Brain Slugs are little parasitic slugs that attach themselves to the heads of intelligent beings (such as humans) and control them. They are about as big as a fist, green, translucent and have two feelers and one enormous eye. A person posessed by a brain slug will be likely to speak in a monotone voice and do everything possible to further the spreading of brain slugs throughout the universe. Hermes has been under the control of a brain slug on multiple occasions. It is unclear how he escaped as the crew had no intention of rescuing him.
