Adaptive heuristic matrix7 Sophisticated computer architecture employed by Federation EMHs.7 The Swarm
Adaptive interface link8 Computer connection used to exchange information between computer systems with no common operating system.8 The Forsaken
Airlock9 An area on board a ship or station which allows access to or from space. Airlocks generally have a pressurized door leading into the vehicle, and another leading to the exterior. Shuttle bays can be considered to be giant airlocks.9 Star Trek : The Motion Picture
Alternate timeline10 A timeline which differs from the 'proper' one. Alternate timelines are often created by various forms of temporal technology.10 Mirror, Mirror
Ammonium sulfide11 Chemical compound, poisonous to Humans.11 Harbinger
Analeptic radiation12 Type of radiation which Dr. Phlox used to treat certain types of mutagenic pathogen.12 Cease Fire
Androids13 A robot designed to mimic a Human or Humanoid in appearance.13 Data is an Android.14 What Are Little Girls Made Of?
Anionic energy1 Form of energy comprising quantum-level particles.1 Power Play
Anodyne relay15 Power transfer device used aboard recent Federation starships such as the Intrepid class.15 Charlie X
Anti-back flow valve16 Valve in the plasma vents of a Starship designed to prevent objects entering the system from the outside.16 One Little Ship
Anti-time17 A 24th century concept of time. Anti-time is to normal time as antimatter is to normal matter.17 All Good Things
Antichroniton18 Antiparticle of the chroniton.18 Before and After
Antigrav19 Antigravity units which are used to carry heavy objects.19 Obsession
Antigraviton20 Antiparticle of the graviton.20 Attached
Antilepton interference21 A form of interference used by the Cardassians to inhibit subspace radio.21 Emissary
Antimatter22 A form of matter in which the charge of the subatomic particles is reversed. Matter and antimatter mutually annihilate one another on contact, releasing large amounts of energy, and this process is used to power Federation Starships.22 The Naked Time
Antimatter constrictor coils23 Element of the warp drive system of an NX class starship.23 Doctor's Orders
Antimatter containment24 The magnetic fields used to hold the antimatter fuel of a Starship.24 Contagion
Antimatter converter assembly25 Component of the warp drive system on the original Constitution class Starships.25 Various Original Series episodes
Antimatter generator26 Device which can convert matter into antimatter. The antimatter generator is not considered to be an efficient method of generating antimatter.26 Star Trek The Next Generation Technical Manual
Antimatter inducers27 Element of the warp drive system of an NX class starship. In an alternate timeline Captain Archer devised an improvement to the antimatter inducers which allowed Enterprise to travel farther on less fuel.27 Twilight
Antimatter injectors28 Element of a warp drive system. Andorian antimatter injectors in use in the mid 22nd century used variable compression nozzles, a technology which NX class starships lacked.28 Proving Ground
Antimatter junction29 Element of the warp reactor of an NX class starship. Disconnecting the antimatter junction from the primary antimatter feed would prevent an antimatter cascade from jumping between the warp manifold and the reactor core itself.29 Cold Front
Antimatter pod30 Device designed to store large quantities of antimatter for use as fuel in a Federation Starship.30 The Apple
Antimatter relay31 Element of the warp drive of an NX class starship. The linings of the relays were coated with a platinum-cobalt alloy. Stripping the coating from 200 relays was sufficient to yield half a litre of pure platinum.31 The Xindi
Antiproton32 An elementary particle, the antimatter equivalent of a proton.32 The Doomsday Machine
Antithoron radiation33 Energetic form of energy used to decontaminate a planetary crust prior to the extraction of polyferranide.33 Tattoo
Anyon34 Anyons are particles which can be used to counter Chronitons.34 The Next Phase
Anyon emitter34 Device designed to emit anyons.34 The Next Phase
Apeture ring35 Element of a neutron microscope. The condenser lens was fitted to the aperture ring.35 Stigma
Aquatic lab36 Facility on Federation Starships used for the study of water dwelling life forms.36 Genesis
Arboretum36 Facility on Federation Starships used for the study of various flora.36 Genesis
Argonite2 Hazardous substanced.2 Doctor Bashir, I Presume?
Arva nodes37 Alien language term for a device equivalent to a Starfleet Bussard Collector.37 Captive Pursuit
Assimilation38 A Borg term describing the incorporation of other life forms into their collective. This is achieved by a combination of injecting the subject with nanoprobes and the surgical implantation of machine elements. A basic assimilation is effective within seconds.38 The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1
Astatine39 Element capable of generating a duonetic field.39 Paradise
Astral eddy40 Phenomenon which occurs in the interfold between space and subspace. Astral eddys can generate massive discharges of plasmatic energy, generating temperature gradients of up to 9 million kelvin.40 Real Life
Astrometrics41 An area on board USS Voyager in which advanced long range sensors determine the location of many millions of stars simultaneously, allowing a great increase in mapping accuracy over conventional systems.41 Revulsion
Asymetric encryption circuits16 Element of the computer control system of a Defiant class starship. There are two dozen 66-D isolinear chips in these circuits.16 One Little Ship
Atavachron42 Temporal portal created on the planet Sarpeidon to allow the population to escape the death of their sun.42 All Our Yesterdays
Atmosphere conditioning pumps43 Element of the life support system of a Federation Starship.43 Space Seed
Atmospheric dissipation44 Rare phenomenon in which plasmonic energy bursts burn off the atmosphere of a planet over days. Once it has begun, the process cannot be stopped.44 Homeward
Atmospheric recycling manifold45 Part of the life support system of an NX class starship. It was located in junction 4-1-Alpha.45 The Crossing
Atmospheric system46 An element of the life support system of a spacecraft which maintains the proper balance of gases in the air.46 Generic canonical information
Auto stabilisers47 Element of the warp drive of an NX class starship. The auto stabilisers kept the warp field balanced; their function could be disrupted if the ship was operating in close proximity to other warp drive vessels.47 Shockwave, Part 1
Auto-phaser interlock48 Computer control system which assists in the targeting of phaser weapons.48 A Matter of Time
Autodestruct49 A procedure built into Federation Starships which allows them to destroy themselves in order to prevent capture.50 Some autodestruct modes detonate explosive devices within the ship,51 while others bring all of the antimatter fuel into contact with matter simultaneously. This mode is more than sufficient to completely vaporize the largest vessels.52 Most vessels require both the Captain and one or more senior officers to agree in order to engage the autodestruct feature.51 Where No Man Has Gone Before
Autonomous holo-emitter53 29th century device which allows a hologram to be projected outside the confines of a holodeck or other suitable equipped environment.53 Future's End, Part 2
Autonomous regeneration sequencer54 Borg device which automatically replicates any circuitry which is removed by non-Borg methods.54 The Gift
Autosequencer55 Element of a transporter which controls the transport process. Failure of the autosequencer during transport can cause death to the subject.55 Data's Day
Autosuture56 Handheld unit used to heal reasonably mild wounds to the skin. Autosutures can be used to close incisions, heal knife wounds, etc.56 Suddenly Human
