MACO - Acronym meaning "Military Assault Command Operations".  It refers to the military
    personel assigned to Enterprise after the Xindi attack on Earth.
                                                             "The Expanse" [ENT]
    Their uniforms are grey-tone camo jumpsuits.
                                                             "The Xindi" [ENT]
    Archer believes that the MACO's tactics and technology are two or three years beyond Starfleet's
    and decides they should have training sessions with Reed's security crew.  Reed replies that his men
    have just as much experience if not more since the MACOs trained on Earth in simulated combat.
    One of the drills was a specialized rifle training session that the MACO's developed at Jupiter station
    early in 2153, where the goal is to hit as many targets as you can in 10 seconds.  The level 4 record
    belongs to Cpl. Amanda Cole.          "Harbinger" [ENT]
    They were picked by Major Hayes.   "Countdown" [ENT]
    SEE: Crew Manifest, MACOs.

Madam Chang's - Dr. Phlox loves the egg drop soup at this restaurant but decided not to revisit it when
    they got back to earth for fear that his presence might provoke an incident because of the xenophobia
    associated with the Xindi attack.  Travis and Hoshi did go however, and Hoshi promised to bring
    Phlox some take-out.                        "Home" [ENT]
    He and Hoshi went to the restaurant.  It had become more popular, and there even was a wait to get
    in, probably because Hoshi had been telling many Starfleet people about the place.  Dr Phlox was kidnapped
    after leaving the restaurant.              "Affliction" [ENT]

Maglock - A system utilizing magnetic force to attach two objects.  The Enterprise grapplers use
    maglocks.  These locks can be disrupted by the presence of eisilium.
                                                             "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Magnesite - Harrad Sar claimed to have discovered a planet with large deposits of magnesite --
    enough to build a thousand warp reactors.  He claimed that he didn't have the infrastructure to get
    the magnesite out of the ground.  So he wanted Starfleet to construct mining facilities from which
    he'd get a ten-percent share.              "Bound" [ENT]

Magnetic constrictor -  Component of a starship's warp core.
    A series of "magnetic constrictors" align the "positron stream" in order to regulate the positron flow
    in the dilithium matrix.  If any stray particles escape, backups automatically kick in.  During one of
    the training tests on the warp five engine, there was a momentarily loss of both the primaries and the
    backups...  About a billion positrons cut through the plating on three decks and nearly caused a hull-
    breach.  A month was spent redesigning the system and it hasn't given them a single problem since.
                                                              "Cold Front" [ENT]
    These are "locked down" to help get the reaction rate down to prevent a warp core breach.
                                                              "Caretaker" [VOY]
    Torres uses a phaser to burn through Dreadnought's magnetic constrictor casing to try to detonate the
    warhead.                                            "Dreadnought" [VOY]
    Seska tells Jonas to damage Voyager's warp coils by forcing the magnetic constrictors out of alignment.
                                                               "Lifesigns" [VOY]
    In 2372, Michael Jonas sabotaged Voyager's magnetic constrictors so that they lost alignment.
    This in turn affected the injector valves and caused the plasma to be too hot, severely damaging the
    inner layer of the warp coils.  Voyager was forced to vent the plasma.  The resulting damage was
    designed to force Voyager to visit a planet called Hemikak where Kazon forces were lying in ambush.
                                                              "Investigations" [VOY]

    maintenance log.                                "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]

Maintenance shafts - After two "borgified" Tarkaleans escape from sickbay and Reed scans their
    escape route, Archer orders the maintenance shafts sealed off .  Later Reed ID's their position as
    Maintenance shaft C, junction 12.  T'Pol verifies this as the location of the plasma regulators.
                                                               "Regeneration" [ENT]

    disturbing dreams.  When T'Pol was trying to rediscover emotion she briefly felt when she was on
    Earth, Tolaris told her that a  mind-meld would be more effective at doing this than the "more
    traditional form of guided meditation".  Archer comes to understand why T'Pol meditates so much.

Microsingularity - A mini-blackhole.  T'pol comments that "Astrometrics" detected what could be

    on them if they could.                        "Shuttlepod One" [ENT]
