DaKala - A small rogue planet, (one that broke out of it's star's orbit). With no sun around, it is a
    world of perpetual night.  It is able to support a diverse animal population because of hot gases
    venting from the planet's interior.  The areas where these volcanic vents are found form oasies, in
    which the planet's lifeforms are concentrated.    The primal volcanic vents remind Archer of
    Yellowstone and remind T'Pol of the grottos of Deneva Prime.  It is covered by forest which
    reminds Archer of the rain forests of New Zealand on Earth.  There are boreworms which crawl into
    your ear to lay their eggs.  The Enterprise discovered an Eska hunting party near the equator.  The
    planet has been being used as a hunting reserve by the Eska for 9 generations who are allowed to
    hunt on it only 4 days a year.  It has no indigenous humanoid life, but it has some higher primates
    which the Eska leave alone.  The Eska  do however hunt for several species such as  drayjin , and a
    shapeshifting intelligent race called the wraiths.  The Eska do not think the wraiths are intelligent.

Dampening Field - There is a dampening field around Garos' shop which prevents beaming.
                                                              "Civilization" [ENT]
    When they find an airponics bay filled with vegetation on a derelict ship, T'Pol reports a "dampening
    field" that had hidden its life-signs.    "Oasis" [ENT]

Damrus - SEE: Eska Individuals, Damrus.

Daniels, crewman (Matt Winston) - An agent in the temporal cold war, posing as a steward rank
Daniels    aboard Enterprise.  The insignia on Daniels' shoulder resembles the two pips for a
    lieutenant, but Archer calls him "Crewman".  Archer is served breakfast by
    Daniels, who switched shifts with Taylor. Daniels approaches Archer in a
    corridor with knowledge he shouldn't have about Archer's fight with Silik
    aboard the Helix, and thereby convinces him to come to his quarters to talk.
    Daniels claims to have come from 900 years in the future, and to be "more
    or less human".  Daniels' cover story included a brother who's an "orbital engineer" at
    "Jupiter Station".  In actuality he doesn't have a brother.  He grew up in Illinois, just "not the one you're
    familiar with"; Earth still exists, depending on how you define it.  He has some special devices in his
    possession.  One of them is an ovoid device called a "temporal observatory".  He uses it to convince
    Archer he is from the future and needs access to Main Engineering to fulfill his mission of finding Silik.
    He has a second ovoid device while in Engineering which isn't specifically keyed to him since we see
    Trip inadvertently activate it.  He also has a third brass-knuckle like device which allows him to pass
    through solid objects. Its operation is reminiscent of the personal phase-cloak from "The Next Phase"
    [TNG], but without the cloak.  Maybe post-Dominion war agreements between the Romulans and
    Federation allowed for such tech to be developed.  It isn't keyed to him personally either since we see
    Archer use it.  When Silik finds Daniels first, he fires at him, and Daniels at first fades and wavers.
    It looked like he was fighting the beam; trying to shrug it off.  Then a blue ripple flows from the impact.
    He seemed to have succeeded in dispersing the shot, but was weakened from it.  With a second shot,
    he explodes into angular chunks like broken glass and a dissipating mist.  He was presumed dead.
                                                               "Cold Front" [ENT]
    Daniels brought Captain Archer back in time before the launch of Enterprise to give him information
    on how to prove the Suliban had rigged the Enterprise's shuttlepod to ignite the atmosphere of the
    Paraagan colony.  After Archer had proof, the Suliban went after Enterprise, despite that Daniels said
    it wouldn't happen.  It became apparent that they were really after Archer, so under orders from his
    superiors, Daniels brought Archer to the future before the Suliban could get him.  But removing Archer
    from the timeline changed history.  All the time portals were destroyed and Daniels became stranded
    with Archer in an Earth of the 31st century which had become a wasteland.

Danik - SEE:  Suliban, Danik

Dark Matter - Form of matter that consists of particles which don't emit any (electromagnetic)
    radiation, making it invisible and hard to detect. Some physicists think that dark matter can function
    as an energy source for starship drives.  Dark matter seems to have some exotic properties. It makes
    objects continually phase in and out of our universe.  This property can cause depressurization on
    board starships, because the hulls phase in and out.
                                                              "In Theory" [TNG]
    Vulcan scientists have used metreon particles to make dark matter visible.
                                                             "First Flight" [ENT]
    SEE: Dark Matter Nebula

