8472 by CubieJ 8472 by CubieJ
If you recognize that number, you might be a Trekkie. :XD:

Species 8472 are malevolent alien creatures who show up several (three, to be exact) times in Voyager's travels. I re-watched "Scorpion" today, which is one of my favourite Voyager episodes (my favourite is "Unimatrix Zero", if you were wondering. xD YAY FOR SEVEN.), so I thought I'd draw a Species 8472, just for fun. n_n And then I remembered how much I like to invoke blasphemy against nature, so I made one of the darkest, most dangerous creatures in the galaxy CHIBI. YEAH.

Species 8472 is not amused. D:

BUT HURRAY FOR STAR TREK FANART!

I wouldn't go so far as calling them malevolent. Who wouldn't be pissed if you were in your own galaxy minding your own buisness and a band of crazy-assed cyborgs invaded your home and tried to make your species one of their own without your consent? Wouldn't you come out kicking ass and taking names? :)

If Species 8472 looked like this and decided to invade OUR universe...

Not sure if they'd win. Considering how many chibi-fans would immediately set out to hunt them all down and cuddle them to death.

Very Cute.

Also, I'm actually glad they never gave 8472 an actual race name (okay, ST Online gave them one, but unlike SW, anything outside the Tv series is not canon.) It actually makes them more memorable in my mind. Its not another race name that you'll never remember. Its a number...that will kill you the instant it find you :P

rofl. I'm not a Trekkie but I love Voyager and 8472 were my favorite aliens in that series. "Scorpion" and "Prey" were pretty dang awesome. "In the Flesh" I really disliked because...well, they were awesome when they were the most powerful aliens in the universe and I hated seeing them...well, lose some of their awesome. Alas.

But this is funny. So chibi. So adorable.

...It's Nitrous Oxide from Crash Team Racing! =D Only he's purple!
*yes, I'm a nerd, but of a different tribe of nerd!*

Awww, somehow you succeeded in making the darkest, most dangerous species in the galaxy cute in your chibi. XD I wonder what would happen if you tried to Chibify a Tribble?

Making a tribble chibi would likely cause peoples' brains to explode from a cuteness overload X3

Ahahaha. XDD If I did draw Nitrous Oxide, he probably WOULD be purple, because... I like to draw purple things. .__.
Nerds unite! :3

And if I tried to chibify a tribble, the universe would most certainly implode. It's just not possible.

8472 is just one of those numbers I don't forget. xD It's permanently glued to my brain. *strokes Sokka-type beard*

The only thing I remember about "In the Flesh" is that Chakotay had to make out with one of them... YEAH, FUN TIMES. DEF NOT SCARRED FOR LIFE.

When 8472 was introduced, they were the bad-ass "The weak will perish" of the universe. Then "In the flesh" started and they were like, "we have to plot a sneaky invasion of earth so starfleet won't attack poor, innocent us!" :roll:

Have you ever read Terry Pratchett's "Lord's and Ladies?" I would like to see a Star Trek species with that kind of personality. :evillaugh:
