‘Trouble With Tribbles’


Captain Kirk Standing in a Pile of Tribbles

Captain Kirk Standing in a Pile of Tribbles

Trouble with Tribbles is probably the single best-known Star Trek episode from any Star Trek series.  From the second season of the original series, the most memorable characters in the episode are the tribbles, a new alien species that does little apart from eat, purr and reproduce.  Although adorable, the tribbles soon emerge as antagonists to Captain Kirk and his crew due to their fearsome reproductive abilities.  The tribbles are hermaphroditic and self-fertilizing, meaning that each tribble can basically reproduce at will, which understandably creates problems when one is confined to a space ship or a space station.  Will Captain Kirk be able to save both the Enterprise and a space station that has unwittingly become home to a ravenous tribble population from having their food and precious grain stores depleted?  Find out by watching this adorable and awww-inducing episode.
