The surface of Omicron Theta

Omicron Theta was an uninhabited planet in the Omicron Theta planetary system. The planet had two moons. Prior to 2328, the Omicron Theta colony was established on this planet.

Although uninhabited, the colony must had traces of some past activities. In "Silicon Avatar", Raymond Marr's journal mentions archaeological digs to the mountains.

This was the planet on which Dr. Noonian Soong and his wife Juliana perfected the positronic brain and successfully created a series of Soong-type androids including Data and Lore. (TNG: "Datalore", "Silicon Avatar", "Inheritance")

This Earth colony, and the planet, were devastated by the Crystalline Entity in 2338. A distress call was sent from the planet before all life on it was eradicated; the USS Tripoli was the only starship to respond but arrived too late, discovering a lifeless world. However, the Tripoli crew discovered the deactivated Soong-type android Data and reactivated him.

Along with finding the planet to be devoid of life and discovering Data, the Tripoli crew found what they believed were "dormant" plants. An analysis by an away team from the USS Enterprise-D determined that there was no soil bacteria. They also ascertained that Omicron Theta's plants were dead and not dormant. (TNG: "Datalore")

Andrew Probert illustrated a handful of drawings to show how the set for Dr. Soong's lab might look. However, at least one of these concept artworks was labeled "Kiron III," the original name used for the planet. (Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 2, Issue 12, p. 49) (The planet's moniker was also Kiron III in the novelization of "Encounter at Farpoint".)
The planet model for this world was later used to represent Ornara in "Symbiosis".
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), in 2378, Omicron Theta was a Federation member.
