Looks like those flying rubber stingrays that attacked Spock in that one episode.

What if cancer was cells gone bad because nobody knew how beautiful they were? I worked in the pathology arena for 10 years; everything that grows in the body of the garden is beautiful.

It looks like the membranes were dissolved, exposing just the organelles & the cytoskeleton, which are creepy by themselves but what we really are.