Dark Matter Nebula - A few years ago, Archer was helping the Vulcans set up a graviton telescope to
    study a dark matter nebula.                "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]
    Enterprise detected the first Dark Matter Nebula ever found which could be studied up close.  It was
    a structure 10 million km wide.  It was given the name "Robinson nebula" in honor of A.G. Robinson,
    a warp flight pioneer who had recently died.
                                                                 "First Flight" [ENT]
    Dark matter exists in the Mar Obscura nebula.
                                                              "In Theory" [TNG]
    The nebula where the commandeered Jem'Hadar warship crashed on a planet was a dark matter nebula.
                                                             "Rocks and Shoals" [DS9]
    Tuvok says that an unidentified ship from the dark matter nebula attacked the shuttle; the nebula
    contains strong electromagnetic radiation which prevents Voyager from scanning inside it.
                                                               "Cathexis" [VOY]

Darsek - A form of currency.  Skalaar was promised 9000 darseks as the bounty for bringing Archer to the
    Klingons.  They only gave him 6000 darseks.
                                                               "Bounty" [ENT]

Database - A collection of knowledge contained in a computer file.  Various types of databases are
    available in the Enterprise's computers.  SEE: Submammalian databaseVulcan database

Data buffer - Computer storage device.
    The communications tower on Terra Nova had a data buffer which was checked for messages that
    were sent to Earth.                            "Terra Nova" [ENT]

Data Module - On a derelict ship the Enterprise crew find a "computer terminal"; Mayweather's scans
    indicate the "data modules" are without power, but intact.  He sets to remove one.  Later when
    suspicions grow, Archer orders Mayweather to retrieve the module from shuttlepod one and have
    Sato download it.                              "Oasis" [ENT]

Dating - Geoff Miles asked: "Can the crew date?"  Archer explained that most of the crew share quarters
    with at least one other person, so it would be complicated.
                                                              "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]
    Starfleet forbids officers from fraternizing with subordinates.
                                                              "Fallen Hero" [ENT]

Deborah - One of Reed's old romances.  He dictated a letter to her when he thought he might be dying.
                                                              "Shuttlepod One" [ENT]

Deck Plan - A schematic of the layout of the decks and what is on them.
    SEE: Technical Specifications, NX-01.

Decompression - A change in atmospheric pressure from higher to lower.
    The acclimation process the Xyrillians use to adapt other species to their environment was called
    a decompression process.                "Unexpected" [ENT]

Decon chamber - An enclosed compartment for the eliminatioon of harmful substances and organisms
decon chamber     from the body.  Enterprise has a decon chamber  for use as quarantine upon
    return to the ship from a planet.  The chamber is lit with ultraviolet light
    and features small compartments labeled alphabetically for the transfer
    of decon-gel.                                     "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    A stay in the decon chamber appears to be a pleasurable experience much like being in a sauna.
    The absence of sonic showers on Enterprise makes one wonder if the decon chamber eventually might

decon chamber    have evolved into the sonic shower technology.
                                                              "Sleeping Dogs" [ENT]
    Since he was in the decon chamber, Trip was protected from the stun gas that the Ferengi used to
    incapacitate the ship, but he was locked in.  Trip tried, but failed to pry the doors apart.  After
    popping open the grill on the intercom panel, he shorted something out, and the doors opened.
    (They lead directly to the spacesuit locker room.)
                                                              "Acquisition" [ENT]
    T'Pol suggested isolating the borgified Tarkaleans in the chamber but Phlox didn't think they were
    that dangerous.                                  "Regeneration" [ENT]
    A privacy curtain was installed since not everyone is comfortable disrobing in front of others.
                                                               "Bounty" [ENT]

Decon gel - A semisolid liquid for the elimination of harmful substances and organisms from the body.
    Decon-gel is customized to the specific substance or organism to be eliminated.  It is employed
    primarily in the decon chamber aboard Enterprise. The gel is applied in the decon chamber.

Dee'Ahn - SEE:  Risa, Dee'Ahn

Deflector - A device used to clear space dust and other small objects from a starship's path.  Enterprise
    has a golden dish-shaped deflector at the forward primary hull.  Reed said that if he didn't realign the
    deflector that a grain of space dust could blow a hole through the ship about the size of a fist.  Upon
    reaching warp 4.4, a shudder ran through the ship which was merely the result of the deflector
    sequencing.                                       "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Tucker realigned the main power grid to increase the deflector pulse threefold, maybe four but it
    would fry just about every system on the ship.
                                                              "Zero Hour" [ENT]

Dekendi - Site of an Interspecies Medical Exchange conference in 2152.  Mayweather was invited to
    participate in a favorite "Dekendi" game: four players and a crowd of "fargans" (native creatures,
    like cows with humps) stand in a circle, and the players toss a "melon"-like native fruit amongst
    themselves.  He compares it to "monkey-in-the-middle", a game apparently alien to Denobula.
                                                              "Stigma" [ENT]

