Tachyon radiation - SEE: Particles, Tachyon.

Tahiti -  Tucker said that when he got back to Earth, he was going to lay on a different beach every week
    for two months, but that he couldn't decide whether to start with Tahiti or Cancun.
                                                              "Storm Front, part 1" [ENT]

Tal-Shanar  - religious ceremonies held at the Vulcan Consulate.
                                                             "Cold Front" [ENT]

Tamaal - Planet which was home to a large trading outpost with over two million inhabitants.  It was
    located in a binary star system.        "Canamar" [ENT]

Tanner, Ensign - As of spring, 2152, One of two crewmen assigned full-time to the Armory.
    Reed received permission to assign a third person to the Armory thus freeing up Ens. Tanner to begin
    upgrades to the torpedo launchers.
                                                             "Minefield" [ENT]

Tap - A mechanism which is used to draw off something such as plasma or power from a system.
    SEE: System tap.

Targeting access - Reed tells Mayweather to rotate the targeting access by 0.5 microns to try to correct
    a malfunction in the system.              "Fight or Flight" [ENT]

Targ - Furry, pig-like Klingon animal which are kept as pets.  Worf had one as a pet when he was young.
    It appeared on the Enterprise-D's bridge during an incident with the traveler.
                                                              "Where No One Has Gone Before" [TNG]
    and also used for food.                       "Sleeping Dogs" [ENT]

Target discriminators - SEE: torpedo

Targeting scanners, weapons - Reed says he has to "tune" the targeting scanners to get the weapons
    working.                                           "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    There are fore and aft targeting scanners.  After alignment, simulation J-6 is activated to test them.
    With the scanners out of alignment it is possible to hit stationary targets, but not moving ones.
    SEE: simulation J-6, infrared scanner. "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Tholian tractor beams interfere with targeting scans.
                                                              "Future Tense" [ENT]

Targeting sensor, Starboard - When the "starboard targeting sensor" goes out "again".  Reed exits the
    bridge by the forward starboard passage, and returns two minutes later.  (presumably having repaired
    the problem).                                      "Cold Front" [ENT]

Tarkalean - SEE: Tarkaleans.

Tarquin (Maury Sterling) - A lonely telepathic alien who, seeking a companion, contacts Hoshi and
    offers information on the Xindi if she will stay with him.  Tarquin is humanoid, with limbs and
    facial features in the right places, but has six pairs of clawed, insect-leglike appendages on his
    hairless head. His skin is sandy brown, with dark-red elliptical patches along the centerline. His
    species produces one telepath per 50 million births; these individuals are considered threatening,
    and are exiled to luxurious solo housing in other star systems. They have an unusually long lifespan;
    Tarquin claimed to be 400 years old, and made no mention of imminent senility. His species seem to
    have replicator technology, at least for foodstuffs.  His parents give him a telepathy-enhancing orb.
                                                                "Exile" [ENT]

Tasaki - A scientist and contemporary of Cochrane that worked at the Warp five facility.  Archer met
    him there at age 8.                              "Singularity" [ENT]

Tau Ceti Accords - A treaty between the Vulcans and the Andorians.  According to Capt. Sopek of the
    Ni'Var, it was a violation of the Tau Ceti Accords for Andorians to be on Coridan.
                                                           "Shadows of P'Jem" [ENT]
    Ambassador V'Lar negotiated the first territorial accords between Vulcan and Andoria ca. 2060.
    It is possible that these were the Tau Ceti Accords.
                                                           "Fallen Hero" [ENT]

Tavin - SEE: Vulcan Individuals, Tavin.

Taylor - male.  Steward.  Daniel's roommate and a messy one at that... Daniels jokingly remarked
    that he must have majored in Chaos theory.   He seems to have normally worked the morning shift,
    since Archer noticed Daniels was serving him but that it should have been Taylor.  Daniels explained
    that he had switched with him.           "Cold Front" [ENT]

Taylor, Jane (Kipleigh Brown) - female crewman.  She served on Enterprise for 3 years from 2151
Jane Taylor    to Feb 2154  when she and seventeen others were killed in the Xindi attack at Azati Prime.
    She died right outside her quarters when the section she was in (identified as either
6 or 7 of C deck) decompressed.  She was heading to her station and, had she
    made it "a few more meters," she would have survived the attack. She was an EPS control
    specialist and was able to repair fused power relays which Tucker was unable to isolate
    himself.  Capt. Brody was pretty angry when Tucker pulled her off the Saratoga to work
    on Rostov's team on the Enterprise.  Rostov used to play practical jokes on her.  Tucker
    told her she'd make a fine chief engineer some day.  One time, she found a glitch in the injector assembly
    that everyone else had missed. 
    Her rank was somewhat unclear. Like her fellow engineer Rostov, she was referred to in dialog as
    "crewman" (an enlisted grade), although her uniform rank pips were those of a lieutenant. Other
    indicators that Taylor could have held officer rank are that She appeared to have her own quarters,
    which was unusual for enlisted personnel during this period. (
"The Undiscovered Country" ST5)
    and Tucker believed that she was on her way to becoming a chief engineer - although this is not
    entirely impossible for an enlisted person, it would have been unusual.

