This is soon to be a popular forum sig I'm sure, but on what show was the line "Go suck a tribble" used first?
First right answer I'll give 10,000 energy creds in the game.

Whatever your opinion of it, that's not a correct answer.

Somehow I didn't think this game would appeal to many that were born before 1987 or so. I see I was right.

I was born considerably before 1987 and still the quote escapes me. Perhaps you logic is flawed in assuming only Trekkies recalling one specific quote were born before 1987. I will have to laugh at the irony if somebody younger than 22 answers your question correctly.

I wasn't born before 1987. Probably one of the the younger peeps on this forum.

Hm...so a TV show from the 80s. From the context, I'd wager it was said to a Trekkie, which, in the 80s, mean stereotypical nerd. And it sounds like something a high school kid would say.

I'm going to go with "Head of the Class".

I spent some time on google trying various searches as well as skimmed some of the quote sites to no avail. The obscurity of this quote seems to indicate it was limited to a single moment in a non trek show. OP while it may have been humorous in context, there doesn't seem to be anybody out there that found it memorable enough to commit to any website, beyond you. What was the show? what was the context it was said in?
