List of unnamed Insectoids of various species.

22nd centuryEdit

Archer IV firefly Edit

Dakala bug Edit

Dakalan bug

A Dakalan bug

Among the wildlife on the rogue world Dakala, bioluminescent bugs were observed. (ENT: "Rogue Planet")

This creature was identified as a snake in the final draft script of "Rogue Planet" and was scripted to slither and glow "with an eerie blue bioluminescence." Later in the script, Commander Tucker referred to "snakes [that] glow in the dark." This was changed, however, so that, in the final version, he instead mentions "bugs [that] glow in the dark."
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 177) identified this bug as a millipede.


Loracus Prime termites Edit

Unidentified Loracus Prime termites

Termites native to Loracus Prime

Profiles of a number of termite species native to Loracus Prime were seen in the Handbook of Exobiology. (ENT: "Strange New World")

These termites were seemingly identified in the book, but were barely legible and have not been deciphered.


Xindi councilorEdit

23rd centuryEdit

Amerind insect Edit

Amerind bug

An insect on "Kirok"'s face

This winged insect landed on "Kirok"'s face while he and his newlywed wife Miramanee were talking on the planet Amerind in 2268. (TOS: "The Paradise Syndrome")

It is unknown whether this insect was transported to Amerind by the Preservers as well or was native to the planet.
In reality, it can be attributed (of course) to the fact that the episode was filmed outdoors instead of on an indoor set.


Captain Edit

Insectoid captain

Captain

This individual served as the captain of the insectoid ship three hundred million years prior to the 23rd century.

He was responsible for destroying his own ship rather than have the magnetic organism that had infected it spread through the Galaxy. His warning would be heard eons later by the crew of the USS Enterprise after discovering the remains of his ship in orbit of Questar M-17. (TAS: "Beyond the Farthest Star")

The alien captain was voiced by James Doohan.


Elysian councilor Edit

Lactra VII biting insect Edit

Doctor Leonard McCoy attributed Nancy Randolph's malaria-type infection to an insect bite in 2269. (TAS: "The Eye of the Beholder")

As this was speculation on McCoy's part without the aid of his medikit, the creature may not even exist.


Rura Penthe prisoner Edit

24th centuryEdit

Klingon food insect Edit

Klingon restaurant sign, Playing god

Alien invertebrate (upper left)

An insectlike creature of unknown origin, was seen on a display in the Klingon restaurant on Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Playing God")

This creature might have been native to Qo'noS or another Klingon planet. It's placement on the display suggests it was edible, and on the restaurant menu.


Martian insects Edit

The Martian insects were forms of life that once existed on the planet Mars in the Sol system.

In 2364, images of the fossil remains were viewed by the Tkon Empire Portal 63 as it read through the entire database of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Later that year, the same images were seen by Lore, as he was using the library computer of the Enterprise-D to learn more of the vessel and its customs. (TNG: "Datalore")

The fossils of these two types of martian insects were seen on library computer viewscreens in the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation without any description. The okudagram images were taken from the Spaceflight Chronology. In the book, the insect remains were described as silicon-based lifeforms about three centimeters long. Their age was silicon isotope dated to be several million years. The fossils were discovered after they were uncovered by a sandstorm in the year 2021. This date of discovery of a silicon-based lifeform would contradict the fact that silicon-based life was considered only a theoretical possibility until 2267, as established in TOS: "The Devil in the Dark".
