The Omicron Theta Colony, also known as the Omicron Theta Outpost, was a Federation colony located on the planet Omicron Theta in the remote Omicron Theta star system. It was established before 2328 as a completely self-sufficient colony with a primacy focus on the sciences, although there were also farms. Of the 411 colonists who lived at the colony before its destruction, Dr. Noonian Soong remains the best known.
The former colony was entirely destroyed by the Crystalline Entity in 2338. The Soong-type android Data was found deactivated on this planet by the crew of the USS Tripoli, which was alerted to the colony by a signal sent by a signal device. Data was programmed with the journal entries of the various colonists, the intent being that they would provide him with a reference for social behavior.
In 2364, the remains of the colony were revisited by the USS Enterprise-D. There was an extensive facility hidden by the colonists before they perished. The laboratory of Dr. Soong and another android, Lore, were found. (TNG: "Datalore")
