This is a seriously adorable little puzzle :) I love the way that you introduce concepts one by one and then assemble complex problems from apparently simple elements.
An Undo button would be very welcome (even just one undo level or two), due to the possibility of causing multiplication or plant-destroying disasters with a stray move - especially towards the end (currently on level 28 and picking my way through a forest of tribbles...)
Ahh, this is fun!
I found a bug with level 7 - if you just move a not'tribble next to the other one, it counts it as 0 moves and you can't pass the level. :( Took me a few goes to figure out I needed to move one halfway, so it'd count as 1 move.
Thanks for the bug report! I knew there was a problem with the move count, but didn't realise it was stopping progress. Will get that fixed asap.
Really enjoyed this. Very clever way to do Star Trek. :)
