Thing was a term that described an unknown entity.
In the 2270s, James T. Kirk requested that Leonard McCoy to be assigned to the USS Enterprise again. When McCoy protested, Kirk began to explain, "Bones, there's a 'thing' out there..", to which McCoy retorted, "Why is any object we don't understand always called a 'thing'?"
