  • In O'Brien's story, the Klingons kept tribbles as pets, until the Romulans invaded having seen them as weak for doing so.
  • Bashir's story presents the theory that a Klingon allergy to tribbles caused the Klingon head ridges that were first seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
  • Michael A. Martin commented that "Nobody Knows the Tribbles I've Seen" was "a very strange tribble story that ended up in issue #14, near the finish of our half-year run on Marvel's Deep Space 9 title. That story - which featured most of the principal characters' inebriated speculations about the origins of the Michael Westmore-era Klingon foreheads as well as the long-standing Klingon-tribble mutual antipathy - made it through the studio's approval process within twenty-four hours, which I'm told set a record at the time".
