Star Trek: Discovery Will Include Tribbles Because, At This Point, Sure, Why Not?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Star Trek: Discovery, a weird conglomeration of good impulses and bad choices.

What is it about Tribbles that everyone feels the need to include them in their prequels?

At a press conference, executive producer Alex Kurtzman teased the return of the furry balls with “Yes, Tribbles, yes.” Which is blatant fanservice, yes, but also not the good kind.

Prequels keep trotting out Tribbles and, were I a Tribble, I would be very concerned by all this slandering of my people.

Tribbles are beloved because because original appearance—and the first time the Federation encountered them—remains one of the gold-standard original series episodes.

Tribbles transcend Star Trek to be something instantly recognisable.
