Did You Know?


David Gerrold's original idea for this episode was that the tribble predators would breed as fast as the tribbles. Then, crew members would begin to go missing implying that the predators ate them. But the producers felt that would be too violent for a Saturday morning cartoon. See more »

Great Story, Terrible Animation!
30 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All 22 (or so) animated Star Trek Episodes were well-written with voices from most of the original series actors, but, oh, that bad animation! Basically a moving "storyboard" with minimal movement, from the "Clutch-Cargo" (only the mouths move) and Hanna-Barbara school of "short-hand" animation. Almost like watching a "scanned" comic strip or linked still-pictures! Also, you could tell that the whole thing was produced like a "radio-play" as there was no interaction and very little humor in the series. Not even the original music! Indeed, all the actors never sat down together at the same time to record their lines! Saved from being unwatchable garbage by the fact that Gene Roddenberry had a hand in the production. Originally, every major character was to have a "Jr." sidekick in uniform--what an incredibly stupid idea! However, it was food for the "starving Star Trek fans" until the many movies and spin-offs followed. As noted, good story, bad animation! As for the story, see a much better produced "Tribbles" reprise on a much superior (and funnier) live-action "Deep Space Nine" episode!
