G-type system - The "Proving Grounds" for the Xindi super-weapon is in a G-type system with
    six planets and over 100 moons.        "Proving Ground" [ENT]

Gabrielle Witty - SEE: Witty, Gabrrielle.

Gagh - serpent worms, a Klingon culinary delicacy.
                                                              "Sleeping Dogs" [ENT]
    Connoisseurs of Klingon cuisine claim that gagh is best when served very fresh, i.e. live.
                                                              "A Matter of Honor" [TNG]
    Gagh is also served stewed.  Picard and Riker both claim to have developed a taste for the dish.
                                                              "Unification, part 1" [TNG]

Galartha - cliffs on Risa.  SEE:  Risan Homeworld, Galartha

Galley - The kitchen of a starship run by the mess officer, nicknamed 'chef'.
    Hoshi says that 'chef' keeps the galley locked up tight, presumably to keep people from cooking
    their own food.                                 "Silent Enemy" [ENT]
    When approaching a singularity giving off an unknown radiation, chef took ill and Sato had to take
    over the galley for a couple of days.  "Singularity" [ENT]

Gallicite - There are major gallicite deposits in the Forge on Vulcan.  It might even be part of the reason
    for the geomagnetic instabilities in that region.  If anything metallic comes close to the deposits there
    is a lightning like discharge from the deposit to the metallic objects.  The discharges are strong enough
    that they might injure anyone carrying metal through the area.
                                                              "Kir'Shara" [ENT]
    It is a very rare substance.  Voyager found nearly a kiloton on the fourth planet of the Sakari system.
    Torres said that was enough to completely refit the warp coils, a process which took a little less than
    one week.  The colonists on the planet were using gallicite to plate the conduits in an active power
    system.                                              "Blood Fever" [VOY]

Gannet - News reporter.  Friend of Travis.
                                                             "Demons" [ENT]

Gardner - One of  four test pilots for the NX Test Program to break warp 2.   See Also: Archer,
    Duval, Robinson.                              "First Flight" [ENT]
    The Vulcans would have preferred to have had Gardner as captain of Enterprise instead of Archer.
                                                              "Shadows of P'Jem" [ENT]

Garos (Wade Andrew Williams) - An alien posing as an antiques dealer on the Akaali homeworld.
    Garos claims to be from the Malurian system, that he led a survey mission to the Akaali world 2-y earlier,
    and decided to stay.  We have no independent confirmation that Garos is a Malurian (eg, from T'pol);
    so that might be a cover story for fellow starfarers.  What we know for sure was that he was actually
    there secretly mining veridium isotope.  His mining operations were contaminating the ground water
    which was poisoning the local Akaali.
    SEE:  Malurian                                    "Civilization" [ENT]

Gas giant - A type of large planet composed primarrily of gas.  Archer thought the gas giant which
    contained the Suliban Helix within its atmosphere was a class 6 or 7.  It turned out to be a class 7 gas giant.
    It had a radiation belt which dissipated warp trails going through it.  However, Enterprise was able to
    compensate for this by recalibrating their sensor array to a narrow band, short to mid-range, and
    measuring particle density in the thermosphere.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Enterprise finds a class 9 gas giant and decide to invesigate it.  There were none in Earth's solar system.
    They send in a probe which discovers a Klingon ship adrift in its atmosphere.   The Klingon scout
    Somraw headed into the atmosphere of the gas giant to make repairs, but became ill and the ship
    descended too deep.  The Klingon term for this gas giant was Q'tahl-class.
                                                              "Sleeping Dogs" [ENT]
    Tucker successfully tested some autopilot upgrades on the shuttlepod near a gas giant which had
    dozens of moons...  He described it as a gravitational jigsaw puzzle and the perfect spot to test
    the modifications.                               "Dawn" [ENT]

Gavarian ship - One of the Ferengi who boarded the Enterprise was familiar with a certain type of
    locking mechanism found on a Gavarian ship.  He thought that there was a similar kind in sick bay.
                                                             "Acquisition" [ENT]

Genetic engineering - The scientific alteration of the structure of genetic material in a living organism.
    The Suliban employed advanced genetic engineering to give themselves extraordinary physical abilities.
    The level of engineering was beyond Doctor Phlox's experience.
                                                             "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Genetic profile - If someone was or is a member of Starfleet, their genetic profile is most likely in
    Enterprise's database.                       "Future Tense" [ENT]

Genome - The total genetic content contained in an organism's deoxyribonucleic acid.  Silik noted the
    close similarity between the human genome and that of an ape.
                                                             "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Geoff Miles - the child that asked about whether thee crew can date.
                                                             "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Geosynchronous orbit - The Ent can't detect the alien ship that was (they conclude) hidden in
    "geosynchronous" orbit on the far side of the planet.
                                                            "Civilization" [ENT]

