One of Star Trek’s most memorable episodes, “The Trouble With Tribbles,” first aired in 1967. The trouble with these soothing little fur balls is that the reproduce at warp speed and go boldly through Space Station K-7 eating anything that’s not nailed down – including an entire shipment of grain entrusted to Captain Kirk’s care! In the end, however, the tribbles – who hate Klingons – expose a Klingon agent who has poisoned the grain. As a parting gift, the remainder of them are beamed aboard the enemy ship, where Mr. Scott promises they’ll be “notribble at all.”

Press the button on the base of the ornament to hear Captain Kirk speak and see the troublesome tribbles fall from the overhead compartment.
