First contact art

A drawing of an alien with tentacles

"Immense beings with a hundred tentacles would have difficulty with the turbolift."

A tentacle or tendril was a flexible, elongated organ present in some species of animals or alien life forms.

An alien in Haley's 2151 drawing "First Contact" had tentacles. (ENT: "Breaking the Ice")

The Vendorians were known to have tentacles, as were the Ba'Neth. Kelvans in their natural form were immense beings that had a hundred tentacle-like limbs. (TOS: "By Any Other Name"; TAS: "The Survivor"; VOY: "Riddles")

A symbiotic lifeform which managed to gain access to the NX-class starship Enterprise NX-01 in 2152 snared several crewmembers with tendrils. (ENT: "Vox Sola")

In 2370, Julian Bashir was almost strangled by the tentacle of a metamorphic lifeform, actually a mutated Odo. Bashir injured the creature by cutting its tentacle with a laser scalpel. (DS9: "The Alternate")

In 2373, the tentacle of a creature grabbed Kira Nerys' hand when a serpent worm was delivered to Deep Space 9. (DS9: "A Simple Investigation")
