The Trouble with Tribbles.
They’re the cutest, most prolific aliens in the Star Trek universe—and also the furriest. They are, of course, Tribbles. And at six credits a head—or a body—they also make for good business. At least that’s what Cyrano Jones thought … until the critters got hankerin’ for some wheat. “The Trouble with Tribbles” remains one of the most beloved Star Trek episodes nearly 50 years after it aired, and in this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Matthew Rushing, Andi VanderKolk, and Zachary Fruhling to discuss why that is.
In our news segment, we discuss Nichelle Nichols’s upcoming NASA flight, Shatner’s mosaic tribute to Leonard Nimoy, and Creation’s plans for Star Trek’s 50th anniversary in Vegas. And, we also remember TOS guest star Yvonne Craig.
