Bio-Neural Gel Pack
Bio-neural gel packs are the latest advance in computer systems. Starfleet has employed them in the Intrepid class starships. The gel packs consist of traditional Isolinear interface and a package of gel that contains artificial fibers that resemble human neurons. These fibres are capable of forming billions of connections, creating a complex computer system.
The gel packs are designed to use fuzzy logic, or best guess, when processing data making them very similar to how living organisms operate. Calculations that traditional Isolinear chip are incapable of solving, are easily guessed with the gel packs. The primary function of the gel packs aboard a Starship is to perform optimal fuel and warp calculations. The gel packs are also able to form sentient holograms because of their artificial neural system.
Because the gel packs are made of organic material, they can become infected with traditional virus and bacteria, but are treatable by standard human medical procedures
