Roy the fly

A holographic fly

A fly was a type of winged insect. On Earth, they were known as pests that sometimes carried diseases. Means of trapping and/or killing flies include such household tools as fly swatters and flypaper.

A creature resembling a fly landed on the entrails of Kol-Sha after he was killed. (DIS: "Point of Light")

The remains of these insects could be preserved in the resin amber. In early 2365, in his log, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-D described his situation in the void as being "... like a fly in amber trapped." (TNG: "Where Silence Has Lease")

When Berlinghoff Rasmussen came aboard the Enterprise in 2368, he wanted to be not taken notice of, just like a fly on the wall. (TNG: "A Matter of Time")

When Sito Jaxa suggested that it would be good to be a spider under the table of the observation lounge, Sam Lavelle compared this to be a fly on the wall. They were talking about the meeting of the senior staff in the observation lounge and were curious what they were talking about. (TNG: "Lower Decks")

Doctor Tolian Soran once stated that there was a time when he wouldn't hurt a fly, and then the Borg came, destroyed his homeworld, and showed him that the one constant in the whole universe was death. (Star Trek Generations)

Roy was a holographic fly created by Doctor Lewis Zimmerman in the 2370s for Starfleet Intelligence as a new form of micro-surveillance on the "Trojan Horse Project". When his mission was complete, Dr. Zimmerman kept him around on Jupiter Station as a pet. He nonetheless often landed on The Doctor's food. (VOY: "Life Line")
