^^ I always assumed Dr. McCoy's offhand comment about tribbles being "born pregnant" was a joke and not meant to be taken literally.
Why not? Aphids are fairly well-documented to be born pregnant (parthenogenetically, of course), and many animals are pretty close to that. It's just a small leap to put it into something that seems mammal-like.
