The '''Prime Mother''' (also known as the '''All Mother''') was a title in [[Horta]] culture for the single Horta left to care for the Horta race's [[egg]]s at the [[renewal (Horta)|renewal]], a 50,000 yearly self-induced extinction to clear the Horta's [[Janus VI|homeworld]] for the next generation of their species.

In the [[23rd century]] the Horta underwent a renewal which was interrupted when the [[Federation]] established a [[mining]] colony on the Horta's planet. The Prime Mother initially tolerated the [[Human]] presence, however in [[2267]] the miners broke into the Vault of Tomorrow and unwittingly destroyed thousands of eggs. In an effort to protect the eggs the Prime Mother attacked and killed fifty of the miners over three months resulting in the {{USS|Enterprise|NCC-1701}} being called in to investigate. A [[mind meld]] between the [[Vulcan]] [[Spock]] and the Prime Mother eventually resulted in an understanding of what the miners had done and the two races agreeing to work together. The miners came to know this Prime Mother as the [[mother Horta]]. ({{e|TOS|The Devil in the Dark}})
