Undine

Homeworld

The Undine (formerly called Species 8472) have no homeworld.

Home Region or Sovereign Territory

The Undine originate in another dimension, fluidic space, where space is not empty but a fluidic substance.

Description

Only little is known about the Undine. They belong to fluidic space, another dimension where all space is filled with a fluidic substance. When the Borg accidentally got to know about that they planned to assimilate Species 8742 (a designation used by the Borg). The plan failed and instead Species 8472 (the Undine) struck back and invaded part of Borg territory. However they retreated when Federation technology gave the Borg an advantage. Although they have intimidating ships (one is able to destroy a Borg Cube and combined they can destroy a whole planet), they are normally not interested in conquering, probably because they are the only species in the fluidic space and never had to fight for resources. There is a hierarchy in Undine leadership but nothing besides its existence is known.

Size

Undine are more than 2 meters high and weigh more then 100 kilograms.

Traits Common to The Species

Most remarkable is that Undine have three legs. Their arms are very long and their heads have a roughly triangular shape. They are very bony and seem to have at least partly an exoskeleton.

Special or Unique Abilities

The Undine are a species of very talented psionics, especially telepaths. They can project visions to other beings over large distances and most of the they time communicate with psionics. Additionally they are very resistant to damage. They are genetically very advanced and as a consequence posses a very potent immune system, attacking and destroying everything entering their body, that includes Borg Nano-Probes. This is also their most dangerous weapon. When hitting a target they leave a few their cells in the victim’s bloodstream. The cells immediately begin to attack the victim’s cells and destroy him from within.

Special or Unique Skills

Undine are excellent warriors and scientists. They have very advanced technology, e.g. their organic ships.
