Friendly advice; Never give a definate answer if you're not definately sure it's correct.

Confirmed: Original post was incorrect. You can claim the Tribble on all your eligible characters. The fact that it says "Buy Now" on the features page is a bug. Fortunately, you can't actually buy it, and if you go to the Special Unlocks tab, you can claim it on all your characters after its been purchased.

Actually, the tribble is restricted to Starfleet characters, unlike the other tribbles (Holo and Borg)

This is probably a bug, then.

Updated post to include the word "eligible". The intent of the communication was to state that it did not need to be purchased for each individual character. Per the development team, the standard (non-holo, non-borg) Tribble was designed to be Fed only.

Thank you for your help!

Nah; The original promo was Starfleet got the tribble, Klingons got the Targ pet. They haven't changed the settings, just put a price tag on 'em. Would be nice if that changed tho, but I don't expect it.

And no problem, Destra

Thanks for looking into this, Destra.

Now I have a bound ship on a character that doesn't need it and find its not unlocked for the one who does. That kinda sucks. And yeah, I should have been more careful and generally untrusting but it still leaves a sour taste when I should have been happily flying around in the Enterprise with a spiffy new Catian.
