More Tribbles, More Troubles.

A sequel to the famous Star Trek episode about tribbles was written in 1973 by its original author as part of the often-overlooked Saturday morning cartoon, Star Trek: The Animated Series.

Apparently Cyrano Jones escaped from his tribble-collecting duty using a stolen tribble-eating predator developed by the Klingons. Now the Enterprise is, again, on a grain transport mission at the exact moment when the Klingons attack the space trader's ship. Inevitably he's beamed aboard -- along with his tribbles.

I watched the episode tonight, and then discovered that it also has a bunch of fan pages on the web. Ultimately Mr. Spock has the best line of dialogue, after the Klingons have disabled the Enterprise's phasers and photon torpedoes.

"We could always throw tribbles at them."