Delphic Expanse - A mysterious region of space about a 3 monnth trip from Earth at warp 5.
Delphic Expanse        It is nearly 2000 light years across and surrounded by
        thermobaric clouds.  Vulcan ships have entered it
        but only a few have ever returned. There have been
        reports of fierce and dangerous species, unexplained
        anomalies, and regions where the laws of physics do
        not apply.  ca 2133, a Klingon vessel emerged from
        the Expanse... Every crewman on board had been
        anatomically inverted, their bodies splayed open,
        and they were still alive.  It takes 7 weeks to get from Earth to the Expanse.
                                                               "The Expanse" [ENT]
    Strange anomalies are seen inside the Expanse.  For example...oddly shifting gravity fields have been
        witnessed within the confines of a single cargo hold.  The Orassin Distortion Field is a particularly
        dangerous part of this Expanse.     "The Xindi" [ENT]
    The Triannons call the Expanse, the Chosen Realm.  SEE: Triannon Religion.
                                                                "Chosen Realm" [ENT]
    Over 400 years into an alternate future, the Expanse was 50,000 ly in diameter.

Department - Color stripes on the uniform shoulders indicate department.
    Gold - Command (Archer & Mayweather)
    Burgundy Red - Engineering & Tactical (Tucker & Reed)
    Green - Communications (Sato)
    There doesn't seem to be a separate color for security and we haven't seen one for the sciences or
        medical yet.

Depth charge - An explosive charge designed for detonation at a preset depth under water or in a
    planet's atmosphere.  The Suliban employed depth charges against Enterprise in the gas giant
    containing the Suliban Helix.              "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Dermal plating - the "skin" of a Xyrillian.  They can detect each other's moods by their dermal plating,
    (although it is unclear as to whether this is done by displaying or sensing the other's moods.)
                                                                "Unexpected" [ENT]

Dermaline gel - Used to treat first degree burns, such as those in injuries caused by a ruptured nitrogen
    line.                                                     "Dear Doctor" [ENT], "Deadlock" [VOY]

Detention Complex 26 - One of many Tandaran facilities for Suliban refugees, under the command of
    Colonel Grat.  The camps had supposedly been put in place to keep Suliban civilians from joining
    the Suliban Cabal.  Captain Archer helped to liberate this specific complex because he felt the prisoners
    were unjustly being held there.           "Detained" [ENT]

Deuterium - An isotope of hydrogen with one proton and one neutron in the nucleus around which
    circles one electron.  (chemical name: hydrogen-2)
    Deuterium is used in fusion / impulse engine reactors, and is also used as the "matter part" of the
    matter / antimatter reaction.
    Deuterium is a highly valuable commodity.  It can burn almost as hot as plasma when ignited.
                                                                 "Marauders" [ENT]
    O'Brien, with Jake's help, was in the process of converting ore processing unit 5 on DS9 to a deuterium
    refinery when the security program was triggered.
                                                             "Civil Defense" [DS9]
    Voyager vents deuterium into space after it is hit by the multipolar charges of the lifeform.
                                                             "The Cloud" [VOY]
    Janeway tells Kim and Seven to search for deuterium; Seven suggests modifying the bussard collectors
    to gather it.                                       "Unforgettable" [VOY]
    When Voyager gets low on deuterium; Seven found a planet with dense pockets of deuterium about
    0.4 light years from their position; the crew tries unsuccessfully to beam the deuterium from beneath
    the planet's surface; the pools of liquid that Paris and Kim find on the surface contain liquefied-
    deuterium; Kim says that there is enough deuterium on the planet to get Voyager to the Alpha quadrant
    and back again; Kim had already collected 20 kilos which is enough to get Voyager's main systems back
    online.                                               "Demon" [VOY]

Deuterium facility - A Kreetassan merchant told the Enterprise where to find a Deuterium facility.
    At this facility, deuterium was taken out of the ground by extraction pumps on a seasonal basis.
    They had three months of good weather to pump all the deuterium they could before the winter.  The
    deuterium has to be refined and then it is held in tanks that can contain more than 80,000 liters.  An
    exchange of 5 power cells for 200 liters seemed fair, but they settled for 4 cells plus medical supplies
    in addition to repair work on their two inoperable pumps (they had at least 6).  T'Pol has been to
    several other colonies that trade deuterium.
                                                              "Marauders" [ENT]

Deuterium injector - Component of a Starfleet starship's warp ppropulsion system.
                                                              "One Little Ship" [DS9]
    The alien repair station listed 5 deuterium injectors as one of the compensation options for the
    repairs to the Enterprise.                   "Dead Stop" [ENT]
    Tucker arrives in Sickbay, after incurring a "second degree burn" on his left wrist while reinstalling
    the deuterium injectors.                      "Anomaly" [ENT]
    On the Defiant, they were brought on line by Sisko in the mirror universe.
                                                               "Shattered Mirror" [DS9]
    SEE Also: Plasma Injectors.

