Antigrav Units

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Antigrav Units1

The Federation has a long history with antigraity technology. Used aboard ship, antigravs have a large range of diverse functions; primarily, units of various kinds are used for the transport of cargo around ship. In the 2260s Starfleet issued general purpose antigrav units which could attach to heavy items, allowing them to float and so be easily dragged around.1 By the 2270s "flat bed" units were in use which provided a platform to load cargo onto.2 Similar units continue in use with Starfleet through the 2360s.3
