A Horta

Janus VI is a geologically inactive F-class planet and the homeworld of the Horta species. The planet has no atmosphere and is rich in subterranean mineral resources.

It was colonized by Humans in the 2210s, although official contact with the silicon-based natives only happened more than 50 years later. After some conflicts caused by the Humans inadvertently destroying the Horta's eggs and the Horta attacking the colony in revenge, peace was eventually achieved with the help of the USS Enterprise crew, after Mr. Spock manages to contact the Horta by telepathic means and the two races agree to peacefully inhabit the planet.
