In 2366, Lieutenant Commander Data suggested modifying the circuitry in the universal translator to make it capable of communications with nanites who had evolved and developed a collective intelligence. (TNG: "Evolution")

While formulating an escape after becoming trapped in a turbolift with Lwaxana Troi in 2369, Troi caught Odo glancing at an exposed circuit in the corner of the lift's floor, wondering to himself how many volts were running through it. (DS9: "The Forsaken")
