The Reward better not be another lame tribble. Tribble of Borg was cool for the Easter Egg sound bytes it has, but the rest are Meh. A Doff (or two, or three) would be cool.
Only gamers complain about getting things for free.
Heck, it will probably take most players an hour just to get through the tutorial, so just doing that earns you something free even if you do nothing else.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
