Class 1 Priority Alert

Starfleet Intelligence has designated this species a

Class 1 Priority




"Insignificant amoeba."
a Quantum Singularity Life-form greeting.
The Quantum Singularity Life-forms are a species of energy based beings with abilities that make them dangerous. Their completely different way of thinking makes them a potential problem regardless of the situation.

Home System

Unknown: The life-forms exist outside of the normal space/time continuum.

History

In 2369, these lifeforms nested in the forced quantum singularity power source of a Romulan warbird, not knowing that it was artificial in origin. The presence of the nest deactivated the warbird's power system. Upon realizing that the artificial singularity was unsuitable for their young, two of the lifeforms assumed Romulan form and attempted to extract them.

The USS Enterprise-D, responding to the Romulans' distress call, initiated a power transfer beam to the warbird. The beam caused a temporal rupture when it came into contact with the lifeforms' nest, effectively freezing both vessels in time and fracturing the flow of time in the surrounding area. The adult lifeforms commandeered the warbird's systems to attack the Enterprise, as the power transfer was damaging the nest.

Captain Picard along with Deanna Troi, Data, and Geordi La Forge, who were not on the Enterprise during the disruption, were able to communicate with one of the lifeforms and determine the situation. They prevented the lifeforms from destroying the Enterprise and disconnected the power transfer beam. Once the beam was disconnected, the lifeforms moved themselves, their nest, and the warbird into their native realm.

Description

Non-humanoid aliens who are thought to inhabit quantum singularities, although this is speculation drawn from their reproductive habits. Very little data has been recorded that would indicate a description of the likely physical appearance of an adult; however, the aliens are able to take control of a humanoid host in order to interact with other humanoid life-forms. This process is fatal to the host.

Physiology

It is impossible to tell whether or not a humanoid host has been possessed by a quantum singularity life-form by sight alone. A detailed medical scan will reveal a partially altered body chemistry, and the presence of unusual cells within the host. When occupying a humanoid, the life-forms have the ability to emit a biochemical discharge capable of sending a human into neural shock. This process, however, results in the degradation of their own cells, proving fatal within a few minutes of administration, and is therefore used only as a final defensive resort.

Reproduction

The process by which these aliens reproduce is unknown. However, their habits post-birth indicate that their young must nest within a quantum singularity, referred to by the aliens themselves as a "gravity well", in order to survive. The singularity must be naturally occurring; an attempt to raise their young in the artificially created singularity at the heart of a Romulan Warbird was met with failure. Furthermore, the attempt to repair the Warbird's engine core via power transfer from the USS Enterprise resulted in fragmentation of the space/time continuum with disastrous results: a feedback-pulse induced warp core breach.

Attempts to scan the infant life-forms within their artificial nest resulted in an increase in the speed of passage of time. It was theorised, and later proven by Lieutenant Commander Data, that the delta-band emissions of his tricorder were the cause of this phenomenon. Indeed, he was able to reverse the passage of time by using carefully modified delta-band emissions.

Psychology

Little is known of the aliens' psychological characteristics. The only two such entities encountered by Starfleet were defensive of their young to the point of open hostility. However, after attacking Lieutenant Commander Geordi LaForge and sending him into neural shock, one of the life-forms communicated with other members of the USS Enterprise's bridge crew, explaining the cause of the temporal fragmentation that they were experiencing, and suggesting a solution.
