items associated with each of these Reputations.
    • There is also a TEST ITEM inventory which includes Consoles for space and Armors for ground that will grant players the powers associated with the Reputation Trees.
      • Different variants are available, and each contains different powers.
  • This vendor is only going to be available for a limited amount of time.

This is a great idea, but it is way, way too late.

Instead of putting this up on tribble, so you guys could tweak the Rep powers before it hits live.

It hit live, people made it all the way to T4 - got passive powers and then shortly after that the T4 Omega power got "adjusted" leaving many of your players confused and upset.

Now they have a power that has been nerfed, in a system with no clear respecs and no one is answering their questions on why this happened and why no respec has been provided.

Then, after that, you add the ability to test these powers on the tribble server.
