Cypripedium orchid

An orchid capable of rapid plant movement

For the weapon, please see orchid (weapon).

An orchid was a type of flowering plant found on several planets.

Both the Vulcan Tuvok and the Talaxian Neelix sometimes bred orchids, which Neelix identified as something the two of them had in common. (VOY: "Tattoo")

Tuvok once grafted a South American orchid from Earth to a favinit plant from Vulcan, creating a hybrid that was stronger than either species had been individually. (VOY: "Alliances")

In 2372, USS Voyager personnel discovered several dozen types of orchids on a planet in the Delta Quadrant. At least one of the species had symbiogenetic properties, causing a transporter accident that merged Neelix and Tuvok into a single being, known as Tuvix. (VOY: "Tuvix")

The Betazoid Lon Suder, while confined to his quarters, successfully created a new breed of orchid. He named it the Tuvok orchid after his mentor. (VOY: "Basics, Part I")

The android Dahj Asha, recalling memories of childhood as the Human daughter of a xenobotanist, told Jean-Luc Picard that her childhood home was "full of orchids", and that her father created a yellow and pink hybrid orchid species, Orchidaceae Dahj oncidium, which he had named after her. She would later have orchids in her apartment in Greater Boston. (PIC: "Remembrance")
