Format: Paperback
This book is based on the ds9 special episode which ment taking the tos episode the trouble with tribbles and inserting the ds9 actors in it. The book is a bit different than the episode because it adds more deatail which is confusng a bit.I defently suggest that if you have seen the episode you should read the book.

It doesn't expand much on the episode (bar a scene between Bashir and McCoy) but its worth it anyway.

Format: Paperback
The episode shows the crew of DS9 in the "The trouble with tribbles" episode of the original Star Trek. But, Diane Carey makes you feel you are in that time. That Sisko and this crew are in these moments of time. It also fleshes out the characters, making this a really excellent read.

Format: Paperback
An intruiging premise that, despite a firm grasp of the 'voices' of the lead characters, falls a little flat: primarily because it just can't live up to the brilliance of the episode it was based on.

Story decent, kindle lousy 15 Aug 2011
By Just Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the tribble episodes, TOS and DS9, no question. I enjoy most of Carey's stories, too, no question about that either. And this is a decent novelization, though I expected more fleshing out.

But the Kindle edition is almost impossible to read. There are no breaks between scenes -- every scene just runs into the next one. And there are neither breaks between paragraphs nor indenting of paragraphs. There were numerous times I had to go back and reread, and recall the episode, to realize, "ah, yes, we're in a new scene," or "okay, this is where somebody else started acting or talking."

If a person hadn't seen the episode, I suspect they would be completely lost, trying to read this on Kindle.

DS9 Trials and Tribble-Ations - An excellent novelization! 26 Jan 2004
By K. Wyatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When it comes to novelizations of the more popular or special episodes of any of the Star Trek series, Pocket Books usually calls on Diane Carey to cover it, as they did with this exceptional novelization. Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Trials and Tribble-Ations is the novelization of Star Trek Deep Space Nine's fifth season episode that is Deep Space Nine's tributary episode in honor of Star Trek's thirtieth anniversary.
In honor of Star Trek's thirtieth anniversary the producers and writers cooked up this special episode which actually involves footage from the original series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" and threw in the majority of the Deep Space Nine crew to make a very special episode.
In addition to being a wonderful novelization by Diane Carey, this novel also contains an introduction by David Gerrold, who wrote the Original Series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles," which is extremely entertaining and informative.
The premise:
Captain Sisko finds himself being visited by members of Starfleet's DTI (Department of Temporal Investigations), which is paramount to a present day tax audit. The purpose of their visit is to have him explain the recent time travel incident in which Captain Sisko and the crew of the Defiant found themselves in the twenty third century and staring face to face with the original USS Enterprise NCC-1701, commanded by Captain James T. Kirk himself.
What follows from there is most certainly one of the more special episodes in all of the Star Trek series and an exceptional novelization by Diane Carey who quite deftly handles all of the proper aspects of writing a novelization!
I highly recommend this novelization to any and all Star Trek fans who enjoy the Deep Space Nine series and who just enjoy good Trek fiction! {ssintrepid}
A great novel! 27 Jan 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This novelization of the popular DS9 episode is a great read. I'm not a big fan of the Original Series, mostly because I enjoy the high-tech graphics of todays entertainment, but after reading this book, I sat down to watch the Original Series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles" and found it most enjoyable to see it after I had read the book. I focused more on the plot than I did the graphics and it helped me to better understand and savor the episode. The DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" is a celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of Star Trek and, as a special tribute, the cast was digitally put into the old Original Series episode, progressing through their story while the Original Series cast continues through their plot around them. I won't go into the plot itself, as other reveiwers have done so, but I will say that this novel is a must read.

Go Star Trek!!!

Excellent novelisation of the Deep Space Nine Episode!! 29 Nov 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the forward and history of the episode to the way
the episode was novelized, I thought it was one of the
absolute best of the ones done by the Star Trek franchise.
The blending of original Star Trek episode with the new
Deep Space Nine plotline interwoven was incredibly well
done.

I am a die hard Star Trek fan from the very start. This book that is about the Deep Space Nine episode is fantastic. I love it, it has become one of my favorites. The blending of two genres of Star Trek in the same book is excellent. It's a great read.
