The launching of the Star Trek animated series was met with both skepticism and protestations by ardent fans that scoffed at the idea of their cultural heroes being reduced to Saturday morning cartoon fodder. But this much maligned and all but forgotten series deserves a second look; there were several very good stories that had the ability to be told in this format that would not have been considered for the live action TV program. Using the animated format allowed the creators to grow Spock to enormous proportions and effectively interact with his comrades; in another episode they were able to shrink each of the crew to the size of a pinky finger; still another episode featured several different alien ships replete with alien crews - something that would have been insurmountable budget-wise on the previous televised series. Additionally D. C. Fontana was prudently retained as the story editor and she was able to get a good number of literate, intelligent scripts from many of the writers that worked on the live action show.
David Gerrold wrote 'More Tribbles, More Troubles' as a sequel to his own classic original series entry 'The Trouble With Tribbles'. It was supposed to have been produced during the third season of that show's run but the director assigned to the task disapproved of "doing Star Trek as comedy" which he firmly believed it wasn't. When the animated series was in pre-production Fontana contacted Gerrold about the possibility of using it on the Saturday morning show and he agreed. This story however isn't nearly as memorable as it's predecessor though Cyrano Jones returns as the scoundrel of a trader with the Klingons in hot pursuit of him.

Of all the original series episodes the Trouble with Tribbles was perhaps one of the most loved; Enough so that it was reprised most recently on Deep Space Nine and earlier in this animated continuation of the original story line. I found it especially hilarious. certain scenes in the video still stick in my mind for example " Mc Coys phrase "these truly are safe tribbles" and the scene reminiscent of the original episode where Captain Kirk gets buried (again) in tribbles. the second episode on the tape Infinate Vulcan is an intiguing concept: combining senscient(Intellegent) plants and cloning. Over and over Gene Roddenberry and the other creators/directors of the Star Trek universe tackle issues of importance to the era they are written/shown in, and they do it in a way that is humerous and gets the point across in a memerable yet not preachy way~ imposed peace-Infinate Vulcan *conservation,instinction- Star Trek IV etc. ~
