'''Ian Andrew Troi II''' was an [[alien]] entity who wished to experience [[Human]] existence. In the form of a glowing white light, he entered into [[Deanna Troi]] and began his Human experience as a fetus. Troi stated that a glowing white light impregnated her while she was asleep. Dr. [[Katherine Pulaski]] confirmed that the fetus would reach full term within 36 hours. He was born in early [[2365]] and named after Deanna's father, [[Ian Andrew Troi]].

At first Troi did not realize that Ian was an alien. [[Jean-Luc Picard]] was initially worried that the child could present a danger, but he appeared to be completely harmless. He grew from an infant to an eight-year old in one day. At the same time, a plasma plague put everyone on the ship in danger.

Ian turned out to be the source of the radiation. When the young boy realized this, he decided to sacrifice his life to save the crew. As Troi looked on, Ian died, but not before he told her that he was the alien and that he wanted to experience the Human life cycle including death. His body reverted to its original state and left the ship, but not before he had experienced Humanity, and Troi had experienced the joy and sadness of parenthood. ({{TNG|The Child}})

For Deanna Troi's father, please see Ian Andrew Troi.

Ian Andrew Troi II was the name given to an intelligent spaceborne alien in the 24th century.

The alien's natural form was a glowing white light that lived in space. It was able to penetrate a starship's hull in order to observe the inside. However, it could also take humanoid form by impregnating an individual and being born. When the alien did this, it had a very short gestation period, and grew extremely rapidly. Even as a humanoid child, it retained its memory. The alien also emitted Eichner radiation naturally.

In 2365, it wished to experience a Human existence after happening to pass by the USS Enterprise-D. It decided to impregnate Deanna Troi, becoming a half-Human, half-Betazoid male baby after a thirty-six hour term. Deanna named him after her father, Ian Andrew Troi. He grew from an infant to an eight-year old in one day. During this time, he enjoyed his tactile senses, even when burning his fingers.

Unfortunately, Ian's presence turned out to be harmful to the crew. The radiation he gave off was causing an on-board container of a plasma plague to fail, putting everyone on the ship in danger. He then decided to leave the Enterprise by dying. In doing so, he returned to his natural form. (TNG: "The Child")

Ian was part of Commander William T. Riker's memories while being infected on the surface of Surata IV and treated in sickbay. (TNG: "Shades of Gray")

In Deanna Troi's personnel file, Ian was mentioned as her offspring. (TNG-R: "Conundrum")

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

Ian Troi was played by R.J. Williams, at age 4 by Zachary Benjamin, and by Josh Bell as an infant.

Influenced by the character of Ian Troi, a similar alien was briefly considered as a main character of Star Trek: Voyager, which was said to be born and then "matures rapidly." (A Vision of the Future - Star Trek: Voyager, p. 178)

Apocrypha Edit

In the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy, Troi's attempts to conceive with Captain Riker after the two transfer to the Titan are hampered because carrying Ian caused previously-undetected damage to her reproductive system due to the unique radiation he generated. However, this damage is treated by the Caeliar, a highly-advanced race, resulting in Troi successfully carrying her daughter to full term.