Geothermal shaft - A part of a power generation system using internal planetary heat.  The Rigel X
    trading complex uses geothermal shafts in its power system.
                                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Germs - When Gabrielle Witty asked if germs could live in space, "Ship's physician" Dr.Phlox
    answered eagerly.  Over 200-million space-dwelling microbes have been cataloged.  One of the most
    virulent, "Polycoccyx astrix"(sp), is found inside grains of interstellar dust.  He once discovered a
    colony on the hull of a ship.           "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Ghost Story - Mayweather is famous for telling ghostt stories.
                                                            "Oasis" [ENT]
    Sitting around the campfire on Strange New World, Mayweather tells a ghost story.  T'Pol says there
    are no ghost stories on Vulcan.  Mayweather tells the tale of a distress call recieved by a cargo vessel
    which was not equipped for rescue operations.  The call came from a life pod of an old Y-500 class
    freighter, a type of ship retired decades ago.  Bioscans showed one life sign in the escape pod which
    had been drifting in space for 63 years.  George Webb, the ship’s assistant chief engineeer, said the
    metal felt cold and that he could hear a tapping noise from inside the pod, but when he opened the pod,
    it was empty. Webb’s personality changed after the incident ... he started acting oddly, often getting
    into fights with the crew and muttering in some unknown alien language. One day he locked himself in
    engineering and overloaded the impulse engines, nearly destroying the ship. During the emergency he
    fled and jettisoned himself in another lifepod.  Some say to this day, that he drifts in space - possessed
    by an alien, or taken over by the ghost of the dead crewman he found in the original pod.  Some say
    they can occasionally hear him tapping and that they pick up his distress signal as he drifts through
    space.  Is it a life form, subspace noise, or just the imagination of some comm officers?
                                                           "Strange New World" [ENT]

Ghrath (Tom Wright) - A member of one of the factions in the Temporal Cold War.
                                                            "Storm Front, part 1" [ENT]

Gold Pressed Latinum - SEE: Latinum

Grand Canyon - A gorge of the Colorado River in northwest Arizona.  Sub-Commander T'Pol never
    visited the Grand Canyon during her months at the Vulcan Compound.
                                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    An uninhabited planet in a system with binary suns had a gorge on the southern continent five times
    deeper than the Grand Canyon.      "The Catwalk" [ENT]

"Granules" - Part of a Xyrillian Game.  SEE:  Xyrillian Culture, Granules

Grappler - The grappler is a device that shoots out a projectile attached to a high strength cable at a
Grappler    high velocity, much like a harpoon gun.  The Enterprise
    docking arm contains two grapplers.  When the two are
    used simultaneously they are shot out parallel to each
    other.  The projectiles grab onto their target by means
    of a maglock, which is then reeled in and secured in the
    launch bay. The grappler can be used offensively to
    capture small ships or to retrieve and bring onboard any
    other space objects too big for the transporter system to
    handle, but of a size less than or equal to a small shuttle.
                                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Gravimetric distortions - When Mayweather complained of stars shifting positions, T'Pol diagnosed
    it as "unusually strong gravimetric distortions" 3 Ly away...  it turned out to be a 700-million-km-wide
    field of bubbling orange space, which T'Pol called "a convergence of anomalies."  It was a region
    that was being reconfigured by the Sphere-builders.
                                                            "Harbinger" [ENT]

Gravimetric field displacement manifold - commonly known as the warp reactor.
                                                             "Cold Front" [ENT]

Gravitational Shear - When Enterprise discovered a black hole in a trinary system, gravitational shear
    necessitated an approach on impulse; using this information, the safe minimum distance from the
    phenomenon was thought to be 5-million-km.
                                                              "Singularity" [ENT]

Graviton Telescope - a few years ago, Archer helped the Vullcans set up a graviton telescope to
    study a dark matter nebula.  The use of EV suits was involved.
                                                            "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Gravity, Artificial - The gravity on the Enterprise is set to "earth, sea level".  Mayweather's father used
    to always keep the gravity at 0.8 g.  "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Gravity Boots -  Magnetic variances such as you might find on an alien ship can affect the operation of
    Gravity boots.                                  "Anomaly" [ENT]

Gravity (Grav-) Plating - The freighter has "gravity plating" thhat can be adjusted to near-zero, and
    apparently to "Earth sea level".        "Fortunate Son" [ENT]
    When an anomaly was discovered in Cargo bay 2, at first it was thought that it might be a problem with
    the "grav plating".                            "The Xindi" [ENT]
    A MACO Corporal said that during the six week tour he did on Jupiter Station the grav-plating went
        down a few times.                          "Anomaly" [ENT]
    Duranium sheeting is convertible into gravity plating.
                                                             "Alice" [VOY]

Green tea - A type of tea prepared from leaves not fermented before drying.  T'Pol prefers hot green tea
    to the other varieties served aboard Enterprise.
                                                              "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Grenade - SEE:  Stun Grenade

Gym - The ship's gym contains a towel cart, 3 treadmills, a 3-axis gimballed whirly cage, and a ladder to
    an upper level.                                    "A Night in Sickbay" [ENT]
