From: Star Trek: The Next Generation
(Played by Michelle Forbes)
Daughter of noted Kaelon scientist Timicin, and the mother of his only grandson. When Dara's elder father was aboard the Enterprise-D in 2367, she visited and implored him to return to Kaelon II and carry out their world's Resolution ritual, which would end his life in the traditional way at "retirement" age. The custom was intended to end the indignity of elderly poverty and decline, but Timicin was just on the verge of developing a process to save their entire world from stellar catastrophe.
