Scotty's explanation to Captain Kirk

Remember Star Trek's TOS episode "The Trouble with Tribbles?" Captain Kirk soon discovers what Scotty and Chekov were brawling about on the K-7 Deep Space station. Here's Scotty's and Kirk's funny dialogue word for word.

(Except thats Chief O'Brien!! played by Colm Meaney. Whats he doing in this photo shot?)

Owner/Creater: Paramount Pictures and/or CBS Studios.

Scotty: Well, captain, er, the Klingons called you a tin plated over bearing swaggering dictator with

delusions of godhood.
Capt. Kirk: Is that all?
Scotty: No sir, they also compared you with a Denebian slime devil.
Capt. Kirk: I see.
Scotty: And then they said you were...
Capt. Kirk: I get the picture, Scotty.
Scotty: Yes, sir.
Capt. Kirk: And after they said all this, that's when you hit the Klingons.
Scotty: No, sir.
Capt. Kirk: No?
Scotty: No, er, I didn't. You told us to avoid trouble.
Capt. Kirk: Oh, yes.
Scotty: Well, I didn't see it was worth fighting about. After all, we're big enough to take a few insults,

aren't we?
Capt. Kirk: What was it they said that started the fight?
Scotty: They called the Enterprise a garbage scow. Sir.
Capt. Kirk: I see. And *that's* when you hit the Klingon?
Scotty: Yes, sir.
Capt. Kirk: You hit the Klingons because they insulted the Enterprise, not because they...
Scotty: Well, sir, this was a matter of pride!
Capt. Kirk: All right, Scotty dismissed. Oh, Scotty, you're restricted to quarters until further notice.
Scotty: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. That'll give me a chance to catch up on my technical journals.

Trials and Tribble-ations is an super fun Deep Space Nine episode. Time runs out for Bashir and O'Brien, Worf and Odo who get swept into a bar brawl on Deep Space Station K-7 between the Klingons and Enterprise crew. This episode is awesome.

Worf does his best to hide from the Klingons who are noticably different during this timeline, Dax is swooning over lady killer Captain Kirk's charms and tos crew members are oblivious about the bomb sent to kill... but I won't spoil it for you. Just watch this one, its definitely entertaining.

In the line-up Bashir and O'Brien are questioned by Captain Kirk himself because they get rounded up by Enterprise security personnel. Kirk not recognising his own men? hmmmm..... the jurys still out on that one.
