Trivia

There are discrepancies in the duration of scenes that were continuous shots from Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles (1967). Cutaways in the re-edited scenes allow for events in adjacent shots of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (1996) to occur simultaneously with each other to account for any added overages, and for reinsertions from the original (e.g. where Chekov receives the bag of grain from Kirk as Odo waits) to maintain continuity except for one: an exchanged look between Kirk and Jadzia Dax on the bridge adding 47 frames (approx. 1.5 seconds).

Goofs

Chief O'Brien's hairstyle reverts back to his "normal" 24th Century hairstyle once He and Dr. Bashir beam over to the K7 space station from the Enterprise. Moments earlier, his hairstyle reflected the hairstyle (combover with part) as worn by the 23rd century human male crew members. See more »

Quotes

Worf: Where did you get that... 'thing'?
Odo: From a man named Cyrano Jones. He told me tribbles like everyone. This one doesn't seem to like you.
Worf: [shouting] The feeling's...
Worf: [composing himself; softer] ... is mutual. They are detestable creatures!
Odo: Hm... interesting. It's been my observation that most humanoids love soft furry animals; especially if they make pleasing sounds...

re: Now if you call you self a Star Trex fan - this is a must see!
6 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another brilliant episode within the Star Trex saga. What a episode this one was.

Its one that you have to see if you are a true Star Trex FAN. Well written, believable, and enjoyable all at the time same with the cast from The Original Star Trex, and this present one - Deep Space Nine. Well worth watching, and a credit to all of the Star Trex series...

How they managed to merge the story and the characters between the original story line of "Tribbles" - with the Original Star Trex and together with a few of the staff of Deep Space Nine. I will never know.

I wondered who wrote the storyline for this excellent episode of Deep Space Nine? Wonderfully written.

Every one that likes Star Trex always votes for - "City on the Edge forever" - as the greatest Star Trex episode. Well take a look at this episode and always watch - "Let me be your last battlefield" episode within the Original Series of Star Trex - and you might change your mind.

Both are just as good as "City on the Edge forever".

10 out of 10 Brilliant.
