Comparative xenobiological chart

Exobiology (also called astrobiology or xenobiology) is the biological science concerned with living alien organisms. (DS9: "Time's Orphan") Exobiology was also a course taught at Starfleet Academy. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "The Host")

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

Data graduated from Starfleet Academy with honors in exobiology in 2345. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "Datalore", "The Measure Of A Man", "Tin Man")

The sub-discipline known as comparative xenobiology is the scientific study of the physiological features of various alien lifeforms (see comparative xenobiological chart).

On Starbase 515, an exobiology research division was located in room 03-1444. (TNG: "Samaritan Snare")

Lieutenant Jadzia Dax had a Premier Distinction in exobiology. (DS9: "Dax")

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

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")

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.
