Can it fit in the TOS movie space dock?

Since this is 25 questions, I assume it's with the new rules. Correct?

Question: Is it now, or has it ever been alive?

Yes it would fit in a spacedock.
Yes it is alive

23 to go.

Was it first seen in a modern Trek - i.e. TNG, DS9 or Voyager, Generations, FC or Insurrection?

Is it humanoid?

What I have in mind dates from pre-TNG.
It is not humanoid.

21 to go.

Now, wait... When you say "pre-TNG", do you mean Trek or real-world? Bear in mind that, real-world, ST5 and ST6 overlap TNG. So, in other words, do you mean it's something that aired pre-1987, or something that took place pre-2364?

Yes.


Oh, alright then, since I expect someone will get it pretty quickly anyway. You could have played this game and discussed this particular Species/Starship/Anomaly before 1987.

Another question down.

OK, alive, not humanoid, and from TOS or one of the first four movies. Or maybe TAS. And smaller than spacedock. That eliminates starship and anomaly. Non-humanoid life-form from that time period that isn't gigantically huge. Well, it's not that amoeba. Too big.

Question: Is it an energy being?

Horta and Companion are the only two that immediately come to mind. And then there's that cloud from "Obsession". 'Course, I don't know my TAS that well.

I believe that was called the "dikronium cloud creature". And the Horta was the first thing that came to my mind, too.

Hmmmm People are throwing in suggestions masquerading as thinking aloud in the hopes I shall let slip extra info. Naughty Naughty!

You ask if it is an "energy being" This is rather a vague description, so I shall attempt to be specific in my answer. The life-form I am thinking of is not a "field of energy" which bizarrely is alive. It is composed of matter.

*Balokspeak*
You now have... 19 questions!

It just hit me: V'ger was alive, in a sense. The probe itself would fit everything, too.

Question: was it from TOS? Meaning, did it appear in the show that aired from '66 to '69?

Question: is it natural?

Omega, V'ger wouldn't fit in a spacedock though.
