Preorder Star Trek Online And Get A Tribble

image

The plethora of preorder goodies available for Star Trek Online are downright impressive and makes you wish you could preorder from more than one source. Well, I suppose you could...

Even if you are only vaguely considering playing Star Trek Online, then there's absolutely no reason not to preorder. First off, you will be able to participate in the open beta between January 12th and January 26th. In addition, you will be able to start a whole weekend before (January 29th) the game officially "launches" (February 2nd) with the Early Start program and be able to carry over experience and equipment. Then, depending on where you preorder from, you will be able to get some freaking Trek-ilicious in-game items.

Here's the list of possible in-game bonuses for preordering Star Trek Online:

A pet Tribble (Federation)
A violent and destructive beast called a Targ (Klingons like crazy pets)
An auxiliary Starfleet Shuttle
A 'Liberated Borg' Bridge Officer to help you on your missions
A Constitution Class Ship (which looks like NCC-1701 or the original Enterprise for you newbs)
A TR-116 rifle which teleports bullets around corners
Joined Trill (exclusive racial abilities)
Multi-Spatial Personal Shield
Chromodynamic Armor
Additional Skill Points (lame, but deserves mentioning)
"KHAAAN!" Emote
Klingon Blood Wine Toast Emote
Unique Registry Prefix (NX-)
Costumes from both DS9 and TOS
Red Matter Capacitor (a nod to the new movie?)

The items are available at different retailers depending on what country you order from. More specific information on what item is available from what website can found at Cryptic's site.

Come on, a tribble? That's awesome.

i understood about 1 of those words(edit: that was lie), but yey for trekkies, i was hoping that a tribble was just a misspelled triple and when preordering the game you would get 2 free copies.

For a second there i thought you meant an actual Tribble and i was really happy because i always wanted one but then realised how foolish i was being XD
And i'm still unsure whether or not to buy it. I'm on a tight budget right now.

The trouble with Tribbles is that they almost make me want to start playing a second MMO.

I want a borg. I need this game.

I'm getting the one from amazon (borg officer), it was down to that or getting the dde for the joined trill but I decided though the game seems good it's not 'pay extra money' good. That shoot around corners rifles might be nice too but in the end with not so many away missions I'll go with the borg.

I wouldnt mine teh trill!

I would've ordered it already... but no way I'm paying a monthly fee.

A pet Tribble (Federation)

does it cause an entire tv-episode worth of trouble? :D

You can buy a Tribble on Thinkgeek, I think. :P

Eh, I was never extremely interested in Star Trek, but this game looks interesting enough that I might try it. I feel like I'll miss out a lot if I haven't seen the shows/movies first, though. Plus I can't afford monthly subscriptions.

I hope I wont have trouble with it. LOL

Does that include Dax's miniskirt from Trials and Tribble-ations?

Just asking...no reason...

Baw...

Here I was hoping that the game came with a plush tribble, not some in-game pet.

Want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want!

Man, I wish they'd release the pricing system that they're going to be using, and how much it'll be. I'm going crazy wanting to play Star Trek. It doesn't help that I read this after just watching the latest movie.

I'd love to have the Liberated Borg Officer (7 of 9 anyone?), and the Joined Trill ounds cool, and does the Multi-Spatial Personal Shield (especially if you like grinding on your own).

Well, seeings as they were standard issue in TOS, I cannot see why not.

Wow, the game hasn't even launched and it's already fucking over balance in favor of cash.

...Good god this has to be a record. Most games wait till they launch at least... And most of those are f2p.

I dunno. The Trill were always such an interesting race. And not because the chick from DS9 was hot.

Having looked at the ship list, I just want this game because it has my beloved Prometheus-class. I'm a happy nerd.

OMG THE TR-116! I remember that episode of DS9! I FREAKIN LOVED IT.

I don't know about Dax's miniskirt, but rumour has it the infamous "maleskirts" from TNG will be making an appearance.

Hey, if we can have a Klingon security officer, then there's no reason why we can't have a Transylvanian Red Shirt Skirt.

Khaaaaan! Awesome! You can't get better then that

I'm interested. But I really feel like the game will be shit.

I'd jump on this except I'm not a fan of MMOs and I esp. hate the idea of a monthly fee.

I'm not sure why I'm actually interested in this game. Maybe it's the holdover from all the fun I had in EVE making my own ships and tooling around in them. Getting my own Federation ship, my own bridge crew, getting to say "fire phasers"... I was never a huge fan of the Star Trek lineup (I did like The Next Generation, but that's because the show kicked ass) but there's something here that tugs at the five-year-old version of me who wanted to be an astronaut.

tribbles? oh FUCK no! Keep them away from me!

Awww, why must you tempt me further? I'm so ass broke I can't afford it. I'MMA GO CRY NOW! *SOB*

But on a serious note... If I had the money I'd pre-order it. Or a computer that could run it...

www.thenewfederation.com if any escapist fans wants to join a clan for STO :) we have a TS3 and are planning on being an organized group in the beta.

it would have been better if you got a real life stuffed tribble instead of the online pet version

This will be AWESOME

Champions online has got star trek skins now ?

hmmmm sounds like a weird amount of stuff, and cool..

Ok, I swore off MMO's, but bloody hell I want this now. =(

I'm going for the Khan-emote.

Nothing beats it!

Man that is tempting. I'm not an MMO guy as I don't have the time(The TV doesn't watch itself you know), but I love Star trek, and these seem like some cool bonuses. Out of these I most like the sound of the unique registry, the borg, and KHAAAAN!!

Agreed.
