Ceti Eel

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Species Name : Ceti Eel1
Quadrant : Unknown

Slug-like creature native to Ceti Alpha V, and the only native life form to survive the change to that planet's orbit after Ceti Alpha VI exploded. The Ceti Eel is about five inches long, covered in ridges along it's back. These contain the small bodies of the creature's young. When released, the young burrow into a person's ear and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex - a habit which renders the person highly susceptible to suggestion. The adult Eel will then exit the ear when grown. In 2285 Captain Terrell and Commander Chekov were deliberately infected by Khan Noonian Singh to coerce them into helping with his escape from Ceti Alpha V. Terrell subsequently committed suicide rather than kill Admiral Kirk, but Chekov's Eel exited his body and was killed by Kirk. He made a full recovery.1
