Tripple Tribble Trouble

Prompted by a recent post by dafnap

I have a fairly large collection of laserdisks, mostly bought when they were being sold off at 4 quid a shot by the main UK distributor.
About the most treasured is one called "Triple Tribble Trouble", which has "The Trouble with Tribbles" and the first half of the animated story "More Tribbles, More Trouble" on side A, and the rest of the animated story then the DS9 episode "Trials & Tribbleations" on side B.

As far as I know it isn't available on DVD, if I'm wrong I'd love to know. I really don't want to buy the season collections when there are only a handful of episodes I like that much, this particular theme disk has two of the four or five episodes I really like. But my laserdisk player is getting old, and nobody has them for sale any more, sooner or later I'll have to do without.

I could get it copied onto DVD for myself but I suspect it'd be crap quality and expensive, and my DVD player is so old I'm not even sure it'll play recordable DVDs!

Looking for some German Phrases

I could try Alta Vista, but I suspect that some of the readers here will be able to give me better translations:

Signs:

"Military Contracts Office."

"Civil Identification Bureau."

"No admission to unauthorised personnel."

"Important notice: all personnel without exception must report to the security desk on arrival on Tuesday morning."

"Intruders will be shot."

"Maintenance Department."

Speech:

"Halt or I fire."

"Resistance is futile."

"Surrender!"

All help very gratefully received.
