cleaning system in crew quarters aboard Federation starships. Besides ultrasonic
showers, old-fashioned bathtubs and water showers are usually available as well.
Device employed for communication among beings who speak different languages.
The universal translator performs a pattern analysis of an unknown language based
on a variety of criteria in order to generate a translation matrix. Is used in
comjunction with Starfleet commbadges.
Flu|| is a relatively
harmless viral disease. Symptoms include blurred vision, dizziness, palpitations,
and a stinging sensation in the lower spine. Urodelan flu is characterized by
a slightly irregular K-3 cell count, elevated intravascular pressure, and heightened
electrophoretic activity. |
Most Humans are naturally immune to Urodelan flu.
An exception was Reginald Barclay, who contracted it in 2370. Dr. Beverly Crusher
attempted to cure it by activating the immunity gene with a synthetic T-cell,
inadvertantly causing a condition later known as Barclay's Protomorphosis Syndrome.
of which the inner and outer surface of both the warp coils and impulse driver
coils are made. Veteriumcortenide produces subspace fields when interacting with
plasma. Verteriumcortenide is a composite which consists of verteriumpolysilicate,
polysilicate, silicium, and monocrystalline cortenum. |
associated with subspace interactions. They inhibit the formation of subspace
fields, damaging or rendering devices which use subspace useless. Verterons infest
the wormhole near Bajor. A protouniverse intruding into our own subspace was kept
contained by an energy field, but verteron pockets in the wormhole threatened
to release it, destroying a runabout and perhaps even the worm hole. Verterons
and subspace do not mix well. |
device, serving as central processing unit in Borg ships. It's responsible for
the neural links between drones, which forms the Collective. It also searches
actively for signs of individuality among Borg drones, wiping it out, bringing
order to chaos. The vinculum also identifies Borg drones who left the Collective
and re-assimilate in the Collective by creating a subspace link with the neural
implant of the drone. The neural patterns of the drone are then adjusted. The
link cannot be severed without chronical neural damage. The vinculum is hard to
de-activate because it has the ability to re-route its internal circuitry. |
for Visual Instrument and Sensory Organ Replacement, The VISOR was not only sensitive
to the visible spectrum, but to a wide range of electromagnetic radiation. By
2373, the VISOR has been replaced by bionic eye implants, which perform the same
function but are far more atheistically pleasing.|
