The Higarel is a sentient computer formed by the Madamar Empire and encountered by the USS Ursa Major on Stardate 238401. The Higarel's physical form is that of a rift in space which is detectable both by sensors and by telepathically sensitive individuals. When encountered by the crew of the Ursa Major the Higarel contacted Lt. JG Kel Mage telepathically to plead for assistance for the Betian, a species enslaved by the Madamar Empire. When initally ignored, the Higarel attempted to draw in the Ursa Major and took possession of Lt. Commander Solan to negotiate for the assistance it desired. The situation was resolved through a compromise by Admiral Hollis by offering the Betians a shuttlecraft to meet and explain their situation at Deep Space 17.
