One of my all-time favorite eps ever was "Trials and Tribble-ations,"
where the DS9 cast end up back in time on Space Station K-7 just in
time for the Great Tribble Disaster. Not only is the episode an FX
tour de force in seamless video editing, but it also manages to be as
funny as the original (partly by riffing on the original in the
background). Dax was a riot, and they actually addressed the cranial
difference between TOS Klingons and TNG Klingons (mainly by Worf
refusing to talk about it, but at least they didn't ignore it).
I bought my mother the VHS box set that bookended a squeaky tribble
between cassettes of TaT and the TOS TwT, years ago, for Mother's Day.
She still has that tribble.
