Meet the rat of installer space, this mid sized pest has what might be termed a variable body make up. The organs float in a silicon based suspension loosely moving through its armored body. The creature is an energy vampire sustaining itself mostly through solar energy & particle collection. 
Its not enough in fact there is no enough when it comes to these creatures. 
They're method of operation is simple, hang in space in ball form in a type of hibernation & as  a space ship or asteroid passes by uncurl & ride the solar weather. 
They easily adapt to atmosphere conditions by altering themselves to having a primitive breathing apparatus to whatever conditions they find.  Then its simply a matter of finding the nicest warm body to lay their eggs in. In 1d4 rounds the eggs will begin to gestate & the victim becomes highly suggestible to telepathic projection.That is unless the victim makes a save vs . The worm becomes a the guiding intelligence & begins its next stage a slow exposure to the nearest energy source. 
 The eggs will hatch within a 1d6 hour period & the chitterlings will consume any organic tissue & liquid for building part of their armor. Any victims left alive will fling themselves out into space where the little one will tear itself away from the body for the freedom of space. 

In many civilized ports a bath of  anti protons is required to destroy the monsters. Ships will have to pay a 300 credit bathing fee as the monsters take 1d6 points  each round exposed to the protonic inversion. 
This is a highly invasive & aggressive species, numerous interstellar governments are on the war path to wipe out this monsters.  All attempts have been unsuccessful.. So far.. 
Carrying these monsters willful in cargo  has a fine of no less then 700 credits & loss of commercial galactic license. Terrorists & certain pirate bands are known to make use of their telepathic properties though.