Deuterium Residue - An exploratory team find the remains of a Borg transwarp coil and detect
    deuterium residue.                              "Regeneration" [ENT]

Devil - In Christianity, the major personified spirit of evil, ruler of hell, and enemy of God.  Captain
    Archer compared the Suliban acquisition of genetic engineering technology to a deal with the devil.
                                                               "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Diagnostic - Analysis programs intended to permit automated determination of system performance
    and diagnosis of any malfunctions.
    Hoshi was running a diagnostic of the subspace transceiver array after the launch of Echo two.
                                                               "Silent Enemy" [ENT]
    Hoshi ran diagnostics of the com system twice, trying to find the source of frequency distortions
    she heard in the static.                        "Vox Sola" [ENT]
    In Phlox's hallucination, T'Pol claimed not to have heard Phlox since she was running a diagnostic.
                                                                "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]

Diagnostic gear - When shown what the Kantarans called their "computer core", Tucker notes that he
    worked on something similar on the Xyrillian ship and says he will need some diagnostic gear from
    the Enterprise.                                    "Oasis" [ENT]

Diamagnetic storm - A bigger diamagnetic storm pushed a smaller one toward the landing party.  Because
    of the bigger storm, the other one came through the mountain pass to the north at twice the speed
    which was originally predicted.  The storms were saturated with polaric energy and accompanied by
    intense discharges.  Because of the danger the landing party had to return to the ship, but since the
    storms threw a lot of interference up into the atmosphere and the polaric bursts accompanying them
    could short circuit a shuttlepod the transporter had to be used, and even then, they could only transport
    up one person at a time.                    "Vanishing point" [ENT]

Dicobalt - The Coridan Chancellor explains that the rebels always demand a ransom such as "side arms",
    or "dicobalt-explosives" in exchange for hostages.

    SEE Also: Tricobalt

"Digger" - A word the Novans use for a useful indigenous animal.  SEE:  Novan language, Diggers

Dilithium - Crystalline substance, used in warp propullsion systems aboard starships.  Dilithium
    regulates the matter / antimatter reactions that provide the energy necessary to warp space and travel
    faster than light.  Naturally occurring dilithium is a rare and highly prized commodity.
    The E.C.S. Fortunate delivered dilithium ore as cargo.
                                                                "Fortunate Son" [ENT]
    When dealing with the trader D'Marr, Archer says the supplies they really need are things like
    dilithium ore.  D'Marr tells them of a derelict ship which Enterprise decides to investigate.  Once
    there, they detect the presence of dilithium.  In the ship's engineering section, Tucker's scan
    indicates the "dilithium crystals" are in perfect shape.
                                                              "Oasis" [ENT]
    Dilithium was abundant on the planet Coridan.
                                                               "Journey to Babel" [TOS]
    The the planet Troyius was also a rich source of naturally occurring dilithium.
                                                               "Elaan of Troyius" [TOS]

Dilithium matrix - The dilithium matrix is part of the warp reactor assembly.  The positron flow in
    the dilithium matrix is regulated by a series of magnetic-constrictors which are used to align the
    positron stream.  If any stray particles escape backups automatically kick in.
                                                               "Cold Front" [ENT]
    When talking to the Kantarans they found in a derelict ship, Tucker reports that
    their "dilithium matrix is stable".      "Oasis" [ENT]
    The dilithium matrix has to be aligned within .3 microns even though the specs say .5.
                                                               "Affliction" [ENT]
    After the Pralor vessel attacks Voyager, their dilithium matrix is destabilized and they can't get the
    warp engines running.                      "Prototype" [VOY]
    Torres says that she needs to shut down the warp drive in order to realign the dilithium matrix;  since
    Voyager is being pursued by the Swarm, Torres must realign it "on the fly" instead.
                                                              "The Swarm" [VOY]
    Neelix asks Torres if she has tried phase locking the plasma injectors to the dilithium matrix to help
    regulate the plasma flow; Torres tells him that that was the first thing she thought of.
                                                               "Fair Trade" [VOY]
    After the Maquis took over Voyager during the Insurrection Alpha program, in the simulation the
    warp engines were offline for 2 days because they couldn't get the dilithium matrix re-initialized.
                                                                "Worst Case Scenario" [VOY]
    Paris tries decoupling the dilithium matrix in order to try to stabilize the warp core but it doesn't work.
                                                               "Day of Honor" [VOY]

