Comparative xenobiological chart

Exobiology (also called astrobiology or xenobiology) was the biological science concerned with living alien organisms. Exobiology was also taught at Starfleet Academy.

A biologist who specialized in the field of exobiology was referred to as an exobiologist, xenobiologist, or astrobiologist.

The Boy Scouts awarded a merit badge for exobiology in the 22nd century. Malcolm Reed had earned this badge by 2151, while Jonathan Archer had not. (ENT: "Rogue Planet")

Still, Archer had received exobiology training prior to his captaincy of Enterprise NX-01 in 2151, so he knew statistically only one of 43,000 planets supported intelligent life. (ENT: "Fight or Flight")

Data graduated from Starfleet Academy with honors in exobiology in 2345. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "Shades of Gray", "Tin Man")

Prior to becoming joined with Dax in 2367, Jadzia Dax had earned Premier Distinctions in exobiology, zoology, astrophysics and exoarchaeology. (DS9: "Dax")

In 2367, Wesley Crusher topped his class at Starfleet Academy in exobiology, but still struggled with Ancient Philosophies. (TNG: "The Host")

A comparative xenobiological chart was placed in Keiko O'Brien's classroom aboard Deep Space 9 in 2369. (DS9: "A Man Alone", "The Nagus")

When Edward Jellico captained the USS Enterprise-D that year, he ordered to take the secondary distribution grid offline to increase warp coil efficiency. Chief Engineer Geordi La Forge protested since that would shut down the exobiology department, the astrophysics lab and geological research. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I")

In 2375, The Doctor wished to consult a database on exobiology when a cytoplasmic lifeform attached itself to B'Elanna Torres. He instead ended up creating a hologram of Crell Moset (Medical Consultant Program Beta one), a Cardassian exobiologist. (VOY: "Nothing Human")

Later that year, when The Doctor gave Qatai information on how to improve his shields, Qatai commented The Doctor seemed to know a little about everything including exobiology, medicine and shield harmonics. (VOY: "Bliss")

In the retconned material of TNG: "The Neutral Zone", Thomas Raymond was a professor of exobiology. In the remastered version he was a professor of exosociology.
