Samuel Boma was a human scientist in the 23rd century.

In the 2260s, Boma was a lieutenant in Starfleet and served in the sciences division aboard the USS Enterprise as an astrophysicist.

In 2266, Boma accompanied a fifteen-man survey team to Tlaoli IV. (TOS - The Janus Gate novel: Present Tense)

In 2267, Boma was assigned to accompany Commander Spock and a scientific party to study the Murasaki 312 quasar aboard the shuttlecraft Galileo. During the survey the Galileo crashlanded on the planet Taurus II, and the party were forced to fight for survival and return to the Enterprise. During the course of the mission Boma openly defied Spock's command. (TOS episode: "The Galileo Seven")

Upon the team's return to the Enterprise, Lieutenant Commander Montgomery Scott personally conducted the court martial of Boma, and he was dismissed from Starfleet service. Despite this, Boma returned to Earth and became a successful civilian scientist, and developed the quantobirilium alloy which was used in the construction of the prototype dreadnought USS Star Empire in 2270.

Bomas were ravenous beasts native to Onderon and its moon Dxun. Although most bomas were generally small, there were some that were extremely large in size, as experienced by the Jedi Exile and her companions while exploring the moon. They were dangerous predators and known to kill Mandalorians, but they themselves were preyed upon by the zakkeg.

Jedi Knight Tott Doneeta used his Force ability to communicate with animals to use some bomas in order to get into Oron Kira's citadel.
