Kestra Troi (2329-2336) was the first child of Lwaxana Troi and Ian Andrew Troi.


Being half-Human and half-Betazoid, it was unclear whether she would develop full telepathic abilities. She died from drowning in Lake El-Nar on Betazed at the age of six years old, several months after the birth of her younger sister Deanna Troi.

After her death, her mother had a bizarre reaction to her grief, and attempted to wipe the girl's existence from her memory. Her father Ian accepted this for a time but planned to confront her in 2343. However, he died before he could do so. Lwaxana subsequently fired her valet, Mr. Xelo, for keeping some evidence of Kestra's life. (TLE novel: The Art of the Impossible)

The truth about Kestra would not become known to Deanna until 2370, when a telepathic encounter with the Cairn unlocked the supressed memories within Lwaxana's mind. (TNG episode: "Dark Page")

In 2372, Lwaxana told Odo about Kestra, saying "I lost my parents, a sister, a husband… but nothing, nothing compared to losing her". (DS9 episode: "The Muse")

In 2380, Deanna Troi named a star Kestra in honor of her sister. (TTN novel: Orion's Hounds)

Some time in the 2380s decade, Deanna named her and William T. Riker's daughter Kestra Troi-Riker. (PIC episode: "Nepenthe")
