Colonel Phillip Green (usually called "Colonel Green") was a militia leader on Earth during its third World War.

Prior to Star Trek: Enterprise, Green was called Edward Featherstone Green, a name given to him by FASA. The first name was taken from actor Phillip Pine, who played the genocidal warlord in Star Trek: The Original Series.

In the middle of the war, Green led a faction of violent ecoterrorists whose actions resulted in the death of some 37 million people. (ENT episode: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II") Certain sources state that this group was known as the Optimum Movement which waged a nuclear war on the United States. His reputation for striking at his enemies during negotiations was still well-known by the 23rd century, to Captain Kirk. (ST novel: Federation, TOS episode & novelization: The Savage Curtain)

He was noted as being active during the Eugenics Wars where he was a British Colonel who turned traitor and helped Khan Singh invade Australia. In future decades, the term "green" was a term used to denote a human who served a nonhuman conqueror. (TNG novel: Debtors' Planet) He was remembered for ordering the murder of hundreds of thousands of people sick from radiation poisoning left from the nuclear weapons. John Frederick Paxton once rationalized it by saying that generations of humans would have suffered from deformations and other genetic defects. (ENT episode: "Demons")

"In the shadow of this incalculable devastation, we find ourselves facing a colossal challenge. There's an entire world to rebuild. Not only our cities and homes, but mankind itself. Now is not the time for timidity and second-guessing. We cannot afford to doubt ourselves. Unless we act decisively, we pass on the scars of mutation and decay to future generations. For the sake of our children, and our children's children, we must reject the impure and cast it out!" - Speech by Colonel Green, 2055

Colonel Phillip Green was the Human British leader of the Optimum Movement during World War Three and later continued his eco-terrorist activities by entering into an arrangment with the remnant of the Borg Collective. (TOS novel: Federation (novel); Star Trek: Unity)




During his teenage years, in 2007, Green became involved with the Optimum Movement and was employed at one stage as a security guard outside the movement's covert Plymouth bunker in the United Kingdom. It was sometime in December 2008 that Green first met Captain Lewis, a Starfleet officer from the future, who was investigating the the nuclear threat that the movement represented on behalf of the Home Guard, Optimum's arch-enemy in the UK.

World War Three

In the years following this, Green advanced in rank and position in the Optimum Movement, becoming its leader by the early 2020s. Known for his motto: "Overwhelm and devastate", Green was notorious for striking at his enemies during treaty negotiations. During the Third World War, Green led his faction of violent ecoterrorists whose actions led to the death of some 37 million people through the nuclear bombing of several contries. Barely two years after a cease-fire had ended the war, he ordered the euthanasia of hundreds of thousands of radiation sickened Humans in Great Britain so they wouldn't pass on mutations to future generations. Green outlined his rationale by speaking to a crowd about how they must "reject the impure and cast it out". Ironically, Green himself had not been left untouched by his involvement and his insistance on personally leading many of the attacks during the war caused him to be affected by nuclear radiation himself: Green lost much of his natural hair.

By 2028, Green's Optimum Group had taken control of south and south-west Great Britain, moving survivors of the nuclear attack and subsequent purge to special camps, essentially leaving the streets empty, save for contamination-suited military patrols. A small resistance group had built up, however, and ran raids against Optimum installations, with assistance from American and allied forces.

During the raid by Captain Lewis on the Optimum bunker to recover Jimb'a, following their attempt to stop the launch of even more nuclear weapons by the movement, Green was injured and shot in the head by Jimb'a and presumed dead.

Despite being shot at point blank range in his right eye, Green had obviously mutated enough himself that he could survive, and was able to recover in time.
