Although there is no compositing in this sequence, this example of creative editing greatly improves the believability of the scene (besides being extremely humorous). Do you remember in the original episode when random tribbles kept inexplicably falling on Kirk's head while the door was open? Well, in DS9 the answer is found: Dax was throwing them. In the new epispisode, Dax is seen throwing a tribble over her shoulder. In the susequent shot it can be seen bouncing off of Kirk's head. Hey, I'd be irritated too if someone was lobbing tribbles at me.
