As soon as I saw this I had 1 thought...The Borg would definitely assimilate the Tribbles. I think they be internal mechanisms though. Think about it, aside from Klingons, the 1st thing people do is pick them up or at least pet them. That's when the assimilate them! Borg Trap!
I need to have some "normal", "non-assimiliated", Tribbles drawn for a T-Shirt design I'm working on. Would this be a project you'd be interested in working on and what would you charge (USD) "per tribble"? Please let me know. Thanks!
I could see how the Borg would "appropriate" that species....probably for infiltration work.....small enough to get around undetected....they'd be valuable scouts for the Collective! Could also be fitted with those "tubules" for "biting" someone to assimilate them!
