There have been a few spaceborne species on trek that are unnamed. Suggestions on how to address this? Tyrant 21:17, 31 May 2005 (UTC)Tyrant
Well what counts as space born?
1) Species that NORMALLY live in space?
2) Species that CAN live in space?
3) Species that CAN travel in space, but live on a planet?
Also I don't think '*' should be used for the Space Amoeba (non of them are sentient), or the Pitcher Plant (it was sentient and we have no reason to assume others wouldn't be).
I think we should stick with things that actually live in space, not things that can travel through space.
Would 8472 count?
They don't live in space (but can survive in it), but they live in Fluidic Space.

Change to a category?Edit
Should this be merged with non-atmospheric organism? As far as I know the term "spaceborne species" has never been used in Trek (except for spaceborne virus). It was just a convenient term for categorizing all these space animals, but we have an actual canon term now. -- UncertainError (talk) 03:16, October 31, 2017 (UTC)
- There were references to "Space-dwelling lifeforms" in VOY: "Elogium". However, we have that page as the particular unnamed species in that episode, which seems a bit odd to me. Surely they should be considered unnamed space-dwelling lifeforms.
