TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES

In 1967, “The Trouble With Tribbles,” one of the most famous episodes of Star Trek aired for the first time. In the episode, the Enterprise crew has to deal with a horde of furry ball-shaped creatures that multiply rapidly and cause problems on a space station that is also visited by Klingons.

Nerdy Fact: The scene in which Kirk is buried in an avalanche of tribbles took eight takes to get right. The tribbles were thrown into the hatch by members of the production crew, who were not sure when to stop because they were unable to see the scene.
