There was a Deep Space Nine episode where an itty-bitty universe crashed into the station (or similar scenario). They didn't just destroy it because there were "life signs" inside. There was that Madeleine L'Engle book the title of which I don't recall where mitochondria were sentient.

I'm pretty sure it was "A Wind in the Door". I read and loved the books, as well. There's also another book, "Many Waters", that goes along with the other three, though it focuses on relatively minor characters from the other novels.
