They'd be no tribble at all.


Scenes you'd forgotten (or wish you had) Part 4: Scotty is One Sick Puppy.

In the classic Star Trek episode "The Trouble With Tribbles" Captain Kirk returns to the bridge at the end of the episode to find all the cute, furry tribbles are gone.

As the rest of the crew evade Kirk's inquiries into what happened to the tribbles Scotty finally admits that he beamed the "whole kit n'kaboodle" over to the Klingon Engine Room right before the Klingons take-off.

Captain Kirk, or should I say "Captain Jerk," and the rest of the bridge crew have a HUGE laugh at this without anyone stopping to ask what will happen to a bunch of furry, defenseless critters sent onto a ship crewed by the most murderously vicious aliens in the galaxy who happen, by the way, to hate cute, cuddly tribbles most of all.

I'll tell you what happened. The Klingons went on a murderous bender. They slaughtered the tribbles en masse. They ate the Tribbles alive, played Klingon foosball with them and generally made a huge mess composed of blood, tribble bits and fur.

Scotty's no hero. He's the man responsible for the Tribblecaust.

Good for the Klingons

I think that you underestimate the power of the Tribbles.

Zaius-

Your comment is a welcome change to all the tribble-hate that preceded it.

Obviously I didn't consider that tribbles could kick serious ass.

Perhaps they ate the Klingons.

Well, in that case, f**k the Klingons

The great thing about Tribbles is that even if they are almost extinct you can repopulate them in very little time.

Also, Klingons can't stand Tribbles. The sound of the Tribble SHRIEK actually causes Klingons pain. They probably just beamed them out into space.

Yeah, I guess they'll never be endangered. Still - It's like sending kittens into a wood chipper. We have endless amounts of kittens but it's still pretty mean.
