The USS Enterprise crew meets the non-corporeal lifeform Sargon

A receptacle was a spherical device which could house the disembodied consciousness of a corporeal lifeform.

In 2268, the entities Sargon, Thalassa, and Henoch were in a subterranean cave on Arret, stored in receptacles, three of a group of survivors of a cataclysmic war. The other entities had long since fled their receptacles. (TOS: "Return to Tomorrow")

In an alternative use of the term, Ambassador Ves Alkar transferred his negative energy to victims that he called "receptacles." (TNG: "Man of the People")
