Izar (or Epsilon Boötis III) is a Class M planet located in the Epsilon Boötis 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.
- The Last Unicorn Games RPG book All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook states that Izar bcame a Federation member in 2179.
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.
