NameUp Description Episode
E-Mail1 20th century method of communicating information from one computer to another.1 Future's End, Part 1
E-band emissions2 Signals emitted by a collapsing protostar.2 The Mind's Eye
EJ7 interlock3 Device used on Deep Space 9 to open high-security panels.3 In the Hands of the Prophets
EM base frequencies4 Term which is used when measuring the electromagnetic wavelengths of a phaser beam.4 The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1
EMH5 Emergency Medical Hologram, an artificial person who is intended to serve as a supplement or replacement for a ships medical officer in an emergency. EMH's can only exist within holographic facilities such as a suitably equipped sickbay or a holodeck.5 Caretaker
EPS6 Electro Plasma System, a network of conduits which allows plasma to be routed around a ship in order to power the major systems.6 The Forsaken
EPS Manifold7 A component of Starship engine systems. Damage to the EPS manifold caused engine power loss and shutdown. In 2153, Captain Archer expected to take down the main power system of a Borg assimilated Tarkalean ship by destroying its EPS manifold with a pair of photon torpedo hits. He was unable to do so as the NX-01 was incapacitated. However, he did beam into the ship close to the EPS manifold and destroy it with grenades.7

When the NX-01 was captured by Triannon fanatics, the crew sabotaged the EPS manifold to cause the ship to lose power. On the NX-01 the system was located in on Deck D, section J-15.8

In 2154 Captain Archer disabled the alternate timeline version of the NX-01 by beaming its EPS manifold off the ship during combat.9
EPS matrix converter10 Element of Deep Space Nine's systems.10 Empok Nor
EPS regulators11 Element of Deep Space Nine's systems. If not calibrated properly they could interfere with the station's artificial gravity grid.11 In the Cards
EPS synchronizer12 Element of the weapons systems of an NX class starship. If the synchroniser was not reset when connecting certain systems to the power grid, it could cause the person working on it to have their eyebrows singed.12 Proving Ground
EPS taps13 Component of a Federation EPS system which diverts plasma from the warp drive in order to power the onboard systems.13 A Matter of Time
Ear reciever14 Device used by Starfleet to allow audio information to be heard in private.14 Various Original Series episodes
Echo displacement15 Method of projecting false sensor readings using a Starships deflector.15 Basics, Part 1
Eichner radiation16 A type of radiation which can mutate plasma plague or accelerate its growth. In 2295 Doctor Susan Nuress used Eichner radiation to create new strains of plasma plague during an outbreak in the Oby System. Eichner radiation can be produced by produced by a subspace phase inverter and certain cyanoacrylates.16 The Child
Eisilium17 An extremely rare mineral; until 2151 the Vulcans had never managed to study it in any detail. The NX-01 discovered large deposits of Eisilium on a comet in 2151.17 Breaking the Ice
Electro plasma conduit11 Type of conduit used in the USS Defiant.11 In the Cards
Electro-dynamic probe18 A tool used by Entharan arms dealers. The probe can be fitted with a mono-filament stimulator, allowing it to manipulate neuro-transmitter levels.18 Retrospect
Electroceramic19 Material used as in the construction of Kazon spacecraft.19 Initiations
Electrodynamic turbulence20 Strong currents in the upper atmosphere of some planets. This type of turbulence is a severe hazard to aircraft.20 Innocence
Electrophoretic activity21 Slow movement of charged colloidal particles in a fluid under the influence of an electrical field.21 Elogium
Element 24722 Un-named element discovered by USS Voyager. The element was the first stable trans-Uranic element discovered.22 Emanations
Elgol-red23 A Cardassian code system.23 In Purgatory's Shadow
Emergency hand actuator24 Backup system for opening a Starship door in the event of a system failure which renders the automatic opening system inopperative. Also known as a handle.24 Disaster
Emergency manual monitor25 Auxiliary control system on board Constitution class Starships.25 The Ultimate Computer
Emergency transporter armband4 Device used for the remote activation of a transporter.4 The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1
Emitter stage26 Element of a Federation phaser weapon.26 Soldiers of the Empire
Engineering section14 Typically, the part of a Federation Starship in which the fuel, power, propulsion and other major systems are located.14 Some designs such as the Miranda and Akira have merged the engineering hull into the Saucer section.27 Various Original Series episodes
Engram transcriptor28 System used by the Mari police force to record memories for later examination.28 Random Thoughts
Escape pod27 Small capsule which is ejected from a Starship when it seems certain that it will be destroyed. Escape pods can generally carry several people.27 Kirk was ejected from the USS Enterprise in 2258 and landed on the the ice planet Delta Vega29 Star Trek : First Contact
Eugene's limit30 A limit which applies to warp drive systems. According to Eugene's limit Warp 10 could not be achieved because this involved travelling at infinite velocity. The Federation long suspected that the barrier could be circumvented to allow warp factors above 10 to be reached, and attempted to do this with the Excelsior class Starship. The attempt failed, and the Federation has never achieved a practical transwarp drive. The shuttle Cochrane did achieve warp 10 in 2372, allowing it to occupy every point in the universe simultaneously, but practical difficulties kept the system from being developed. Several examples of alien transwarp drives have been observed.30 Star Trek The Next Generation Technical Manual
Event horizon31 The region around a black hole at which the escape velocity reaches that of light. Certain types of singularity generate an event horizon in the form of an immensely powerful force field.31 Parallax
Exatanium32 Exotic metal alloy32 Vis-a-Vis
Exocomp33 A small robot designed to analyse problems and replicate the tools required to fix them.33 The Quality of Life
Exogenic field34 Enery field that can surround a planet and cause a time shift in sub-space radio signals passing through it. Interaction with active sensor scans can cause a quantum reaction leading to a surge of metreon radiation which can be hazardous to ships.34 The Sound of Her Voice
Exoskeleton35 Any skeleton which is on the outside rather than inside of the body. Insects have exoskeletons. Borg drones have an artificial exoskeleton attached to their skin.35 Generic canonical information
Explosive matrix36 System of the Xindi planet destroying weapon. An explosion of sufficient yield within the explosive matrix would set off a chain reaction sufficient to destroy the whole weapon.36 Azati Prime
Extraction pumps37 Device used in the mining of deuterium.37 Marauders
