The entity was capable of interstellar travel at speeds of [[warp drive|warp]] 8 or more<ref>TNG "Datalore"</ref>.  It attacked with rays of an unknown nature that completely destroyed organic matter<ref>TNG "Silicon Avatar"</ref>, somehow extracting the energy for the entity's use.  It was capable of stripping a planet of all organic material over the course of several hours.  Data speculated that mineral ores containing refractory metals might provide protection, and a few colonists found refuge in a cave lined with such minerals during one of the entity's attacks, but Dr. Kila Marr -- who studied the entity extensively -- suspected that it spared the colonists to avoid harming [[Data]], mistaking him for [[Lore]], who had collaborated with it in its attack on [[Omicron Theta]].
