Klingon Geiger Counter were hard at work in "Trouble with Tribbles" Star Trek's classic episode.
The chance to observe these furry little critters emitting purring sounds had a strangly relaxing effect on me and Mr Spock, although he wouldn't admit it!!! Pointy ears could find no practical use for the lovable little furballs. How could Spock be so cruel? It must be the green blood. The Chief Medical Officer, Dr McCoy nearly dove off the deep end after Mr Spock's extremely harsh analysis. The tribbles were after all soothing creatures despite their voracious appetites with most of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 crew growing very attached to the fluffy warm things. Lt. Uhura couldn't resist picking up a charming tribble on K7 and made off home with her new friend aboard the Enterprise. The tribbles kept the Klingons from running amok on Deep space station K7 except there was a high price to pay. The guy pointing his finger Nilz Baris, the Federation Undersecretary for Agricultural Affairs is threatening Captain Kirk.
Where are the Klingon spies and what happened to the high yield Quadrotriticale kept in the storage compartments?
Can you guess the ending?
Live long and prosper!
