Silica Tare was a ringed class M planet in the Silica Tare star system, Trexelian Sector 001. The garden world was the homeworld of The Green, a sentient plant hive mind, and became a Federation agricultural colony in the mid-23rd century. (ST video game: Trexels)


Silica Tare and its moon.

Silica Tare was described as garden world and was covered by lush purple vegetation, including trees. The planet featured two thin rings and possessed at least one natural satellite of pink color. (ST video game: Trexels)


On stardate 7###.8 (circa 2270), the Federation Starfleet starship USS Trexelprise visited Silica Tare after its survey probe found the planet fertile and suitable for colonization. The probe determined that Silica Tare's highest forms of life were vegetation and insects. A landing party encountered sentient green plant life whose society consisted of a hive mind and who called themselves The Green. The Green attacked the initial survey teams with spores but the captain of the Trexelprise convinced the Green of the Federation's peaceful intentions. The Federation and the Green subsequently entered into an alliance. The Federation dispatched a colonization team right away to construct an agricultural colony on Silica Tare.
