I have a question:  Does anyone know whatever happened to Species 8472?  Could they possibly return, to wreak havoc?

In the end, they were just a wanked out villain of the week.


After Scorpion, they appeared twice. In Prey, the Tony Todd Hirogen killed one just for sport. They appeared in another episode where they were trying to infiltrate Starfleet by posing as them but Janeway convienetly showed up to talk them out of it.


I don't recall any mention of them in any of the novels so presumably they just went back to their realm.

I think that at some point they will bring them back. They were enigmatic and that is  what made them great and unrivaled.

Species 8472 are prominent villains in Star Trek Online, which takes place 2409.


Basic story: they discover what they believe is evidence that people from the Milky Way are preparing to invade fluidic space, and then try to screw up the galaxy so that the Alpha Quadrant species can't do it. They infilitrate numerous galactic powers throughout the Quadrant, provoking the Klingons to invade the Gorn and ultimately declare war against the Federation again.

The Borg had access to the same biogenic weapons Janeway used against them in "Scorpion". Maybe 8472 decided a renewed conflict would be too costly.

Seven of Nine was aware of the enhancements and how they worked, and when Voyager returned from fluidic space she reconnected to the hive mind. So the Collective might have received knowledge of the weaponry before she was disconnected.

I would hope that at some point the apex of biological evolution shows up again.
