About The Trouble With Tribbles (From Wikipedia):

trouble-with-tribbles“The Trouble With Tribbles” is the 44th episode of the American science fiction television series Star Trek, the 15th episode of the second season. It was first broadcast in the United States on December 29, 1967, on NBC. In this episode, the ship travels to Deep Space Station K7 to guard a consignment of grain bound for Sherman’s Planet. On arrival, a trader named Cyrano Jones (Stanley Adams) gives Lt. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) a tribble, with dramatic consequences. Kirk and the crew also have to deal with the arrival of Captain Koloth (William Campbell) and his Klingon battlecruiser, but the tribbles unexpectedly reveal a plot to poison the grain.

Around 1,500 tribbles were created for the episode, with special tribbles created for certain purposes such as out beanbags or with surgical balloons inserted in them. While initial fan reaction to the episode was mixed, it was more popular with the general public. Critical response to the episode was positive, and it was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation which instead went to fellow Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever”. It has since been included in several “best of” episode lists and features, including as part of the Best of DVD collection alongside three other episodes. It has also been released as part of the season two DVD box set.
