"In 2269 Koloth pursued a Federation scoutship piloted by Cyrano Jones, a Federation citizen who was responsible for causing ecological sabotage to a Klingon planet and stealing a Klingon *glommer*. Koloth encountered and attacked the Enterprise in order to retrieve Jones and the glommer. (TAS "More Tribbles, More Troubles")

A glommer is a Klingon genetic construct; a red spiderish tribble predator. It engulfs the smaller tribbles with its body and discharges a deposit of converted tribble. [MTMT p.183]

During *jak'tahla* [puberty] Klingons experience excessive hair growth, severe mood swings, unusual aggressive tendencies and the occasional *gorch* [pimple]. (ST: Insurrection)
