Just patched Tribble but found after the client loads - at the character select screen - I have what looks like my windows desktop mouse cursor; and although I can move it around, as I mouse over stuff, nothing changes, and I can't select anything on that screen to proceed (I move the mouse over something - Left Click - and nothing.
I am still running under Windows XP (SP3) - fully patched - as the OS on this particular PC; and I also run STO under 'Fullscreen' mode (as opposed to 'Windowed Mode').
[I remember there was a Foundry bug that only occurred in Fullscreen mode; and not in windowed mode - so that's why I mention the above.]
In had to head out to work so I couldn't try more - but figured I'd come and post what I had so far with regard to this current bug.

Win XP here too, and some other person mentioned using this system as well. I wonder if it's related to the issue somehow.
I am starting to suspect this as well (same problem here, and same OS). I do have another computer with Win 7 (it is inferior in other respects, which is why I prefer my XP-computer when the option is open) - perhaps I should try and see if the problem exists there?
(I can also observe that at least once the cursor changed to the game one after alt-tabbing out, then back in - it still didn't work, unfortunately).
As above, but I don't get to the character creation screen. The first thing I encounter on Tribble is the "Adjust your monitor's settings" screen -- the one where you adjust the color of the background against the black, dark grey, and light grey lines of text.
There is no way to select anything, and no way to exit -- other than forcing a process shutdown through the taskmanager. Messy.
I understand the team is examining this; is there a prospective timeline on this, or any progress to report? I'd really love to try out some of the new features being showcased on Tribble at the moment.
