or is it a tribble

i made my friend watch star trek 2009 and the trouble with tribbles today since she wanted to know the series before the con where i’m gonna cosplay spock (and lets be real i usually just tell her about the memes if anything) and honestly?? showing it to someone else and getting to rewatch the 2009 version for the first time after finishing tos was so fucking emotional god i just love [clenches fist] love star trek

Fireflies by owl city but edited to be about tribbles

You would not believe your eyes
It’s ten million tribbles, guys
Invading all of the Enterprise

‘Cause I’m in the captain’s chair
There are tribbles everywhere
My green shirt’s on and I sit
But a tribble’s there

I’d like to make myself believe
the Enterprise flies slowly
It’s hard to say if I’d rather be
at warp one or warp three
‘Cause all the tribbles, they are mocking me

Now I get beaned on the head
And now the tribbles are dead
As they landed in a pile 'round me

The replicator is jammed
From now on, tribbles are banned
This sure as hell is not what Starfleet planned

I’d like to make myself believe
the Enterprise flies slowly
It’s hard to say if I’d rather be
at warp one or warp three
'Cause all the tribbles, they are mocking me
