TrekCore Auction – get your genuine tribbles
There are many great Star Trek websites and one of the best is TrekCore.com. If TrekMovie is the CNN of the Star Trek world, then TrekCore is the National Geographic Channel. With its amazing collection of screencaps, rare photos, videos and more, the website is resource for many fans as they scrutinize a scene or needed references.

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.
