The Metron is a unit of surface area used in Heim Theory and is analagous to the branes of string theory. It has dimension approximately equal to the Planck length squared (h*h), or 10 **-70 m**2. The term is in use in this context since the 1950s and so pre-dates Star Trek.
The Metron are omnipotent beings and one of the dominant inhabitants of the Beta Quadrant in the fictional realm of Star Trek. The exact location of the Metron Consortium is not know. They made first contact with Starfleet in 2267 when mediating a dispute between the United Federation of Planets and the Gorn. The Metrons made their first appearance in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode Arena.
