SYNOPSIS...
The Enterprise and Klingons both show up at space station K-7 for shore leave. A reluctant Kirk is given the job of protecting a wheat shipment.

A local trader aboard the station, Cyrano Jones, sells a small, fuzzy, alien animal called a Tribble to Uhura. Soon both the Enterprise and the station are crawling with Tribbles. Meanwhile, Federation and Klingon crews get into a big brawl.

The Tribbles eat the wheat, get sick, then die. It turns out that the wheat was poisoned. A Federation aid turns out to be a surgically altered Klingon. The Tribbles are beamed aboard the Klingon ship.
