The Phylosians were a sentient plant species native to the planet Phylos. They had tentacles that were damp, green and leaf-like. The Phylosians are members of the Federation. (TAS episode: "The Infinite Vulcan", TAS episode: "The Time Trap" , ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation)
- The novelization of the episode (shown in Log Two) characterized the species as having no similarities to that of Humans or Vulcans, except in size.
As a people, they intended on enforcing peace on the galaxy. These plans were delayed by the arrival of a Human Augment scientist named Stavos Keniclius in the 21st century. The bacteria strain he brought, staphylococcus, nearly wiped out the Phylosians. He stayed on the planet to assist them.
With the help of Keniclius' fifth clone, Stavos Keniclius 5, they were going to try again in the 23rd century, but were dissuaded by Spock 2, the giant Spock clone. (TAS episode: "The Infinite Vulcan")
Mot considered Phylosian space as a possible (and incorrect) destination for Jean-Luc Picard and Data, who Mot gave Romulan hairpieces to in 2368. Mot ruled out the Phylosians, describing them as "vanquished". (TNG novelization: Unification)
In 2407, the Phylosians were struck by a mysterious plague of unknown origins. Starfleet promptly sent medical teams, who found the task of finding a cure to be difficult due to the Phylosians' strange physiology. (STO novel: The Needs of the Many)
