I think a tribble could only wear one while taking a siesta, otherwise it would probably interfere with their eating and mating and whatever else they do.

Just kidding, we all know they don't do anything else.

Re: Borg tribble subplot?

If Abrams can include the Borg Tribbles while preserving canon, we're onto a winner.

Re: Borg tribble subplot?

This thread was absolutely the first time I've heard of the Borg Tribbles.

This is a nightmare.

Give them time. I'm sure if not in this upcoming movie, they'll use them in some later installment.

This is just SO ugly...

If they aren't a major element of this film, I suggest they add a post-credits scene in which Uhura shows Spock the cute, furry fuzzball she just bought at a starbase. Spock looks at it, pauses, looks up at the camera, and calmly announces: "Red alert." End scene.

Awesome but they aren't Borg. Is this the poster for a Tribble Prequel Movie?

Isn't it the cover of one of the current comic book tie-ins? I haven't seen or bought them, so I don't know.

EDIT:
Yep. Apparently.

Besides, just imagine if Moore was the one following up with this movie - Cumberbatch would be a tribble!
And the tribbles have a plan...

Well of course, they're not revealed as Borg on the cover, that would Spoil the twist. The Comic is the Borg Tribble Origin story
