    Tell it to open wide and say "Aahhh"?

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

    Two pages in and no one's said, "Very carefully" yet?

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

    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.

    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!

    You're welcome.
    We aim to please. :rommie::rofl::guffaw::lol:


    No. Last time I watched the DS9 episode Trials and Tribble-ations and TOS episode The Trouble With Tribbles, Dr. Bashir wasn't the one who put the bomb in the tribble. Bashir did transplant the baby from Keiko to Kira so he could save both Keiko and the baby.
