Notes:

 

This episode was a sequel to David Gerrold's own Original STAR TREK series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles."

Unlike in the original STAR TREK series, the tribbles in this animated episode were all the same color: pink.

This episode's author, David Gerrold, also wrote another Animated STAR TREK episode "Bem". He also wrote the script for the original STAR TREK series episode "The Cloud Minders." David Gerrold recently said that both "Bem" and "More Troubles, More Tribbles" were originally written as possible episodes for the original STAR TREK's third season. He said that Gene Roddenberry asked him to write the tribbles sequel, but that it was dropped when the show changed management. In the mid-eighties, Mr. Gerrold helped Gene Roddenberry create STAR TREK: The Next Generation.

David Gerrold also voiced the character of Korax. Korax had originally appeared in "The Trouble with Tribbles" and was played by Michael Pataki.

Actor Stanley Adams reprised his role of Cyrano Jones by providing the voice of the animated Cyrano Jones.

The Klingon captain Koloth was seen in this episode and was originally seen in "The Trouble with Tribbles." Koloth was played by William Campbell in the original series but was voiced by James Doohan in animated form. William Campbell did later reprise his role of Koloth on the STAR TREK: Deep Space Nine episode "Blood Oath".

This was a very fun episode to watch. I remember the tribble predator the could not cope with the giant tribbles. Koloth was an excellent character and I didn't realize that James Doohan did his voice for this episode. Stanley Adams did a great Cyrano Jones. It would have been great to see him reappear as this character again. Try and see this it's worth the effort! :P
