Izar (or Epsilon Boötis III) is a Class M planet located in the Epsilon Boötis system of the Alpha Quadrant. In 2183, the United Federation of Planets established the Izar colony on the planet's surface, and the planet quickly became a member world, with a predominantly human population.

The LUG RPG module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook states that Izar became a Federation member in 2179.

History and specifics[]

A heavily populated planet with many port facilities, Izar is the third world orbiting Epsilon Boötis, a small orange star.

An early Earth colony, Izar is now completely independent.

Izar's weather is infamous in the Federation for high winds, dust storms and tornadoes, which all occur on a regular basis. As a result most of Izar's settlements are located underground, since Izar is geologically inactive.

Starfleet's Kharicson Training Base is located here, on the continent of Pangaea, whereas New Seattle, the largest city and planetary capital is home to the Izar Institute of Meteorology. (ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation)

The FASA RPG module: The Federation stated that Izar was the system's second planet.

It is located in Starfleet Intelligence sector 1. (FASA RPG module: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

In 2360, Ambassador Curzon Dax had a bottle of aperitif from Izar that he wanted to share with Admiral Nyota Uhura. (TLE novel: Catalyst of Sorrows)

By 2380, the population of Izar reached over 185 million people. (ST reference: Star Charts)
