The Omicron Theta Colony was located on the planet Omicron Theta in the distant Omicron Theta system. It was established in the early 24th century as a completely self-sufficient colony with a primacy focus on the sciences. Of the 411 colonists who lived at the colony before its destruction, Dr. Noonian Soong remains the best known.
The former Earth colony was entirely destroyed by the Crystalline Entity in 2336. The Soong-type android Data was found deactivated on this planet by the crew of the USS Tripoli, which was the only ship to respond to the colony's distress call. 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.
