Another lousy episode...but with tribbles.
9 April 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I realize that ANY episode in the Trek shows that features tribbles will be adored by most die-hard Trekkies. I guess my love of decent animation and good writing exceed my love for Star Trek and I'd consign this to the category for fans only!

When the show begins, the Enterprise is on some mission about 'quintrotritacle'--why it wasn't called 'quatrotriticale' like it was in "The Trouble With Tribbles" is beyond me. Along the way, they come upon a Klingon ship trying to destroy a shuttle. The Enterprise unwisely intervenes and finds the ship piloted by Cyrano Jones (Stanley Adams once again) and it's stuffed with sterilized tribbles. What follows is pretty much what you'd expect...and is totally unnecessary. Mildly interesting at best and filled with giant PINK tribbles.
