Photos: 'Star Trek' props live long and prosper

The cutest pets in the universe. Per Christie's: "Two tribbles of imitation fur stuffed with foam rubber, one grey and black, the other white, grey, and brown--5-inch diameter--made for the 1993 'Deep Space Nine' episode, 'Trials and Tribble-ations' and also used in the alien bazaar scene in the 'Star Trek: Enterprise' episode, 'Rajiin' from 2001. Estimate: $1,000-1,500."
