The Trouble with Tribbles
One of the most persistent species throughout the Star Trek universe makes its debut. Say your first hello to your furry friend who’s fun to be around (for a little while) as we put The Trouble with Tribbles in the Mission Log.

I thought John and Ken were too kind to Lt. Uhura in this episode of “Mission Log,” as one message I saw in “The Trouble with Tribbles” is: Don’t adopt a pet unless you’re ready for the responsibility! (Also, shout out to Bob Barker — a bit of tribble spaying/neutering could go a long way….)
Good message 🙂
You guys touched on this, but I’ve always found the ending kind of disturbing. The whole bridge crew, inexplicably including Uhura, thinks it’s hilarious that all those tribbles are going to be killed. Wouldn’t be quite as funny if the last shot was of Klingons phasering the tribbles or ejecting them into space.
Yep! Just one of those things that is best not to think about 😉
