I think their names will be "T-woks" Tribbles with two arms and legs that walk.

After much deliberation and much effort, Abrams has caved, Mr. Tribble has a new job.

They have been changed before ..... In TAS. Unlike in the original STAR TREK series, where the tribbles were white, tan or brown, the tribbles in a ST:TAS episode were all the same color: pink!

In ST:TOS the tribbles were small, furry creatures with no discernible head or limbs, with a mouth on their underside. Their fur color ranged from brown to grey to tan to white. They trilled when petted by most species, but screeched loudly whenever in proximity to Klingons. Tribbles were born pregnant, an adaptation evolved due to high predation on their homeworld. In the presence of sufficient food, they often bred out of control without predators. In 2267, tribbles were brought to space station K-7 by space trader Cyrano Jones. The station became deluged by them in short time due to their eating of the quadrotriticale grain being stored on the station.

On ST:TAS in 2269, Cyrano Jones trafficked in a pink colored breed of tribble that was supposedly "safe." Instead of breeding many individual young when overfed, these new tribbles were virtual colony creatures, creating dozens of tribbles within their expanding bodies. When sufficiently disrupted, these huge furry bags would burst to spill out their tribble colonies.

Hopefully there will not be tribbles in ST:XI (Especially giant, exploding pink ones!) There are much better cameos to throw in. Gorns, Aquans or Andorians .... Gary Seven, Arex or Sybock, but please no tribbles!

If they must have tribbles I hope they throw in some Glommers, a genetically engineered animal created by Klingon scientists in 2268 as the perfect tribble predator.

In 2269, the first glommer was stolen from the Klingons by space trader Cyrano Jones. The Klingons were furious and they hunted Jones down to reacquire the one-of-a-kind creature.

Personally I think Kirk will find a tribble underneath Uhura's bed (Among other things)
