A Horta, the first silicon based lifefrom discovered

A Silicon-based lifeform is corporeal lifeform based on silicon rather than the more typical carbon.

Silicon based life was thought to be little more than scientific fantasy until 2267 when first contact was made with the silicon based Horta species. (TOS episode: "The Devil in the Dark", DS9 novels: Devil in the Sky, The Heart of the Warrior)
