Jack's Review
While the episode is 100% canon-shattering nonsense, it is 100% pure comic gold. Hilarious and fun from start to finish. Why is it canon-shattering? Tribbles hadn't been discovered until sometime around stardate 4523. They were already a prolific species and as The Trouble With Tribbles illustrates, they require food to breed. What were they eating on board the Cabot? Oh well, it's still a very fun episode.
