Trouble may be a bit strong, but I couldn’t resist that bit of alliteration. But we are hearing reports from "a trusted source" of that the furry little creatures that first appeared in the original Star Trek television series will be making some kind of cameo in Abrams upcoming Trek film.

That cameo will be limited to one tribble making an appearance in one scene, apparently in a cage or container of some sort. This doesn’t really sound significant, and more like a little shout-out to all the Trekkies that will be in the audience, but on a slow news day, it’s worth mentioning.

For a look back at all the trouble tribbles can cause, follow the jump!
