The best moment for me is when Kirk is asking Scotty why he started the fight with the Klingons. The look on Kirk's face when he realizes that it was an insult to the ship, rather than to the captain, that pushed Scotty over the edge, is priceless. Shatner's best comic moment.

Yes Shatner can be a great comic actor.

Yes, even when he isn't doing comedy.

Priceless, indeed.

I said for years, after seeing him in Airplane 2, that he should do a comedy series. Eventually he was on 3rd Rock From the Sun then Boston Legal where his comedic talents were well used and on display. And he won multple awards for his Denny Crane.

Yeah, I called it.(I really did. Ask my friends)

I always laugh at the end when Kirk said You gave them to the klingons, and his reaction

I think one reason a lot has been said about this episode in the past is because David Gerrold wrote a book about his writing experiences and everything leading up to and through the production of his story. I mean, who amongst us wouldn't die to have a story of ours picked up produced and televised by the producers of one of our favorite TV shows back when we were in college? It was a very humorous book that he wrote- the title escapes me now but I remember reading it when I was like 10 or 11. I took it to a Con when I was in college and he autographed it for me. He mentions eating lunch once with Nichelle Nichols and some salad dressing accidentally dropped from her fork into her cleavage and he almost lost it 'cause he really dug her so much. I think he has a reputation for being a sex maniac.

I have to say that "The Trouble With Tribbles/Trials And Tribble-Ations" is/are my favorite Star Trek episode(s). TTWT is a great episode in that it was made simply for laughs. There is really no moral to the story. It was just fun. And when Tribble-Ations was aired, it was a wonderful way to connect the 23rd century with the 24th and to verify that the TOS and TNG eras were indeed from the same universe and timeline. I have actually made my own version of Tribbles/Trials that uses all the footage from Tribbles that was edited out for Trials. It ended up being around 90 minutes long. Almost like a mini-movie. And I was able to use the footage from TOS-R so it looks great with all the new CGI effects.

Edit: I just finished an updated version of my "The Trouble With Trials And Tribble-Ations" extended episode. The transitions are smoother and the scenes where TOS meets DS9 are better integrated. It is actually 125 minutes long with opening and end credits. I'm planning to divide it up into 10-minute parts and post it on youtube. For anyone interested, you can look up tjhaywood100 on youtube and it should be there in a few days.

Wonder if that was where the Tribble's constant breeding came from!

Edit: They've been uploaded. Check it out here: Click For Tribbles!

Edit: It's actually 1 hour and 25 minutes, not 125 minutes. My bad.
