    (note to Mods/Admins: This concerns Tribbles in general, but at the same time it's news, a kind of game and kinda freaky fan-stuff. Hence I thought it'd best fit into Misc. Feel free to move it, if you find a better place for it)


    Years ago, the American Heritage Center in Wyoming got presented with a lot of stuff from the Star Trek series.
    Recently, one of their employees, who happens to be a Trekkie, re-discovered the items. Among them is a Tribble, donated by Forrest J Ackerman, for which the archive now is seeking a name.
    The name ought to express the typical nature of a tribble.

    Entries can be emailed to ahc(at)uwyo.edu, with "Tribble
    Contest" and your name in the subject line. They also can be posted at the center's Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/UWAHC
    The deadline for entries is Oct. 22nd

    If I had a bunch of tribbles I'd give them all Klingon names.

    The MIGHTY KOR!!

    :: shakes small furry ball in your face ::

    And then I'd mash two of them together into cleavage and call them Lursa and B'Etor.

    But Kor's a boy's name! Tribbles are born pregnant, so surely they need to be female names?

    Korina?

    Korette?

    I'd like you to meet my tribble, Grilka.

    Grilka is indeed a worthy name for a tribble. Azetbur is also acceptable.

    While I like the following names and think they'd be great, I don't think others will agree: Stormageddon or Fred.

    More appropriate(?): Crazzal, Gerish, Frim, Sotzie.

    Fred is always a good name. Especially for tribbles.

    Unkempt hairy appearance, bearing an irresistible charm as seen by the general public, regarded as a joke by peers, getting into all sorts of mischief that only endears him further, undermining the authority of the people in charge, and with a penchant for procreative affairs (allegedly)... why, the only suitable name has to be Boris. :bolian:

    Maybe it's a good thing I didn't have kids, if these are the names I can come up with! ;)

    Naah, I've heard much worse names for kids :D
    I wonder if ad´fter teh cotest they'll publish the chosen name on their website. They don't even have info about the contest itself online yet! There are a few newspaper articles about it, though.

    My Tribble would be called something that indicates how much the species propagates. Myriad, perhaps.
    And though this is a stolen name, doesn't Woozle sound rather Tribble-ish?
