This was a favorite episode for me, on the original Star Trek.
And, saw this article, and posting here, in case of any interest. Also did not know what Roddenberry was a bit disturbed by it having so many elements of comedy.
Depicting the infestation of the Enterprise by a gaggle of rapidly replicating balls of fluff called Tribbles, the episode is light-hearted enough to engage the attention of new viewers, while still offering vintage Trek elements like Klingons, Shatner-isms (“This is my chicken sandwich and coffee!”) and Spock and Bones snarkfests.
How did Gene Roddenberry feel about the episode?
Jesus: For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words? Psalm 37:21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.
