Moore was a Human corn farmer from Broken Bow, Oklahoma, in the 22nd century.

In 2151, Moore shot and seriously wounded Klaang, a Klingon courier, with a plasma rifle, after Klaang crashed his vessel on Moore's land while attempting to evade two Suliban soldiers. Klaang was subsequently transported to Starfleet Medical in San Francisco, setting into motion a series of events which led to the launch of the Enterprise NX-01 and the beginning of its historic mission of exploration. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

Farmer Moore was played by Ron King.
Farmer Moore was named after writer Ronald D. Moore, who had written many Klingon episodes during his time with Star Trek. ("Broken Bow" text commentary, ENT Season 1 DVD)
The character is not named in the script of "Broken Bow", which simply refers to him as a farmer. The same script also characterizes him as "middle-aged". Although the episode does not establish whether Moore had viewed any other aliens prior to his encounter with Klaang, the script specifies of Moore, "He's never seen an alien before." [1]
