If you're using Arc, then it should launch the launcher. Before you press the Engage button, there should be 3 buttons above the blue patch bar. Holodeck, Tribble, and Redshirt. Click on the Tribble button and the launcher will switch over to the test server. Click on the Engage and you will be on Tribble.
Sadly only Gold and Lifetime members get Tribble Access at the moment. F2P members get Redshirt which has yet to see DR uploaded.
Is that so then how come I am F2P and I have access to Tribble all the time 24/7 as-well as redshirt. I never had a subscription. Always f2p so explain that would you. I hardly understand it all I can figure F2P get access after a certain amount of time I have been playing STO F2P since 2011
i have hurt many people and i am deeply sorry but i hope i you will forgive me and i will try to make it better i am sorry.
