well fracking thanks, i claimed it. couldnt equip it (level 50) so i discharged it thinking it was bugged so now i cant claim it again at all on this char? i did all this before this "annoucement" what the hell am i supposed to do? what about the other people who have run into this issue?
It cant be equipped in space. only on the ground.
the reason it can only be claimed once is that it awards FM, so people could discharge and reclaim endlessly resetting it.
write a ticket and explain the situation. perhaps they can send you a new one.
IMPORTANT NOTES: If you discharge the "Ang the Vicious" Duty Officer or Fleet Tribble, you will not be able to re-claim it on that character. The Fleet Tribble requires Federation captains to be level 2+, and Klingon captains to be level 21+, before it can be claimed.
Being unable to reclaim the fleet tribble is exactly unlike all other testing tribble rewards. Further, it is unlike all other tribbles in that we cannot slot them on our bridge officers to hold because we do not want them to eat our food in our bank and inventory.
I believe you are not able to slot them on your BOFFs because it provides Fleet Marks when pet, and you can only have 1 per hour. I believe the Dilithium Tribble works in the same manner.
As for Ang being purple and not orange, I've asked the team to investigate.
If you've accidently discharged the Tribble, please file a GM ticket They'll be able to look into it.

Right, but did you check the Retrieve tab in your Inventory? To my knowledge that's where discarded/sold items go until we change maps. Your tribble might be there (assuming you're still logged in and haven't zoned anywhere).
the retrieve tab was empty when i did it.
they posted the notes about it being one per char after i had already deleted it thinking it was a bug.
