Izar - Class M - United Federation of Planets
Location: Alpha Quadrant
Dominant Species: Human
Population: 185 million
Capital: New Seattle
Izar (or Epsilon Bootis III) is a Class M planet located in the Epsilon Bootis system of the Alpha Quadrant. In 2183, the United Federation of Planets established the Izar colony on the planet's surface, and the planet quickly became a member world, with a predominantly human population. A heavily populated planet with many port facilities Izar is the third world orbiting Epsilon Bootis, a small orange star.
An early Earth colony, Izar is now completely independent. Izar's weather is infamous in the Federation for high winds, dust storms and tornadoes, which all occur on a regular basis. As a result most of Izar's settlements are located underground, since Izar is geologically inactive. Starfleet's Kharicson Training Base is located here, on the continent of Pangaea, whereas New Seattle, the largest city and planetary capital is home to the Izar Institute of Meteorology.
By 2380, the population of Izar reached over 185 million people.
In 2183, the United Federation of Planets starship SS Horizon landed on the planet. Soon after, a colony was founded on this planet and, subsequently, was admitted into the United Federation of Planets. The colony was governed from the capital New Seattle, and there were 185 million humans living on the planet. Major attractions included the Starfleet Tactical School and the Izar Institute of Meteorology. This planet was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
