As the subject says, in which ST:Enterprise was it mentioned that Doctor Phlox has Tribbles on hand to feed one of his "pets" ?


I know it was mentioned and that a tribble was seen, but I forgot to note which episode it was, and that is an important piece of information in order to know all four episodes where tribbles were seen.

It was in the episode "The Breach". I remebered the scene and not the episode. Just looked up tribble on Wikipedia.

"The Breach" -- just watched it the other day.


Falor was a prosperous merchant who went on a journey to gain greater awareness: Through storms he crossed the Voroth Sea/ To reach the clouded shores of Raal/ Where old T’Para offered truth./ He traveled through the windswept hills/ And crossed the barren Fire Plains/ To find the silent monks of Kir./ Still unfulfilled, he journeyed home/ Told stories of the lessons learned/ And gained true wisdom by the giving. – Falor’s Journey, “Innocence”

That was a good scene. (And explained why Tribbles didn't just take over their homeworld--- they are kept in check by voracious predators!)


Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

Spock says: "By removing the tribbles from their natural habitat, you have, so to speak, removed the cork from the bottle and allowed the genie to escape."  The way I interpret this line, Spock does not know what the tribbles' natural habitat is like, the way Phlox does, but is able to make a reasonable conjecture that some aspect of that habitat keeps the population in check.

^ Indeed. Thing is I've never seen Trouble with Tribbles yet. But it is (excuse me) a logical assumption.


And then the Klingons wiped out the Tribble homeworld!!

WOW you should watch Troubles with Tribbles. Probably Star Trek's most famous episode.
