Paramount wants a photo of you and your Tribble

Star TrekTo celebrate the release of the second season of the original Star Trek on Blu-ray, Paramount will be handing out free Tribbles at the San Diego Comic Con. Not only that, but they are asking people to upload digital photos of them and their Tribbles in unusual circumstances.

This might not be the best of ideas. All it takes is one wise-ass uploading a Tribble while in a compromising situation involving leather, chains and whipped cream to ruin it for everyone else.

If Paramount is going to promote Star Trek on Blu-ray, then the SDCC is the place to do it. DVD is adequate, but Blu-ray is for the hardcore science-fiction and fantasy film and TV nerd.

But, don't take my word for it. After the jump, David Gerrold (who wrote the original "Trouble with Tribbles" episode) along with a few of his friends will tell you of the details of this promotion. Trekkies, prepare your Tribbles.

I was just going to ask, if you have one from back in the '90s can you still participate? But Ratphink, you've got me beat. '77? Wow. I bet it doesn't look a day over 25. ;D

I still have a Tribble from my first Star Trek convention back in 77. Just might have to post a pic.
