There is a card "Station Offline", you can call a Tribble basically because it uses a token to block one Crew Station. For that i decided to make a special hairy token.

You will need:
1. a toy doggie (make sure nobody has developed feelings for it)
2. sharp scissors
3. glue
4. wooden disc (i used 1.5cm diameter, 3mm thick)
5. a cup just a bit bigger in diameter than the disc (i used a guitar knob)

Instructions:
1. Say sorry to the toy doggie and cut it into pieces. You will need square patches of his fur about 2.5x2.5cm.
2. Put glue around the side of the dics and on its top.
3. Place the fur patch on top of it.
4. Squeeze the whole thing into the cup.

5. Let the glue dry.
6. Pull it out and cut the extra fabric around the disc.



And here we go cool

. . . or pop out to your local sewing shop/market stall and source some fake fur material. Beg em for scraps and off cuts if they have any for free or a small payment.

Doggy would be safe then and minimal tears prospects.

The Tribble tokens look great by the way.

I started with simple ones - the fur was just on the top.



They look ok and you don't need the matching set of cup/disc.
I will use them for Fleet Captains

...or you can buy one of these at your local craft store.



I used these in Star Trek: Attack Wing instead of the cardboard tribble tokens.

They're for various crafts and come in different colors and sizes. I found them at my local Hobby Lobby store, and they have them available online here.
