“The Great Tribble Hunt” was the derisive nickname that Odo gave to the organized extermination campaign against tribble species which the Klingon Empire conducted in the late 23rd century. The motivation for this extermination was due to the Klingons belief that they were an ecological menace.

When told of the event by Worf while temporally displaced to Deep Space Station K-7 in 2268, Odo asked him dryly, "Do they still sing songs about 'The Great Tribble Hunt'?"

Tribbles were later brought back from near extinction when one was brought forward in time to 2373, the species' infamous ability to reproduce allowing it to quickly begin the work of replenishing their numbers aboard Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")
