A neural parasite is a type of parasite that derives sustenance from the brain or mental energy of another lifeform, or simply uses that lifeform as a host in order to propagate a life-cycle of parasitic behavior.

History and specificsEdit

Notable neural parasites include the blastoneurons that spread to Deneva in the year 2267 and the bluegill parasites that attempted to take over Starfleet in 2364. (TOS episode & Star Trek 2 novelization: Operation -- Annihilate!; TNG episode: "Conspiracy")
