(Wyo.)-Tribble-Naming Contest Marks Archives Month

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 10/04/2012 10:49 AM
     CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Anybody who doesn't think this is a cute little news story must be a Klingon.
 
     The University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center is holding a "Name the Tribble" contest. A tribble is a small furball of a creature from the Star Trek television series that first appeared in a famous 1967 episode.
 
     On the show, tribbles endeared themselves to everybody except Klingons, who despised them. The trouble with tribbles is they're very prolific. They overpopulated the Starship Enterprise.
 
     A tribble from the Star Trek set is among many items that science-fiction publisher Forrest Ackerman donated to UW decades ago.
 
     The tribble-naming contest commemorates American Archives Month. Entries can be emailed to ahc(at)uwyo.edu, with "Tribble Contest" and your name in the subject line. The deadline is Oct. 22.
