It would if you only count the Voyager 6 probe itself. The rest of the cloud was it's ship, effectively. If you count the ship, it wouldn't fit inside the orbit of Jupiter.

The cloud disappeared when is came closer to Earth.
The cloud was 82 AU's in diameter (1 AU = the distance from Earth to the Sun). The ship itself was a whole lot smaller than that, but nonetheless about 100 kilometers long (Kirk ordered to 'skim' the surface at 500 meters for 100 kilometers, and it appeared that they went all the way through to the back of the ship).

Q19: Depends how big your backpack is, but I belive I would be correct in saying yes, you could stuff it in a suitably sized backpack. Why you would wish to is a question.

Q18: The life-form originates from TOS, yes.

Q17: Is it natural? Hell I ask myself that every day. But everybody's at it and I guess the majority carries a certain legitima-
Oh sorry, the life form.
Yes, it is "natural".

16 questions remain.
I remain confident someone will guess it!

Does it appear in DS9 also?

Is it a tribble?

Omega didn't *really* ask it as a question...

I also thought of tribbles back at question 19, but I wasn't sure about wasting the question on everyone else...

Was going to say Tribbles - but I thought the back pack question might be broader incase it was something from TAS!

Not a tribble. So there! :P
And it has not been mentioned in Ds9, nor anywhere but TOS for that matter. oops! Clues!

14 questions remain.

Is it one of those dog things from "The Enemy Within"?

"We were leaving New York this morning and we were checking in at the gate at the airport and the attendant said, 'You must be musicians,' and I said, 'Yes,' and she asked, 'What's the name of your band?,' and I said, 'We're called the Statesmen,' and she said, 'Oh, I've heard of you!'. I think if we'd said, you know, 'We're the Green Egg,' or something, she would have said the same thing." - John Linnell

Well, a horta wouldn't fit in a backpack, so...

Is it sentient?

If I understand the rules correctly, it could be a plant, or even a virus...

Cry "Havoc!" It's the Denevan parasites from "Operation: Annhilate!"

Me too, I was about to say Neural Parasites...

Could it be denevian slime devils? - although they were seen on the school board in DS9...

Q13: I assume it's fairly sentient, this was never discussed to any great extent! Don't expect to have a conversation with one though...

It ain't a neural parasite.

BUT

DING!
Andrew R is close enough with his answer!
The creature in question is a Denebian Slime Devil as mentioned in "The Trouble With Tribbles" and illustarted as a rather bizarre red crouching creature in Shane Johnston's "Worlds of the Federation"

Ah, the mantle is passed once more...

Waitaminute... The Denebian slime devil line was in "Trials and Tribble-ations", also, meaning that they were mentioned in DS9. Also, since the picture came from a book, it's not canon, so there's no way to know if one could fit in a backpack.

I wish somebody would do one of these contests where the clues are actually valid... :-)
