It's mined and refined on-site on various moons and planets, then sent to Ferenginar (or wherever) to be minted into currency Huge robot-driven bulldozers shoveled the gravel onto a conveyor belt, which carried it into an immense box that radiated heat in waves--probably a smelting furnace, Ttan thought. She'd never seen one quite like this before, ...

Actually, the Memory Alpha entry (already suggested in the comments) does say what it is, although only at a very superficial level: Latinum was a rare silver-colored liquid metal AFAIK, neither its exact nature (and why it cannot be replicated) nor its sources are mentioned in the canon works (this seems to be the consensus of a relevant Reddit thread, ...

Personally, I'd vote for Commodore Matt Decker, in "The Doomsday Machine" (TOS). He attempted to save his crew by beaming them all down to a planet, only to then watch helplessly as the machine then consumed the entire planet.

There are several serious contenders mentioned in the EU novels. Fleet Admiral Akaar (a Capellan) is 2.5 metres tall. Apparently his height was not atypical of his race. And the third person towered over everybody. Fleet Admiral Leonard Akaar, who had been the Starfleet liaison to the president since Admiral Ross’s retirement last year, was from ...

It's reasonable to conclude that Data can speak and understand every native language of every UFP member species. The United Federation of Planets consisted of at least one hundred and fifty member planets, spread over eight thousand light years. (Each with a supposed different language.) He would be able to speak to each in their own language. He has total ...
