No formalized Tribble Test Weekend, however the current plan is to provide a new, free Tribble as reward at S8 launch
so does this mean everyone will get the tribble like last time, if so there is not much of an incentive to go on tribble without some reward other then to check out the new stuff but certainly not enough to warrant spending very long there.
It does not bother me too much as I have spent well over the 1hr testing already, I just enjoy seeing what`s new but I can see it bothering a lot of people as it did last time when a lot of players spent well over 1hr testing over the tribble weekend and then you gave the reward to everyone.

Allowed to patch, however still continues to load the patch again, likely patch will not take effect till Nov. 12 otherwise the patch continues to reload itself until the next update or taken out of exit game shut down process.
Pre-patching for Season 8 has been enabled! Upon logging out of Holodeck, the launcher will pop up again and start the pre-patch download.
It seems the Season 8 pre-patching (unlike how this done on, say, STEAM itself: in one foul swoop), is done in many small chunks, delivered each time when you start/leave the launcher. It wasn't clear from your words that this is what is happening.
Well, either that, of the launcher is stuck in a perpetual patch download loop.
I have on-demand patching disabled, so that all content is downloaded, but since the last shard update, everytime I quit the launcher it closes, then re-opens itself, and starts patching 5GB, then closes on its own.
It never did that before.
I did notice the last number on the last shard update was .36 but when the launcher keeps patching, I see a .00
I can't keep sitting here, waiting for 5GB everytime I quit the launcher.
