Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 15 "The Trouble with Tribbles"

Stardate 4523.3: The Enterprise receives a Priority One distress signal from Space Station K-7 and hurries to the area prepared for battle. Kirk, however, is irritated to learn that it was Nilz Baris, the Federation Undersecretary for Agriculture, who issued the alarm only to have the quadrotriticale grain in the station's storage compartments protected. The grain is needed for the Sherman's Planet project, a system inside the neutral zone claimed by both the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Under the terms of the Organian Peace Treaty, rights to each planet are awarded to whichever side can most efficiently develop the planet to the benefit of its social systems. Soon after the Enterprise arives a Klingon ship enters the area. The station manager, Mr. Lurry, must observe the terms of the treaty and allow the Klingons to take shore leave there, but Kirk allows only twelve Klingons at a time on the station. Predictably, a fight breaks out between the Enterprise personel and several Klingon warriors which forces Kirk to cancel shore leave for everyone. Meanwhile, Cyrano Jones, a small-time merchant trader, introduces tribbles to the station. The tribbles, small purring balls of fur, seem harmless enough, but because all they do is eat and multilpy they soon overpopulate the station and the Enterprise. When they discover the tribbles in the ship's food preparation facilities, Spock points out that the tribbles may also be in the grain compartments on K-7 and immediately beams over with Kirk to investigate. The grain compartments, of course, are now filled with gorged tribbles, some of which are dead. McCoy finds that the grain has been poisoned, and with the help of tribbles that don't like Klingons, Baris' assistant is discovered to be a Klingon agent who confesses to poisoning the grain. The Klingons leave the station, and Jones is given the task of picking up every tribble on K-7. Scotty, meanwhile, rids the Enterprise of every tribble by beaming them into the engine room of the departing Klingon ship where, as Scotty puts it, "they'll be no tribble at all."
