Capillary scan 8472

A scan of a perfect simulation of Human capillaries

A capillary was the smallest type of blood vessel and a part of the circulatory system in humanoid lifeforms.

In 2365, during Captain Jean-Luc Picard's cardiac implant replacement surgery, the surgeon noted that there had been some capillary reaction and the surgical team needed to proceed carefully. (TNG: "Samaritan Snare")

In 2370, Reginald Barclay anxiously informed Doctor Beverly Crusher that he thought his capillaries were shrinking. (TNG: "Genesis")

In 2372, the capillaries in Jake Sisko's cerebral cortex dilated 20 percent, due to Onaya's stimulation of his brain. (DS9: "The Muse")

When Species 8472 imitated Humans and recreated Starfleet Command, their simulations were indiscernable from the real thing. The Doctor scanned the David Gentry-impersonator, finding no difference down to the capillaries. (VOY: "In the Flesh")
