We're never sure what we're going to find with the Riddled dream machine. This seems to be someone's Star Trek fantasy. Evidently the main viewscreen is receiving some kind of interference so the transmission from the Klingon Ambassador is coming in garbled and stupid. Kirk is giving Lieutenant Uhura beans about it.
We can't show what happened later because, as a trained typographer, I can't bring myself to use the term "slash-fic". It should of course be "virgule-fic".
UPDATE: Everyone came up to the bridge and kicked the computer but they're still not getting a clear signal on the main viewscreen. Serves them right for buying cut-price gear from the Ferengi.
