NameUp Description Episode
Nanites1 Federation term for machines small enough to enter a Humanoid body and conduct repairs to individual cells. Nanites have developed intelligence on at least one occasion.1 Evolution
Nanoprobes2 Machines approximately the size of a single cell which the Borg inject into a person to begin the assimilation process. Nanoprobes are essentially a form of nanite.2 Star Trek : First Contact
Navigational deflector3 Large component of a Federation starship which uses force fields and tractor beams to push objects out of the way of the ship as it travels through space. The deflector usually includes a large dish or array on the surface of the ship.3 The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1
Neodynium power cell4 Device used to power a Cardassian phase coil inverter. In 2373 they were hard to come by, at least on Deep Space Nine.4 In the Cards
Neuroelectric Isopulse5 A type of energy-shock which can be used to re-start the brain of a person hours after it has become inactive. In concert with Borg nanoprobes, an isopulse can be used to re-animate a person well after Federation medicine would have regarded them as being deceased. The Borg assimilated the isopulse technology from Species 149; Seven of Nine adapted the technique to revive Neelix after he was killed on an away mission in 2374.5 Mortal Coil
Neurolytic restraint6 Device used by the Orion slavers in the 2150s. It could induce convulsive seisures on command to disable prisoners.6 Borderland
Neutron microscope7 Instrument which the NX-01 Enterprise obtained in 2152 whilst visiting a medical conference on Dekendi III.7 Stigma
Neutronic Wavefront8 Phenomena produced when two neutron stars collide. The wave expands through space at relativistic speed, emitting radiation which prevents the use of warp drive and presenting considerable danger to spacecraft unable to escpae it.8 Fair Haven
Neutronic coupler9 Tool in use on Deep Space Nine during 2373.9 Empok Nor
Neutronic power source10 Power source in use by the Xindi when they travelled back in time to Earth in 2004.10 Carpenter Street
Null Space11 A phonomenon which can occasionally be caused by unstable gravitational and magnetic fields during the formation of a star. A pocket of null space will absorb any electromagnetic energy which falls upon it, rendering its contents invisible to outside detection. The idea was long thought to be purely theoretical, but in 2368 a J'naii shuttlecraft was lost in a pocket of null space. The craft's crew was recovered by the Enteprise-D.11 Null space also forms the basis for the catapult system built by Tash in the Delta Quadrant in his efforts to return home.12 The Outcast
