Junior was the unofficial name for the cosmozoan lifeform the USS Enterprise-D encountered en-route to Doctor Leah Brahms' scheduled stop at the Guemica outpost. Junior was a member of the Gekli species. The entity had been born motherless in the Alpha Omicron system in 2367 and mistook the energy signature of the Galaxy-class starship as a feeding source. This apellation was coined by chief engineer Geordi La Forge, but was quickly overruled by Captain Picard. "Junior" was also the subject of discussion between La Forge and Montgomery Scott, as they shared engineer stories. (TNG episodes: "Galaxy's Child", "Relics", STO mission: "Fluid Dynamics")
