Philana was the wife of Parmen, leader of the Platonians. Like the other Platonians, she possessed psychokinetic powers. She was born on the planet Sahndara in 33 BC. The couple married when she was 117 years old. She stopped aging when she was thirty years old.

Philana was the product of a mass eugenics program on the planet Sahndara. She was bred for contemplation, self-reliance, and longevity. The number of individuals generated by the program was pared down to thirty-eight. Before the planet's star went nova, this group resettled on Earth where they were exposed to the Greek civilization. When this civilization died, they moved on to Platonius where they founded their republic.

In 2268, Philana requested medical treatment for her husband Parmen, who was dying from a leg wound. The USS Enterprise responded, and McCoy saved her husband's life. (TOS: "Plato's Stepchildren")

Philana was played by Barbara Babcock.
