I like the OPs chart, informative and helpful. I have been using this chart all along as it seems to clear up what is needed to get to what...

From the guys at STO Wikki:

Sell them to the romulans. I heard tribbles are a real delicacy in their imperial captial.

Looking through the various sources, it seems to me that the goal of breeding is to produce a (Tuf), which in turn can be bred up to either a (Mat) or a (Ric). These two are the basis for any of the rarer (non-unique) breeds, yes? (And, incidentally, what you apparently need in order to breed up a Cryo-Tribble using Snow Tubers.)

It also seems to me that a sub-goal is to use the cheapest, most available food possible. I want to buy it or replicate it, not wait for a food item drop.

To get a (Mat), I see the following logical progression (leaving out the lowest tier of tribbles):
Species: Sus/Vit [Heal] -> Tuf [Heal] -> Hen [+Regen] -> Dea [+Regen] -> Mat [+Dmg/+Regen]
Food: (Ferengi Snail Steak) -> (Chateau Picard) -> (Chateau Picard) -> (Saurian Brandy)
To get a (Ric), it looks like this is a logical progression:
Species: Sus/Vit [Heal] -> Tuf [Heal] -> Nix [+Resist] -> Stc [+Resist] -> Ric [+Dmg/+Resist]
Food: (Ferengi Snail Steak) -> (Slug-O-Cola) -> (Vulcan Spice Tea) -> ((Klingon Gladst))
The drawback here is that Gladst is not listed as a vended food item, so I'm forced to wait for a drop or get it on the Exchange if I can.

Does this seem reasonable?
ok, one thing left thats bugging me

my engineering captain has a photonic tribble. i have no idea where it came from, how do i get it, so my other 2 fed toons can get one- or is it an engieering thing?

The Photonic Tribble might be a preorder, vendor-specific, or a special reward, I don't know. Someone more knowledgeable than I will have to shed light on that one.

Not all Tribbles can be bred. The Borg and Fluidic Tribbles, for example, were specific rewards for participating in testing events on the Tribble test server. At least one other tribble species was available by purchasing STO from a particular vendor. I don't remember which one.

# 1745 Photonic Tribble
10-06-2010, 01:32 PM
Photonic Tribble is a reward for referring 1 person to the game who actually went and bought a retail box. You had to send them the referral to get credit for it. Of course a LOT of people went out and bought an extra box for themselves to get referral perks.

The tribbles available through the c-store are:

Rivera (sometimes called golden tribble due to the c-store marketing department)
Tribble of Borg
Fluidic Space Tribble

Cryo tribble is from the Deferi weekly episodes and requires using either a Mattson or Ricosso tribble to eat the Deferi Snow Tubers to be produced. It will only be produced 1 time per character. After that the food gets eaten but no new cryo tribble is produced.

Hope that clears everything up.

As always tribbles breed on the hour mark of your /played time as long as there is 1 tribble and 1 food item in your inventory, bank or utility belt. I've heard they released the breeding restriction from fleet banks but have never tried it and truthfully who's hour mark do they use in the fleet bank anyway if it's true.

There are currently 30 different species of tribble.
4 cannot be bred for, they are:

Rivera (the Best Buy retail box perk now available in the c-store)
Tribble of Borg (testing Season 1 pre-release on the Tribble test server, now in c-store)
Photonic Tribble (referring 1 friend or yourself and they bought a retail box and entered the serial code)
Fluidic Space Tribble (testing Season 2 pre-release on the Tribble test server, now in c-store)

And additionally; you have unlocked the Photonic Tribble for all your toons (one per toon).

Just go to C-Store and grab it from there for free.

I didn't much rate Tribbles when I started playing (closed Beta etc) but now I find myself hording food and am soooo happy that none of the bridge crew can enter Mal's quarters or they'd be horrified. Their stalwart Orion/Vulcan bad tempered Captain is secretly breeding Tribbles.

Thank you so much for the flow chart which makes life so much easier. Now I know what food and drink items to horde and which I can sell with a clear conscience.

Though my Captain still has to close her eyes and wince when she has to give over Romulan Ale to a ball of fluff that probably wouldn't appreciate it as much as she would.

Anyway, thanks for the time and effort you put into this, it's greatly appreciate on my part.

So, you can only breed a tribble in your inventory or bank? What is meant by your power bar? Your 4 inventory slots on your character?
