The properly unidentified Aliens was first encountered by the Borg in 2373 in the Delta Quadrant. Species 8472 is not like any other organic specie because they come from a realm why there is only bio-matter and fluid. They are able to enter normal space by entering a spatial anomaly known as a Quantum Singularity. They have a cold hatred for those in normal space they pose a threat to all races. The Borg waged war with this specie when they entered their space. What the Borg didn't know is that Species 8472 has one of the most powerful immune systems and that any micro scoping organism that penetrates their bodies is instantly destroyed including Nano-probes that's why its impossible to assimilate them. They are impervious to 24th Century Technology (tractors, transport and sensors).
Purpose in the Game
When the Federation is battling the Borg in the Delta Quadrant the third federation fleet is attacked by Species 8472. The Borg-Federation alliance formed a considerable threat to the species near the end of the game.
The Borg Queen and her fleet are stuck in the Alpha Quadrant and she is unable to contact the rest of the collective. They have located species 8472 flooding into the Alpha Quadrant. While there determination to reach the Delta Quadrant is clear they are being blocked constantly. The Borg, Klingon Empire and the Federation are being attacked by these vessels.
The Cardassians make a device known as a Quantum Singularity that brings Species 8472 into normal space.
