Some Tribbles provide an out-of-combat self heal, while the rarer Tribbles give various types of buffs: Damage, Damage Resistance, and Health Regeneration. Also, various types of tribbles are required for “Tribble Gene Splicing”, an assignment with a chance to upgrade that tribble to the next tier in critical success.
There are currently 7, 11 , 9 , 10 , and 8 tribbles.
- Main article: Tribble Breeding Guide
Tribbles breed when placed in the same location with any type of food or drink. Any location works, with the exception of your shared Account Bank or the Fleet bank. It can take up to an hour each time for a Tribble to reproduce, at which point the new Tribble offspring replaces the food item the parent consumed. This occurs repeatedly until all of the food is depleted.
- Tribbles breed once every hour, on the hour, after you've started playing the game.
Tribble breeding is not a random process, but is related to the food Tribbles consume. Higher level foods (common, uncommon, rare, etc.) that provide a larger health boost like [Romulan Ale] will typically yield a higher level Tribble. Right-clicking on the Tribble will reveal the proper genus of the creature (which typically incorporates the names of developers). To prevent a Tribble from breeding, it should be equipped in one of the player's equipment slots with no food present.
Tribbles are available as an equippable item for your character as well as your Bridge Officers to temporarily boost Hit Points or provide various 60-minute non-stacking buffs — Damage, Damage Resistance, Health Regeneration, or a combination of Damage and one of the other two. If your captain character or one of your bridge officers dies during ground combat, they lose the tribble buff.
Klingon Empire characters
While Orions, Letheans, and Aliens can use all tribbles normally, common as well as uncommon (i.e., "non-special") tribbles do not apply any buffs to Klingon, Gorn, and Nausicaan players and bridge officers when used (they just emit a squeaking, displeased sound). As a compensation, all characters of the Klingon Empire can prepare [Tribble/tuffli] to produce [Baked Tribble] and [Tribble Kebab], which both provide a 4 hours buff. Furthermore, KDF captains can hand in [Tribble Carcass]es to earn gold-pressed latinum .

There are 8 Tiers of Tribbles, ranging from Tier 1 (common Tribbles found as loot) to Tier 8 (rare Tribbles that provide a high-level boost in one of the three buff categories). They are described in more detail in our Tribble Breeding Guide.
Types of Tribbles
All Tribbles can only be used out of combat. All categories except the first one provide 60-minute buffs to the eligible character or bridge officer that pets the tribble.
