These enormous jelly-like
uni-cellular creatures coming from an unknow planet. Each creature is a part of a bigger
complex entity, formed by all the separated uni-cellular beings. The parasitic creatures
cause insanity in victims by landing on their backs and entering the nervous system via
the spine, which they wrap around. The only weapon that can destroy these parasites is the
light. Dr. McCoy first thought that only white light might destroy them (1000 candles per
square inch), but after a very dangerous experiment with MR. Spock, he discovered a
human-safe way to destroy them by exposing to a ultraviolet light.
