...or it could have been the worm at the bottle of Tequilla.... who cares? It gave the story a way of having Pike give up the goods, without being a traitor. (Note: did they ever say they got the critter out of him?)

No they didn't, but they also didn't really make it clear it had paralysed him until we saw him in the wheelchair either.

I think.

I thought he was injured and in the wheel chair because of other things Nero may had done to him.

The Slugs do explain that I guess.

And we can assume Pike had his excised?

Um, I thought the bug was clearly the same thing, or at least related, to the thing Khan used in TWOK--the designs are very similar, and the description of what they do was almost identical.

The things in "Conspiracy" actually exerted their own control over the victims, where as these things just make people susceptible to suggestion.

I'm not sure the creatures are the same - but the scene sure reminded me of "Wrath of Khan".
Yeah. with Paul Winfield.

Ah. just saying it looked exactly like the insect in TNG. Just as my thought, even if it's similar to what Khan used!

wedestroymyths is correct,

they are beyond doubt the creatures used to control Chekov and Terrill in WRAITH OF KAHN.
Nero even says where they are from.
the "Conspiracy" invaders - a storyline that was never touched on again for some bizarre reason - are a completely different species.
no TNG reference here.

HAHA!!

Who saw the redshirt joining Kirk and Sulu and immediately thought "He's dead!" ?
