A Glommer

The glommer (or ghIlo'meH) was a Klingon creation designed to eat tribbles. This genetic engineering attempt was the work of Nej. (TOS novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire, tlhIngan Hol reference: How to Speak Klingon)

History Edit

Dr. McCoy noted that "At least it's neat." when feeding on tribbles. Cyrano Jones used glommers to reduce the Tribble population aboard Deep Space Station K-7, as he was required to clean up all such creatures. He brought some glommers aboard the Enterprise to keep control of his genetically engineered Tribbles, but they could do nothing about the massive Tribbles that were created from eating a large amount of food. (TAS episode: "More Tribbles, More Troubles")

In 2373, Julian Bashir suggested that the crew of Deep Space 9 use glommers to eradicate tribbles from Deep Space 9. (DS9 - Strange New Worlds 9 short story: "The Tribbles' Pagh")

Alternate reality Edit

In 2259 of the alternate reality, Glommers lived on Iota Geminorum IV, consuming the tribbles living there.(TOS - The Truth About Tribbles comic: "Part 1")
