The 50s

December 29th, 1967: premiere date of the Star Trek episode ‘The Trouble with Tribbles’.

Tribbles – purring, fluffy, and fertile creatures – disrupt the exploitation of a disputed planet between the Klingons and Federation.

Definitely one of my favorite episodes.  I have a weakness to small furry animals.

We’re introduced to Cyrano Jones (Stanley Adams), and Captain Koloth (William Campbell), who appeared to be acquainted with Captain Kirk.  Perhaps he was to be a recurring character.

Campbell also played Trelane in ‘The Squire of Gothos’.

I’ve owned a couple of tribbles over the years, one that shakes when you pet it, and a little plush furball.

I may try to watch this episode later today or this weekend.
