Here Comes Tribble! The first set to include Original Series characters. Previously only Spock and McCoy images from TNG episodes were used. Decipher had only just acquired the licence to use TOS and movie images (which previousy rested with Skybox. Included was the first Ultra-Rare (1:121 packs) since Alternate Universe, which was dedicated to Dr. McCoy in tribute to DeForest Kelley who died in the previous year. There was also a range of rare cards (listed by Decipher as (R+) but not marked as such on the cards) which were 33% more rare than the normal rares. Three rares were also classified as Bonus Rares (R*) by Decipher and were inserted in special "two-rare" packs. This is also the first set to have printed card numbers and rarity codes. The cards came as both booster packs and two different pre-constructed starter decks; one Federation and one Klingon. The booster packs came in six different wrapper designs with either Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Worf or Odo on the front. The two types of starter decks each had an exclusive card, Sisko and Koloth. As a bit of fun, 27 of the cards in the starter decks, which were reprinted from earlier editions, had some tribble images added to their scene. All the reprinted cards had the same copyright line as the main TWT cards.
