Like the title says, minor glitch with the IDIC Tribble, but also seems like the sort of thing that might hopefully be a 30 second fix so figured it might be worth mentioning. When I use the tribble, it makes the tribble chirp plus that 'power up' sound effect. The thing is it keeps playing the power-up sound every 20-60 seconds on someone or something in my party at random, including turrets and even mines. Maybe its insecure, needs to constantly remind me that its being helpful?
My understanding of the effect of the tribble is that it effects your party within a given proximity. Chances are your party members (including DOffs) are skirting the edges of the effect's range on you. So it doesn't sound like a bug.
Depending on which profession your character has, when activated, the IDIC Tribble provides the following buffs to you and your team mates:
Tactical: 2.5% Damage Increase
Engineer: 2.5% Damage Resistance
Science: +0.02 Health Regen
In addition to the above buffs, if you have all 3 of the profession-specific ones active on you at the same time, your character will also gain the Full Synergy buff and receive:
