The Trouble WIth Tribbles...

... is that I can't afford one.
In a windowless warehouse in Crotona Park East, boxes of "Star Trek" memorabilia that were shipped from the part of the galaxy known as Hollywood are being cataloged and photographed. The catalogers and photographers work for Christie's, the auction house that more often handles impressionists and old masters.

The trove will be sold for dollars. Not Federation credits.

...Consider this one, for a pair of items that Christie's expects to sell for $1,000 to $1,500: "Two tribbles of imitation fur stuffed with foam rubber, one gray and black, the other white, gray and brown."
There will be items for auction from approximately $200 on up. You know some Trekkie in a Federation uniform will pay good money for Kirk's uniform... or Worf's rifle... or a model of any of the Enterprises. They're all for sale.

But... I just want a Tribble... oh, the Trials and Tribble-ations... (h/t to SWWBO)