Dilithium, Recrystallization -
    In 2286, Spock (who had traveled back in time to 1986) devised a means of recrystallizing dilithium
    by exposing it to the high energy photons of gamma radiation that were the by products of a nuclear
    fission reaction.                                 "The Voyage Home" [ST4]
    In later years, theta-matrix compositing techniques permitted even more efficient recrystallization.
                                                               "Family" [TNG]
    By the late 2360's, recrystallization techniques had advanced to the point that crystals could be
    recomposited while still inside the articulation frame of the dilithium chamber, extending the useful
    life of the crystals even further.          "Relics" [TNG]

Dillard (Mike Baldridge) - Crewman; male; An engineer on Enterprise.
Dillard                                                              "Unexpected" [ENT]

Disilicon polymers - A material used in the hulls of Axanar ships.
                                                               "Fight or Flight" [ENT]

Disruptor  - Very common type of energy weapon. It disrupts the molecular structure of an object.
    At low energy amounts, the object can recover, but at high energy amounts, the damage is severe.
    A phaser is a type of disruptor.  When he crashed on Earth in 2151, Klaang used a disruptor to
    detonate methane in a farm silo to kill the Suliban who were pursuing him.  (Klaang's weapon was
    never named in the episode, but the script called it a disruptor.  This is consistent with later Klingon
    weapons.)                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    It is a shipboard weapon system found on the Klingon scout ship.
                                                                "Sleeping Dogs" [ENT]

Ditanium - Enterprise found a Ditanium signature that's probably their shuttlepod, 4-km outside the
    city that they were approaching when they were shot down.
                                                              "Shadows of P'Jem" [ENT]

D'Marr (Tom Bergeron) - An Alien trader.  He has a reptile-like head: green-grey hairless skin, a
    serrated diagonal ridge on each cheek, raised plates across his elongated skull.  We don't see his ship.
    D'Marr prefers to deal in "exotic goods", such as spices and fabrics, but not hardware (though he'll
    take it in trade).  He introduced the Enterprise crew to a spice called hajjlaran and offered them some
    triaxian silk for another protein resequencer, but Archer says what they really need are engineering
    supplies: "raw duratanium", "dilithium ore".  D'Marr mentions that there's a small system "2 days
    away" that might serve their purposes.  He's reluctant to say more, until Archer bribes him with 10-kg
    of coffee.  D'Marr discovered a largely intact "transport vessel" crashed on "one of the inner planets",
    with no "life-signs" -- but when he tried to salvage it, the crew objected.  He thinks the ship is haunted.
                                                              "Oasis" [ENT]

DNA - Deoxyribonucleic acid, a molecule that carries the genetic information in the cell and is capable
    of self-replication and determines individual hereditary characteristics.  Suliban DNA was modified
    through genetic engineering.  Klaang carried information about them encoded in his own DNA in 2151.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Docking arm - A device to capture smaller spacecraft and bring them into a starship.  The Enterprise
    docking arm includes deployable grapplers.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Archer ordered them to deploy the docking arm while at a distance of 8000km from the ship.
                                                              "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    One of the docking arms was outfitted with a set of quantum beacons which can be used to detect
    cloaked ships.                                   "Shockwave, part 1" [ENT]

Docking berth - The alien repair station had two cylindrical "docking berths" joined by a smaller
    rectangular hull.  One berth unfolded to a size that accommodated Ent's "saucer section".
                                                               "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Docking interface -  A system to couple vehicles together.  The Suliban docking interface was a
    maglock with inertial clamps.             "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Docking port - the Enterprise has three docking ports.&nbbsp; Reed wanted security teams at each of them. The
Docking Port    design of these docking ports are claimed to have been based
    on the docking ports of the ISS (International Space Station).
           "Shockwave, part 2" [ENT]
    Archer asked Tucker to meet him at docking port 2 to meet
    some visitors that needed repair work done.  This must be
    the starboard port since we see the ship docked there.
           "Precious Cargo" [ENT]

Dopamine - A brain chemical.  A microbe which T'Pol became infected with was inducing elevated dopamine
    levels in her.  (It more than likely is a symptom of Pon Farr which was triggered in T'Pol by the disease).
                                                                                "Bounty" [ENT]

Douglas - Admiral who needed Archer to approve Enterprise's decommissioning protocols.  Archer made
    him wait until after the Federation Charter was signed.
                                                               "These are the Voyages" [ENT]

Dralax - A planet, inhabited by females that have three ?something?
