Tellar Prime (Tellar) was the inhabited prime planet in its star system. This was the homeworld of the Tellarites, a warp-capable humanoid species.

In 2155, representatives from Tellar took part in talks on Earth to form a Coalition of Planets. In 2161, Tellar became a founding member of the United Federation of Planets. (ENT: "Demons", "Zero Hour")

Relative to the planetoid Babel, Tellar was located on the far side of the Andorian Empire. (ENT: "Babel One")

Good arguments were considered a sport on Tellar. (ENT: "Bounty")

Following the fall of Betazed during the Dominion War, in 2374, many believed that Tellar could be the Dominion's next target. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

Background information Edit

While conceiving TOS: "Journey to Babel", D.C. Fontana wrote, in a developmental document, "Tellar is a savagely cold planet." The extreme coldness of the planet was intended to account for the Tellarites having lots of fur on their bodies.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts, (pp. 19, 36 & 44) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Tellar (61 Cygni) system was located in the Tellar Sector (Sector 007), a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. The system was a binary system of two K class stars. In the 22nd century, this system was a stop on the Earth trade routes.

According to Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Tellar was a planet orbiting Tellar A (61 Cygni A). The planet had two moons, named Kera and Phinda. Its official name was United Planets of Tellar Prime. Alternative names for this planet were Tellar Prime, Miracht, Pangeos V. The planet's capital was Shirgat. Tellarites were the primary species. In the late 24th century, the planet had a population of 2.3 billion. This planet was warp-capable in 1959.

The Worlds of the Federation reference book (p. 20) states Tellar to be the fifth planet of the 61 Cygni system. It also gives Miracht as an alternative name for the planet and lists two moons called Kehra and Phinda.

The Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual lists the United Planets of 61 Cygni as one of the founding members of the Federation. (citation needededit)
