Biochips25 A type of cybernetic implant used by the Borg.25 I, Borg
Biocontainment field26 A type of field used in the containment of infectious material on board a Federation Starship.26 Macrocosm
Biofilter27 An element of the transporter system, the biofilter is capable of analysing the incoming pattern and removing any hazardous biological elements such as bacteria or viruses.27 Biofilters are also used in Cardassian replicators.28 The Naked Now
Biogenic field29 Form of naturally ocurring energy.29 Sacred Ground
Bioimplant30 Artifical implant which can replace a damaged organ in the body.30 Paradise
Biomechanical maintenance program31 Element of Data's programming which kept him in good health.31 Data's Day
Bioneural circuitry32 Circuitry composed of synthetic cells within a gel pack.32 Caretaker
Bioneural energy33 Electrical energy generated within a persons brain and nervous system.33 Cathexis
Bioneural gel pack32 An element of modern Federation computer systems, these packs contain biological processing nodes which process information more efficiently than isolinear chips.32 Caretaker
Bioplast sheeting34 Material used in the construction of Data. Data has 1.3 kg of bioplast sheeting in his body.34 The Most Toys
Biopolar flow junction35 A conduit branch within the plasma conduits of a Federation Starship.35 One Little Ship
Bioship36 A Starship made out of biological rather than technological materials. At least some Breen ships are biological, as are the warships of Species 8472.36 Scorpion, Part 1
Biosignature37 Signature detectable by medical systems which allows the species of an individual to be determined regardless of exterior appearence.37 It is unclear whether the biosignature is some as yet unknown quantity or simply a combination of factors such as organ arrangement and function. Affliction
Biosynthetic gland38 Borg implant which replaces the glands of an assimilated person.38 The Gift
Biotemporal chamber39 Medical device created in an alternate timeline which was potentially capable of extending the life of an Ocampan by up to a year.39 Before and After

Black cluster43 Astronomical formation created nine billion years ago when hundreds of protostars collapsed simultaneously in close proximity to one another. The region is very dangerous for Starships.43 Hero Worship
Black hole44 A region of space containing a mass so dense that the escape velocity exceeds that of light. Many black holes are thought to contain a singularity, a point mass potentially of infinite density. The boundary beyond which the escape velocity of a black hole exceeds that of light is known as the Event Horizon.44 Parallax
Blast Shutters35 Physical shield device which can be closed over the windows of a small vessel to protect them.35 One Little Ship
Blind beam-out45 Emergency transporter technique in which everything within a specified area is beamed out, as opposed to locking onto specific patterns.45 Emanations
Borg Collective46 The sum totality of the minds of all Borg Drones, linked together via an advanced subspace communications system. The Collective has an implacable determination to improve itself by adding useful biological and technological elements from other species via assimilation of their members. Borg Queens appear to act as a form of operating system for the Borg, co-ordinating their actions.46 The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1

Borg drone47 Humanoid life form which incorporates technological elements in order to expand its abilities. There are many different varieties of Borg Drone, each equipped to perform a specific function, but most have an armoured exoskeleton covering the majority of their skin and one limb and one eye replaced with mechanical substitutes. Borg drones differ from most Cyborgs in that their minds are linked with and under the control of the Borg Collective.47 Q Who
