Introduced on the original series’ classic episode “The Trouble With Tribbles,” these lil’ guys were the cuter and less mean precursor to the Gremlins. Because if you fed them, they’d replicate like crazy and you’d drown in Tribbles just like poor Captain Kirk did.

Once the Tribbles ship, customers will be able to download the free Section K-7 app to join a covert operation (Section K-7), tasked with seeking out disguised Klingons with anti-Federation sentiment. (K-7 was the space station in the original series on which the Tribble infestation occurred). The app allows you to communicate with your Tribble or Tribbles. You can name them, assign them modes, change their volume, choose which ship they are assigned to, and even prank your friends by triggering your Tribble to scream at them. The app is not required for interaction with the Tribbles.
The company will debut the Tribbles at the Star Trek Las Vegas 2019 convention from July 31st to August 4th. Special pre-sale incentives, including convention-exclusive offerings, are available for a limited time. Visit the company’s website for more details on how to pre-order. Science Division expects Tribbles to begin beaming to customers in early 2020.
