Schematic of a bioplasmic organism

A bioplasmic organism was a type of organism that was bioplasm-based. They were an extremely long-lived species, with lifespans ranging from "several millennia" to two hundred thousand years.

A large bioplasmic space-dwelling lifeform, dubbed the "telepathic pitcher plant", was encountered by the USS Voyager in 2375. It attracted starships into its digestive tract so it could consume them. It achieved that by emitting a powerful neurogenic field that telepathically fooled their crews into believing their greatest desires are granted, and even created false sensor readings to match, so they won't detect what it really was. (VOY: "Bliss", "Inside Man", "Shattered")

Bevvox, the founder of the Think Tank, was another type of bioplasmic organism, encountered by Voyager several weeks later. (VOY: "Think Tank")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 92), on stardate 52580, Voyager encountered this organism.
