There is an auction of six screen-used DS9 tribbles from the collection of Star Trek photographer Michael Grecco who was allowed to keep them after the filming of the episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" 30% of the profits from the auctions will go to help defray the cost of TrekCore. Check out the Tribbles at Ebay.

It’s too bad I’m not really a DS9 fan, cos this is the coolest fundraiser. :D

I bought one of the Awesome Major Kira 8X10s. I am pleased, and glad to help. I love their site…


Wow, they have a lot to auction off! Look at that picture!

I have a knock off tribble, now this would be cool.

Love DS9 and that’s a great picture. TrekCore is a fantastic site.

Better get ’em spayed or neutered, or you’ll end up with more tribble than they’re worth!

Good luck to everyone bidding. I’m broke, so.. yeah. xD

Hey! Can I pay a whole bunch of money for a ball of fluff too?

That photo is awesome!


I have an original TOS tribble out in the storage shed I should drag out for Ebay I suppose .

Wow…those little fluff balls are expensive.

“This is Bob Barker reminding you to have all your tribbles spayed or neutered.”

I want that photo though…poor Worf, he’s next to a whole table of the things. =P

This is cool! I loved DS9!

If any of the series deserves a resolution it is DS9. I’d really like to know what happened (or will) with Capt. Sisko.

For all you who like the photo, but can’t afford the tribbles, check out the link at the end of the article ( and linked here from my comment. You can buy the photo, and a few others, from the photographer. Most of the others are variants of the season 6 publicity photos, variants never sold before. Different sizes available, and a portion of the profits goes to help TrekCore. If the photos sell well enough, the photographer also did some photo shoots of Jeri Ryan and (I think) Jolene Blalock, and those might become available at some point, too. ;)

Good luck to anyone bidding!

TrekMovie is the CNN of Trek? So, you’re admitting a major bias and skewed reporting!!! HA!

I kid, I kid.

I hope the bids stay within my price range, I would love to own a Tribble from that episode as it’s definitely one of my favorites! I would LOVE to have that sitting in my edit suite. When anyone entered I could grab it and pet it as if I were an evil genius and say “I’ve been expecting you. I must admit, I never thought you’d make it this far…”

*sniff* already out of my price range… :(
