A terraformer was a type of scientist who was responsible for the various techniques and processes in terraforming a planet.

According to Deanna Troi, "Terraformers are often obsessive. It frequently goes with the career profile." (TNG: "Home Soil")

Jadzia Dax's description of a terraformer described that "you can't tell them anything. It's a talent bringing dead worlds to life, but humility and common sense aren't part of the job description." In Gideon Seyetik's description, he announced that "a great terraformer needs the green thumb of a gardener, the eye of a painter, and the soul of a poet," also adding, "and it doesn't hurt to be a raging egomaniac." (DS9: "Second Sight")
