Species 8472 are a powerful alien race native to the Star Trek media but hailing from "Fluidic Space" (a dimension completely different from mainstream reality) and are notable as being one of the few species encountered that were superior to The Borg and were also a race that seemed to favor bio-manipulation rather than technological assimiliation.
Unfortunately Species 8472 were also originally extremely hostile towards non-Borg species as well and it was not until later in the series that this dangerous species finally showed signs of becoming benign towards the Federation.
In the MMO video game, Star Trek Online, it's revealed that the race's true name is The Undine and they have renewed hostility with the life-forms of our galaxy due to the manipulation of the Iconians.
