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

Even though the design of the technology from TOS should seem outdated when compared to DS9, it never seemed anachronistic in the DS9 episode Trials and Tribble-ations. And I don’t know if it was the intention of the writers but I saw Dax’s lines above as helping as they imply the look of TOS era tech as a design choice rather than an outdated 1960s view of the future.
