Overview

The most popular guest characters to appear in the original Star Trek series spoke no lines.


Small of stature and quite round in shape these life-forms made their lasting contribution to the Federation by eating, reproducing and, occasionally, by hissing at the nearest Klingon. Of all the beings ever encountered on the historic five-year mission, only this species managed to upstage the captain, and the entire Enterprise crew for that matter, by quietly being themselves.


We're talking about tribbles, of course.


Remember, they aren't just any furballs -- they're tribbles, the most fabulous furballs in the galaxy!

First Chapter

  • They're "the sweetest creatures known to man."

  • They purr when they like people -- and they seem to like everyone, with the exception of Klingons.

  • They have no teeth.

  • Their trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system.

  • Vulcans are immune to this effect.

  • They are mature enough to leave their parent after one day.

  • Almost fifty percent of their metabolism is geared for reproduction.

  • The more they eat, the more they reproduce. Conversely, if you stop feeding them, they stop breeding.

  • The good: they're nice, they're soft and furry, they make a pleasant sound, they do not talk too much.

  • The bad: they have no practical use, they eat a great deal, they seem to be born pregnant.

  • They are "bisexual," reproducing at will.

  • They have "a lot of will."

  • They are "the only love money can buy."

  • They originally developed in a predator-filled environment.

  • They are "not dangerous."

  • They like chicken sandwiches and coffee.

  • Under optimal conditions, the average tribble is capable of producing a litter of ten every twelve hours.

  • They are "very perceptive creatures."

  • They were once considered mortal enemies of the Klingon Empire, considered "an ecological menace, a plague to be wiped out."

  • Hundreds of Klingon warriors tracked them down throughout the galaxy, and an armada obliterated the tribble homeworld.

  • By the end of the 23rd century, the species had been "eradicated."

  • Degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon: three.
