Sometime prior to 2368, this world was attacked by the Crystalline Entity. Individuals on the planet attempted to seek refuge in tunnels lined with kelbonite, but were still absorbed by the entity. The attack rendered the planet uninhabitable.
Forlat III was one of the eleventh attack sites recorded, and one of the three where settlers took refuge in caves. Dr. Kila Marr examined this planet before the attack on Melona IV in 2368. (TNG: "Silicon Avatar")
