Re: How do you insert a Bomb inside a Tribble?

Tribbles are walking mouths as well. They consumed all that poison grain like it was ice cream.

Do they poop?

Or is most of their waste products included in their babies like with humans?

Re: How do you insert a Bomb inside a Tribble?

Surely the Tribble that had a bomb in it was fake?

Arne Darvin, being a Klingon, could never get close enough to a living Tribble in order to try and put a bomb into it. (Klingons hate Tribbles as much as the reverse.) So I figure it would have to be a fake one. With convincing fur, no one would know the difference.

He couldn't have gotten an explosive onto the Defiant.

Arne McGyvered his shit on-site.

A Klingon might hate tribbles when he is forced to be civilized, but if he, or she is allowed to kill a few dozen, just wade in their with a mek'leth...

Cyrano Jones had a sideline of genuine tribble skins sewn around foam rubber. Darvin bought one and put the bomb in it.

Tribbles have a much more efficient metabolism than us lower life forms. They poop babies.

How do you insert a Bomb inside a Tribble?
Tell it to open wide and say "Aahhh"?

With a spoonful of sugar to help the "medicine" go down?

How? With much squealing terror, I'm sure.

Re: How do you insert a Bomb inside a Tribble?

One word: TRANSPORTER. You beam it in to the tribble the way Jadzia beamed that alien conscience out of Dr. Bashir in the season one episode The Passenger. If you've EVER seen an opening on a tribble when they've shown them close up, I wish you'd screencap it for me with an arrow pointing to the opening.

Re: How do you insert a Bomb inside a Tribble?

Given that Trek has shown that powerful bombs can be very small (a few cubic millimeters), it would be easily enough to put one in a hypo and inject the tribble.

So through the eyeball then, or between the toes?

I mean those are our preferred methods, right?

So the bomb got into the tribble, the same way Keiko's baby got into Kira?

There must be a setting on the dermal regenerator that causes extreme elasticity.

I always assumed it was fake as well. But thanks for the mental images, everybody!
