Is Tribble stew good?
Tastes like chicken.
Here you go. Let me know how they taste.
Clever link but I don't think Tribbles are meat eaters. Kirk was in a pile of them, he would have said ouch.

Re: Tribbles

If one is easily shocked, I recommend one NOT seek out the ditty about tribbles composed by filksong writer Voltaire.

But if you don't mind a bit of ribald humor, you'll find yourself humming the meldoy for days.

Sincerely,

Bill

Surely not fresh meat, but they ate Kirk's chicken sandwich.

The latest Australian pest is the cane toad. It was deliberately introduced to control the cane beetle, which hitched a ride when sugar cane was imported from Hawaii.
You're wrong, it was Bart Simpson's faut!

Zebra mussels are harmless if we compare them to Tribbles. It's cruel, but beaming out Tribbles into space can be a matter of survival on a starship. If they don't starve the crew, they will utimately drain all available oxigyen if they dind't already caused too material much damage by their simple overpopulation.

More like rabbit, probably. But then, I've never had rabbit, I don't know that it might taste like chicken.
Heh, actually, rabbits do taste like chicken.

Re: Tribbles

Tribbles are the fruit of the sea... Of space. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's Tribble-kabobs, Tribble creole, Tribble gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple Tribble, lemon Tribble, coconut Tribble, pepper Tribble, Tribble soup, Tribble stew, Tribble salad, Tribble and potatoes, Tribble burger, Tribble sandwich. That- that's about it

They would be a good species to raise for meat.
Move slow, reproduce quickly, eat wheat.

If memory serves, Australia introduced rabbits and, with no natural enemies , they reproduced like...well...rabbits. Was a major ecological disaster.
The real ecological disaster; MAN

They're also good for making costumes for cabaret girls and strippers.

Re: Tribbles

If you look closely, those are actually little jewels in their navels. Remember, couldn't show them on '60's TV.

Actually they appear to be color-coordinated buttons.

The navel ban was lifted shortly thereafter. Seasons 2 and 3 had plenty of notable navels.
