Summary[edit | edit source]

After leaving Deep Space Station K-7 in disgrace, Captain Koloth of the IKS Gr'oth discovers that the USS Enterprise has beamed a number of tribbles aboard his ship. He tries many different strategies, but fails to eliminate them. The Gr'oth is prevented from entering Klingon space because of the tribbles, so Koloth contacts his friend Kang, who suggests a battle to lift his spirits.

The Gr'oth flies into Tholian space looking for battle, engages four Tholian fighters, and manages to destroy two of them before the ship is badly damaged. Koloth then contacts Kang, who enters the battle in his ship, the IKS SuvwI'. Kang finishes destroying the Tholian ships and beams Koloth's crew over to his ship. Koloth, the last to be beamed aboard the SuvwI', sets his ship's self-destruct, ensuring that it (and the tribbles aboard) is destroyed.
