Class D18 A small rocky planetoid with an airless surface - essentially a great rock in space.18 Star Trek II : The Wrath of Khan
Class H Generally extremely dry, class H planets are marginally habitable.31 Speculative
Class J Class J planets are gas giants.31 Speculative
Class K16 Class K planets have gravity fields which are suitable for Humanoid life, but are otherwise uninhabitable.16 I, Mudd
Class L32 These are small rocky worlds with an oxygen-argon atmosphere.32 The Ascent
Class M33 Federation term for a planet or planetoid which has environmental conditions very similar to those of Earth. There are estimated to be three million Class M planets in our galaxy.33 The Cage
Class Y34 Also known as a Demon class planet, these are the most inhospitable worlds known to the Federation.34 Demon
Cleaning Processor35 Part fo a Starships solid waste re-cycling system which sterilizes and re-cycles clothing.35 In Theory
Cloaking Device36 A system developed by the Romulan Empire to render its vessels virtually undetectable to an enemy. Cloaking devices have varied greatly in effectiveness as cloaking and sensor technology have competed with one another. In general, it is impossible for a ship to fire a weapon whilst cloaked.36 As of the TNG era, a tachyon network was considered to be the most effective method of detecting cloaked vessels.37 Balance of Terror
Cloning38 A method of creating a new body by duplicating the DNA of an existing cell. A clone is effectively the identical twin of the person it was cloned from. In 2365 the Enterprise-D encountered an entire society composed of clones of five people.38 In 2369 a group of Klingons created a clone of the revered leader Kahless the Unforgettable in an attempt to depose Gowron.39 During the same year a criminal called Ibudan created and murdered a clone of himself in an attempt to frame Constable Odo.40 At some point the Romulans created a clone of Captain Picard, planning to train him to replace the Captain as a Romulan agent at some future time. The plan was later abandoned.41 Up The Long Ladder
Cluster NGC-32142 Star cluster, location of planets Eminiar VII and Vendikar.42 A Taste of Armageddon
Co-axial Warp Core24 A form of warp drive which folds the fabric of space, allowing a vessel to jump across many light years almost instantaneously.24 Vis-a-Vis
Co-orbital satellites43 Pair of objects whose orbits are very close to one another. On close approach, such objects can exchange orbits with one another43 Manhunt
Cobalt diselenide44 A biochemical used in biological weapons. Deadly to Cardassians, it is harmless to other life forms.44 For the Uniform
Cochrane45 A measure of subspace field stress. A field of greater than 1 Cochrane is a warp field, allowing velocities greater than light to be attained. For a vessel in such flight, the Cochrane value of its warp field is equal to the velocity in multiples of the velocity of light. The unit was named after Zefram Cochrane, the inventor of Warp Drive.45 Remember Me
Cochrane distortion46 Fluctuation of the phase of a subspace field generated by a Starship's warp drive.46 Menage a Troi
Cochrane equation47 Equation governing warp flight. The equation was usually constant, but not in the Delphic Expanse.47 Anomaly

Core matrix61 Major component of the warp drive of a Dominion attack ship.61 A Time to Stand
Cormaline62 Mineral substance. The Kazon Ogla mined it from the Ocampa home world.62 Caretaker
Corundium Alloy6 A material used in the construction of an alien probe which came through the Bajoran wormhole.6 The Forsaken

Cosmological Constant63 A number which is the measure of the gravitational attraction of a given amount of mass.63 Deja Q
Covariant pulse64 Pulse which can be emitted from the deflector system of the Cardassian Empok Nor and Terok Nor systems, if the field coils were modified.64 Empok Nor

Cryosatellite67 Orbital storage system for dead bodies frozen as part of a cryonic project.67 The Neutral Zone
Cryostatic chamber68 Device used to sterilize foods by reducing their temperature radically.68 Flashback
Crystalline emiristol69 A solid chemical rocket propellant, used in the Kataan system.69 The Inner Light

Custodian2 Advanced computer system built by the residents of Aldea to care for them.2 When the Bough Breaks
Cyalodin71 A poison used by Humans.71 And the Children Shall Lead
Cyanoacrylates72 A substance not normally carried aboard Galaxy class starships as of 2365. Certain cyanoacrylates can produce Eichner radiation.72 The Child
