Tellar Prime (also called simply Tellar) is an inhabited planet in the 61 Cygni system. It orbits a pair of binary, K-class, stars.

Located in the Alpha Quadrant, it is the homeworld of the Tellarites, a warp-capable humanoid species.

According to star charts, this planet's location is on the far side of the Andorian Empire.

The surface of Tellar is noted for being unusually dry, and for having an inactive climate. While it is sunny most of the time, at all locations, the light and dry atmosphere do not trap heat sufficiently. This means that temperatures remained cool for many years. A lack of surface water means that little water evaporates into the air, thus depriving any possibility of rainfall - helping the planet to stay dry and calm. Instead, sea water flows through a network of subterranean caverns, collecting inland into vast underground reservoirs. This naturally ensures that the water is filtered out of any impurities, filling the underground reserves with fresh, drinkable water.



The planet's capital city is Shirgat.

Good arguments are considered a sport on Tellar, and the Tellarites are known for enjoying arguing, and for not respecting someone who will not argue with them.

In the late 24th century, the planet had a recorded population of 2.3 billion.
