Character Bio

Doctor Farallon photo
Dr. Farallon was a Tyran scientist and inventor of the particle fountain.

The particle fountain was a new mining technology totally different than any existing mining technology. To explore the possibilities the particle fountain project was started which Dr. Farallon supervised.

A few years before field testing commenced, she experimented with modified industrial servo mechanisms which she called Exocomps. The devices not only replicated tools, but had problem solving capabilities. She thought these would help to complete the project more quickly.

In 2369 Dr. Farallon assisted Lieutenant Commander La Forge of the starship USS Enterprise-D to perform an evaluation of the particle fountain project. The Federation was interested to use a particle fountain on Carema III. When there were problems with the new mining system, Farallon used the exocomps to repair the mining systems.

However Lieutenant Commander Data discovered the exocomps were alive. At first she refused to believe Data, but after it was determined that they were, she agreed not to exploit the exocomps.

Dr. Farallon was a great admirer of Doctor Noonien Soong and made an extensive study of his positronic network design.
