Nagilum was a very powerful extra-dimensional creature. In 2365 he studied the concept of death on the crew of the Enterprise D and planned to kill half the crew in this effort. However, he abandoned this endeavour when Captain Picard threatened to kill his entire crew, via the auto-destruct system, rather than to subject half of his crew to the experiment.

Nausicaans were large aliens renowned for their lack of subtlety and surly, ill-tempered manner. Three Nausicaans were provoked into a fight by a young officer Picard in the Bonestell Recreation Facility at the Farspace Starbase Earhart. One stabbed Picard with a serrated-edge metal sword, severely injuring him and necessitating the implanting of an artificial heart.
