NameUp Description Episode
Impulse drive1 Propulsion system used for travel in the sub-warp domain. Impulse systems usually comprise a fusion reactor and a space-time driver coil.1 The Doomsday Machine
Impulse speed2 Term which is used to refer to any speed lower than that of light. "Full Impulse" is 25% of the speed of light, a restriction imposed to limit the effects of temporal dilation. If necessary ships are capable of exceeding full impulse significantly.2 Generic canonical information
Induction coil3 Part of the communications system of the shuttlepods carried by the NX class starship.3 Dawn
Induction modulator4 Device used aboard Federation starships. Chief Al Lorenzo traded an induction modulator to Nog for the loan of Captain Sisko's desk in 2375.4 Treachery, Faith, and the Great River
Inertial Damping Field5 Inertial Damping Field, a field which permeates a spacecraft and prevents the occupants from feeling the effects of acceleration. IDF fields are almost perfect when counteracting forces from the ships own systems, but there is a degree of 'leakage' when attempting to compensate for external forces such as weapon impacts.5 Cause and Effect
Inertial micro-damper6 Device which was in use aboard NX class starships. The inertial micro-damper could stop internal components from experiencing vibration or shaking effects; sadly these were rarely if ever employed on chairs.6 Singularity
Injector flare7 Problem which prevented antimatter compression being used to reduce field fluctuations in the warp field of an NX class starship. Injector flare was caused when nucleonic particles flooded the manifolds.7 Similitude
Interphase generator8 A form of cloaking device which adjusts matter so that it is out of phase with normal space. This renders the object both invisible and capable of passing through objects without resistance.8 The Next Phase
Interphasic Compensator9 A device used by Starfleet engineers. Chief O'Brien used an interphasic compensator during his efforts to bring down the forcefields surrounding Dominion sabotage devices on the Defiant in 2371.9 The Adversary
Intra-molecular processors10 Element of Borg nanoprobes. The intra-molecular processors are vulnerable to omicron particles.10 Regeneration
Ion Storm11 Dangerous phenomena which drifts through space and can be a serious threat to Starships.11 Court Martial
Ion matrix12 Element of the drive system of Xyrillian ships.12 Unexpected
Ionized pyrosulfates13 Substance which could disable the warp drive of an NX class starship if it was mixed with Dilithium hydroxls and sent into the plasma vents.13 Precious Cargo
Isolation matrix14 Element of computer systems intended to prevent access by unauthorised personnel.14 Honor Among Thieves
Isolinear chip15 A computer processing and memory device used in 24th century computers. Isolinear chips have been superseded in some respects by bioneural gel packs.15 The Naked Now
Isolinear rod16 A Cardassian computer device similar in function to the Isolinear chip.16 The Forsaken
Isolytic energy17 Form of energy which was used by the alien repair station the NX-01 used in 2152. An Isolytic shock could be fatal to Humans.17 Dead Stop
Isolytic plasma18 Substance to be found in the ring system of some planets.18 Judgment
Isoton19 A unit used to measure mass or the explosive yield of a weapon.19 The Ship
