Shilat was a Kantare male and crewmember aboard a Kantare supply ship.
When the ship crash landed due to an ion storm in 2129 on a planet, Shilat was able to escape aboard an escape pod.
Ezral later created a holographic recreation of Shilat to keep his daughter company.
The deceased body of Shilat was found aboard the escape pod in 2151 by the crew of Enterprise NX-01. (ENT: "Oasis")
