Star Trek Discovery will have Tribbles!

Discovery executive producer Alex Kurtzman revealed at a press event that Tribbles will be on the show. Tribbles first appeared on  the original series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles” in 1967. These furry aliens  are native to the planet Iota Geminorum IV. They appear as small bundles of fur with no other visible features. Their coloring ranges from white and grey to black, as well as speckled brown, yellow and orange. According to Dr. Leonard McCoy’s dialogue, their only two purposes in life appear to be to eat and to reproduce, and they perform both of these functions exceptionally well. McCoy concludes that tribbles use over 50% of their metabolism for reproduction and that they are born pregnant.

Star Trek: Discovery debuts Sunday, September 24 on CBS, before moving to the CBS All Access streaming service for follow-up weekly installments.
