Looking for information about an alien deviceEdit
I am looking for information about an alien device that was used to remove Nelix's lungs in an episode of Voyager. I do not know the episode title or the race of aliens that used the device. If the information is available in Memory Alpha, I would appreciate a keyword or link to find it.

- From lung:
- In 2371, both of Neelix's lungs were removed by a group of Vidiians. Unable to create artificial lungs, The Doctor had to use a blood-gas infuser, cytoplasmic stimulator and an isotropic restraint in combination with his newly created holographic organ replacement in order to keep him alive. Later, one of Kes' lungs was altered and transplanted into Neelix by the Vidiians. (VOY: "Phage")

- I just added information about the Vidiian device to the Technology section of that species' page. I'm surprised we don't have an article about it. I don't suppose it has a canonical name? What would be a suitable name for it, if not? Vidiian harvest device? And, Phoenix, there's a picture of it here: http://voy.trekcore.com/gallery/albums/1x05/Phage_181.jpg --TribbleFurSuit 02:30, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks guys. This really helps. As I recall, the Vidiians call what they do 'harvesting' so the name for the device would probably be what they would call it.
