Luisa Kim was the biosphere designer of the terraforming station Velara Base on the planet Velara III. She was assigned, with three other terraformers, to this station by Terraform Command in 2360. She self-described herself as the "Gardener of Edens." Counselor Deanna Troi described Kim as possessing a highly abstracted reality with lovely visions and little data.
Kim was later upset to learn that their attempt to create a new world was in fact destroying the habitat of an indigenous lifeform dubbed "microbrain", and of it being excluded from the other team members' original findings. (TNG: "Home Soil")
