ReviewsStar Trek: The Animated Series - "More Tribbles, More Troubles" (01x05) - Recommended
Official Synopsis: "As it escorts two robot grain ships to Sherman's Planet, a world ravaged by crop failures and famine, the Enterprise breaks course to track a Klingon battle cruiser that is pursuing a one-man scout ship. When the Klingons fire on the smaller vessel, Kirk instructs Scotty to beam out the pilot, but the Klingon blast decalibrates the integration parameters. Using a dangerous new weapon — a projected stasis field effect that disrupts ship's engines and weapons — the Klingons fire on the Enterprise and cripple it.
"Klingon Captain Koloth hails the Enterprise and tells Kirk that the man caught in the decalibrated transporter beam has committed an act of ecological sabotage, and threatens to take him by force. Kirk sends the two grain ships on a ramming course for the battle cruiser, and Koloth's attempts to stop the other two vessels drains too much of their power, though one grain ship is damaged.
"The crisis averted for a moment, Kirk moves to the transporter room, only to discover that the rescued pilot is trader Cyrano Jones ... and he's brought piles of puffy pink tribbles with him! Jones claims that he's had the tribbles genetically engineered so that they don't reproduce, making them 'safe.' He also shows them a tribble predator known as a glommer, and tells them that he inadvertently sold the Klingons some tribbles, thus causing the 'ecological sabotage' to which Koloth referred."
The original series episode "Trouble with Tribbles" is one of my favorites because of it's perfect balance of humor and tension. Plus, Mr. Spock petting a Tribble is one of his best moments. Originally, it was planned to be a live-action episode for the series, but was dropped and picked up by the animated show. This is where the Animated Series shines because it was able to take ideas from the show they couldn't do and make them work. Plus, it answers the question: whatever happened to Cyrano Jones?
