Antidean brain mites

A rare neurological infection caused by a small insect native to Antidea. Symptoms include headaches and blurred vision. The USS Columbia responded to an outbreak of Antidean brain mites in the Oakland Sector in late 2399.

Bendii Syndrome

A degenerative neurological illness affecting a small portion of the elderly Vulcan population. Symptoms include a gradual loss of emotional and telepathic control. Consequently, rampant emotions can be projected to others telepathically. The symptoms can be muted through mind melds, but there is no cure for the disease.


A genetically engineered retrovirus covertly designed by Velora scientists to seek out and destroy any impurities that might pose a threat to the stability of the Velora genome. The blight is forcefully administered to all species that come into direct contact with the Velora. The virus immediately kills any individual that poses a threat to the Velora genome; both Vulcans and Betazoids are highly susceptible. Meanwhile, those that survive the blight are often forced into servitude. In 2397, the Velora attempted to engineer a more lethal strain of the blight. They intended to test the newer strain of the retrovirus on the populace of Forcas III, however the plan was halted by Federation forces in its earliest stages. Despite the brutality of these campaigns, existence of the blight amongst the general Velora populace was kept to a minimum for decades, until Velora Prime Minister Vallis brought an end to the blight in early 2399.

Cylurian plague

A disease that typically affects Cardassians. Sarah Hartman was studying the plague in May 2398.

Entei's Syndrome

A potent disease that affects cats and dogs. There is no known cure or treatment for the disease. In July 2398, Cleo succumbed to Entei's Syndrome.


An imperfection in the eye that causes an inability to focus on near objects; the defect is more commonly known as far-sightedness.

Imolean flu

A common ailment known to exist on several planets in the Beta Quadrant. It can be easily treated with a single dose of therazine. Sarah Hartman devoted much of her time studying the disease.

Irumodic Syndrome

A degenerative medical disorder that elicits progressive degeneration of the synaptic pathways in the brain, causing senility and eventually death. Peridaxon can be used in tandem with other medications to prolong the life of the patient, but there is no cure to the disease. A cortical regeneration procedure developed by a Vulcan Doctor named Bentic has been known to make patients more susceptible to Irumodic Syndrome.

Livathi flu

A fairly common infection that affects cats and dogs, normally contracted after the animal is bitten by a small woodland insect in the livathidae family. The infection can lie dormant for years before symptoms appear. It is easily treated with unefrazine.

Temporal Shock Syndrome

A medical condition sometimes triggered by extensive time travel. Symptoms include nausea and dizziness, and extreme cases (though rare) can result in death. Chronozine can easily counter the ill effects of temporal shock syndrome.

Tevorian plague

A relatively minor infection that occasionally appears on planets in the Beta Quadrant. There are numerous treatments available to mute the disease's many symptoms, but most doctors agree the best course of action is simply to let the infection run its course. A minor outbreak of the plague was reported on Defornath VII in early 2399, but was quickly contained.

Zudurian Scourge

An extremely potent, contagious ailment. Among its most notable symptoms are a series of excruciating convulsions. The ailment has been known to severely afflict Vulcans, while Ka'Tulans are immune.
