If you are a Star Trek fan, you will know and understand what this is. If you are not, you will (correctly) just see a ball of fake fur. It was a very old and primitive ball of fake fur with just a basic squeaker inside. Nowadays the toys are far more technologically sophisticated and make authentic sounds. I kept it for years, but eventually decided it had to go, because, well, it's just a ball of fake fur, isn't it?
