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.
