Tribbles, furry creatures which eat incessantly and multiply at warp speed, cause headaches for Kirk and company while on assignment to protect a grain shipment on Space Station K-7. Here, they encounter the cuddly creatures who've begun munching their way through the grain while rapidly filling every nook and cranny of the starship. Adding to Kirk's woes are a troublesome trader and some nasty Klingons bent on sabotaging the grain shipment!

Episode 1 While returning to a famine-ridden Sherman's planet with a cargo of quintotriticale, the USS Enterprise encounters a Klingon warship, commanded by Captain Koloth, who is detaining the trader Cyrano Jones. Kirk rescues Jones from the Klingon vessel and discovers him to be carrying a new breed of tribbles which have been genetically altered to slow their reproductive process. However, these tribbles are unable to resist the cargo of quintotriticale the USS Enterprise is carrying. The Enterprise crew soon realizes that the consumption causes the tribbles to grow to a tremendous size. So much so, that Jones' tribble-eating glommer is unable to devour them.

The Klingons return and demand that Kirk hand over Jones, accusing Jones of stealing the glommer from them. Instead of handing Jones over to the Klingons, Kirk returns the animal along with some of the tribbles.

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. That really is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 of Captain James T. Kirk and crew. But what are Captain Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks) and several of his crew doing on it?

The USS Defiant is returning from Cardassian space with the Bajoran Orb of Time. A Klingon named Arne Darvin, surgically altered to look human, has come aboard as a passenger. He uses the Orb to send the USS Defiant more than one hundred years into the past. Darvin plots to change history by and killing James T. Kirk, who exposed Darvin as a Klingon spy trying to poison a grain shipment stored on Deep Space Station K-7. Stopping the assassination isn't the only problem facing Sisko and his crew. In fact, they're facing 1,771,561 problems. They've beamed aboard the USS Enterprise when it's awash in those pesky, nettlesome, ever-multiplying critters, called Tribbles.
