Automated Personnel Units (APU) were a type of android constructed in the Delta Quadrant.
Around the early 23rd Century, both the Pralor and the Cravic constructed APUs to fight their war. When the two races reached a peace agreement, they decided to deactivate their APUs. Sensing a threat to their existence, the APUs destroyed their creators then resumed the war they were programmed to fight.
However, the Pralor and the Cravic had designed their APUs with a unique power module that only they could produce. The APU, now free of their creators, could no longer "reproduce". In 2372, B'Elanna Torres of the U.S.S. Voyager considered giving the Pralor APUs technology to reproduce themselves, but ultimately destroyed her work in order to not shift the balance of power between both sides.
- “Sakari System Patrol”: In response to a distress call sent by Talaxian freighter Captain Gnex, the player encounters Pralor and Cravic Automated Personnel Units, who both claim cargo with technology enabling them to reproduce themselves. The player can side with either side or none at all, destroying the cargo.
