Kore Soong was a female Human clone who lived during the 21st century. She was the result of a series of genetic experiments of Dr. Adam Soong, a geneticist.

As a result of her being part of a failed cloning experiment, she suffered from a genetic disorder that caused her to be fatally sensitive to sunlight and air pollution. Her "father", worked in an effort to cure her disease. (PIC: "Fly Me to the Moon")

Kore believed that she was actually Adam's daughter, not a clone. She learned the truth however, after doing an internet search about Adam Soong, and learned about his career in genetic engineering. She also learned that she wasn't the first clone: she found many videos on his computer about his previous attempts, all of whom had died. (PIC: "Two of One") After Q provided the cure to her disorder, she confronted Adam about the nature of her existence and his care for her, before ultimately leaving his home. (PIC: "Mercy")

Following the successful launch of the Europa Mission, Kore hacked into her father's computers from a public library, declaring that she was creating a better future for them both and that "this is for my sisters." Kore received a message asking her to come to a park in Los Angeles where she met Wesley Crusher. Wesley explained his occupation as a Traveler of space and time and that he and his fellow Travelers dispatched supervisors to help ensure the proper flow of time. Wesley described how he and his colleagues watched and protected all of time and space and offered Kore two paths forward: a path to a perfectly normal life or a path to "everything else" which offered Kore a chance to give her life purpose and meaning although he couldn't guarantee her safety. Kore accepted Wesley's offer and joined the Travelers. (PIC: "Farewell")

Soong was played by Isa Briones.
"Kore" is an Ancient Greek word meaning "girl", and was also a name for the goddess Persephone.
