An egg was an ovum used for procreation of many lifeforms. Eggs that consist of a large embryo surrounded by nutrients are laid by female birds, fish, or reptiles. The unhatched eggs of fish are known as caviar. Many of these eggs are commonly prepared as food.
Eggs can have symbolic meanings; they often stand for the concepts of completion and rebirth. The followers of Doctor Sevrin all wore a small insignia consisting of an infinity sign within a yellow egg, itself within a white egg. In order to greet each other, they made an egg-shaped gesture with their hands and spoke the words "We reach." (TOS: "The Way to Eden")
