It has been noted that no Grigari construct has been able to overcome a life or death situation without attempting to bargain for its life. ({{n|DS9|The War of the Prophets}})

[[Nanotechnology]] was the secret of the success of Grigari medical technology. Their molecular assembly devices could expertly weave together flesh and steel, uniting living nervous systems directly with computer-control circuits. But it was not a static situation. The flesh of most life-forms would eventually reject the filaments of connection the Grigari devices wove. So the devices were programmed not to stop, in order to continually maintain the connection. Thus, as each layer of living cells became damaged, they were stripped away and replaced by more filaments of circuitry and steel. Eventually, the living body of a Grigari amalgam was completely discarded, replaced with an inexact, mechanical substitute.

The nanocomponents of the Grigari were not strictly confined to the biological but were also capable of infiltrating computer systems. By sending strands of the nanotechnology into a system, they were capable of actually reconstructing themselves into [[duotronic]] circuitry allowing the nanocomponents to create worm programs with impunity. This made it appear that a network was compromised by insiders when in fact it was the computers themselves that were in control. ({{n|ST|{{nd|Federation}}}})
