Terra Prime was a xenophobic organization based on Luna in the 22nd century, that advocated the removal of all extraterrestrials from Earth and the Sol system in general. Before the Xindi attack in 2153 the movement had been losing supporters, but after the attack they began growing again; eventually reaching a point where they worried Prime Minister Nathan Samuels, a former member himself.

Sometime prior to the 2130s, an 18 year old Nathan Samuels joined Terra Prime out of hatred for alien species when a Denobulan pilot was involved in the death of his father. He later renounced the organization and made a great effort to distance himself from it.

In 2151, Terra Prime made a small fuss about the launch of Enterprise but their influence was not important enough to be noteworthy or to affect the launch. Lieutenant Malcolm Reed would later remember hearing of them, but not giving them much thought.

In 2155, they were led by John Frederick Paxton, who would lead Terra Prime on a daring raid in which they took over Mars' Verteron Array and used it to threaten Earth by saying that if all non-Humans didn't leave the system immediately they would fire on Starfleet Command. Fortunately, the crew of the Enterprise was able to defeat Terra Prime and redirect the verteron beam into the Pacific Ocean and Paxton was taken into custody.

With the establishment of the Coalition of Planets, and later the United Federation of Planets, Terra Prime's goal of an isolated, "Humans-only" Earth would never be realized.

Alternate universes[]

In one alternate universe, Terra Prime was successful in its attack on Starfleet Command, leading to a period of isolationism on Earth that lasted into the mid-23rd century, where their symbol continued to be a symbol of anti-alien feelings.
