Quadrant : Alpha

Lifeform which lived entirely in space. Data described the creature as an asymmetrical field of intense energy, comprising a mass of plasma energy contained within an outer covering of silicates, actinides, and carbonaceous chondrites. Although sensors had difficulty penetrating the interior, it appeared that there was a coherent system of energy storage and utilization at work. The creatures were able to produce energy discharges to scan its surroundings, but could also produce a damaging energy dampening field and dangerous levels of radiation. The creatures were extremely susceptible to even minimal levels of phaser fire. The creatures were discovered by the Enterprise-D in 2367; the ship was forced to kill the first creature encountered when it attacked the ship. they were subsequently able to free an infant creature from the body. The infant latched onto the ship for a time, drawing energy from it. They were eventually able to dislodge the creature safely. [1]
