It was an alien. The earliest Star Trek episodes had stardates in the 1300s, 1500s, 1600s and 1700s. The 1400s are missing. Around stardate 1400, Janice Rand had been part of a landing party exploring a planet when one of the natives leaped onto her head, attaching itself. They hadn't realized at first it was sentient, since it looked nothing like a human being. It instead looked like a beehive hairdo. They were so non-humanoid, Mr. Spock took weeks to try to communicate with it, and Dr. McCoy was unable to successfully extract it. During the weeks they worked on the problem, the alien gradually inserted tendrils into her brain. Finally, around stardate 1500, Spock was able to make contact with it, but by that time it was either unable or unwilling to extract itself from her. But it does agree to try to avoid any harm or interference with her duties. After eight episodes the alien was still attached to Janice Rand's head, so another ship took her to a new assignment at a Starfleet research facility. By the time of The Motion Picture they had gotten the alien removed and sent back to its home planet.

They tried to use their Force powers and technology, but it didn't work well enough in our galaxy and their plans failed.

[[WMG: There's a Human Language too.]]
All the aliens in Star Trek seem to have one language for the entire species, with just some differences between dialects. Why is this?
With the Klingon's it's obvious: they're an empire, what we think of as "the Klingon language" is actually their analogue to Mandarin Chinese - a common tongue for all the provinces. The Andorians? Italian is a constructed language based on various Italic languages, the Andorian Empire could have done something similar. Maybe the Tellarites use their version of Esperanto to communicate? And it's possible that Surak created the Vulcan language, as something like Lojban. All the humans in Star Trek probably have a {{CommonTongue}} as well - maybe a constructed language like Lojban or a majority language like English or Mandarin. I'm guessing it's Lojban and most other species just call it "Human".

... a few episodes and novels have shown or mentioned "subject species" of such empires. But for such powerful empires, we don't see a whole lot of their conquered subjects on-screen. Or do we? All those random alien races we see around the "Star Trek" universe, who are already known to the Federation (as opposed to the new "aliens of the week" who Picard, Janeway, etc. have just discovered), aliens we know are established races in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, but we (the audience) know very little about. Jadzia's ex-boyfriend with the transparent skull. That wonkey-eyed thing who helped deliver baby Kirk in Film/StarTrek2009. That bizarre looking alien female the Doctor disguised as to treat Lewis Zimemrman. Morn, and his former partners in crime. Many if not most of them are from subject species of the Klingon, Romulan or Andorian Empires. Some of the shady characters who do dealings with [[StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Quark]] are individuals who turned to crime to escape a restrictive life as a subject species.

Vaal was the construct of anthropologists living in a nice habitat deep underground, shielded from the Enterprise sensors. When they saw that Kirk was going to be stubborn, they shut off the power, and as soon as the Enterprise left the solar system they turned everything back on again and sat back to watch what happens next.

\n* The main problem with this theory is we have years for the parasite conspiracy's unravelling, the armistice agreement between the Federation and the Cardassians and the formal full peace treaty -- 2364, 2367 and 2370. Three years seems rather sedate for doing something in a rush -- ''however'', there was another devastating blow to Starfleet early in 2367, and if we assume Starfleet hadn't quite sorted out the aftermath of the conspiracy yet...

* This could apply to other names as well. Triskelion is an ancient Celtic symbol. But to the Providers who live on that planet, "Triskelion" translates to "Our Homeworld". In Star Trek V, Sybok says the Andorian word for Paradise is Unpronounceable. Yes, "Unpronounceable" IS the Andorian word for Paradise. Less seriously, Leila in "This Side of Paradise" asks Spock if he has another name. Spock replies, "You couldn't pronounce it." "Youcouldn'tpronounceit" probably isn't his name, but we can't rule out the possibility.