                                                                "The Forgotten" [ENT]

Tea - A beverage prepared by taking the dried leaves of a plant and soaking them in boiling water.
    Tea is a common drink aboard Enterprise.
    Captain Archer and Commander Tucker drink iced tea with dinner
                                                             "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    SubCommander T'Pol prefers hot green tea.  Tucker advises that she avoid the Zariphean blend.
                                                             "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]
    The Akaali also drink tea.                   "Civilization" [ENT]
    Archer likes iced tea flavored with passion fruit.
                                                             "Fallen Hero" [ENT]

"Teachings of Surak, The" - A book given by T'Pol to Archer to read while he was on vacation in Risa.
                                                            "Two Days and Two Nights" [ENT]

Telescope - The balconies of the hotel rooms at Risa had telescopes on them.
                                                            "Two Days and Two Nights" [ENT]
    SEE Also:  Graviton Telescope

Tellarite - SEE:  Alien races, Tellarites.

Telurian plague - One of the most dangerous pathogens known in the 22nd century. Stocks of Telurian plague
    were stored aboard Cold Station 12 for study. They were stolen by Malik in 2154, who intended to use them
    as biogenic weapons.                      "Cold Station 12" [ENT], "The Augments" [ENT]
    By 2368, there was still no cure for the Telurian plague. Doctor Beverly Crusher was curious if one had been
    found by the 26th century. She asked time-traveler Berlinghoff Rasmussen if he knew whether or not the disease
    had been cured, but Captain Jean-Luc Picard did not allow him to answer out of respect for the integrity of the
    timeline.                                          "A Matter of Time" [TNG]

Temporal Accord - According to Daniels, All species that had time travel agreed in a Temporal Accord
    it would only be used for research.  Daniels points out a group from 2769 watching the construction of
    the pyramids and fully obeying the terms of the Accord, so I'm assuming the agreement was ratified before
    that date.  However, when time-travel is involved, dates lose their significance, so I'm not sure we can
    pin this fact down.                              "Cold Front" [ENT]
    Since history never recorded the disaster, the faction that the Suliban work with violated the Temporal
    Accord when they destroyed the Paragaan mining colony.
                                                               "Shockwave, part 1" [ENT]

Temporal Anthropologists - Temporal anthropologists from 2769  were watching the construction of the
    Great Pyramid at Giza.  It is not known if this refers to them watching from their own time period or an
    actual visitation in which they keep their presence secret.
                                                                "Cold Front" [ENT]
    Kirk was involved in Temporal anthropology.
                                                                "Assignment: Earth" [ENT]
    It is implied that Rasmussen stole his timeship from a temporal anthropologist.
                                                                "A Matter of Time" [ENT]

Temporal beacon - One of the the Xindi (only one?) wore a temporal beacon which was a disc-shaped
    belt device.  The beacon was detectable by adjusting a hand held scanner to a delta band frequency, and
    was made inoperable by phase pistol fire.
                                                                "Carpenter Street" [ENT]

Temporal chamber- A room in the Suliban Helix that connects two different time periods for
    communication.  Silik uses the temporal chamber to receive orders from and report to the humanoid figure.
    In the chamber, the flow of time and the usual rules of causality are altered.
                                                               "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Temporal Cold War - A condition of rivalry, mistrust, and often open hostility just short of overt
    violence and sustained military action between power groups which are capable of utilizing time travel.
    The Suliban Cabal are soldiers in a temporal cold war.
                                                                 "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Daniel's side believes that the 22nd century is a front in the "temporal cold war".
    This conflict also concerns ideological differences over the limitations which should or should not be
    set on the parties who possess time travel technology and its use.  SEE:  Temporal Accord
                                                              "Cold Front" [ENT]

Temporal displacement drive - According to Daniel's portable database, the derelict ship from the
    future was equipped with a temporal displacement drive.
                                                                 "Future Tense" [ENT]

Temporal Observatory - Daniels pulls an ovoid suitcase from his locker and removes an ovoid device.
Temporal Observatory    Activated, he calls the surrounding holographic display "a temporal
    observatory".   He identifies one node as anthropologists from
    2769 watching the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
                      "Cold Front" [ENT]

Temporal radiation - The Tholians demanded that the derelict future ship be turned over to them,
    and warned of dangerous temporal radiation.  T'Pol detected "some kind of high-energy particles"
    emanating from the time pod, and is worried that the radiation could spread.
                                                                "Future Tense" [ENT]

Temporal tags - Daniels gives Archer a box of blue-glowing "temporal tags" to mark anachronistic items
    for return to Archer's time.                 "Carpenter Street" [ENT]

Teneebian amethyst - Extraordinarily large and flawless crystal.  Some criminals thought Shran stole it
    and kidnapped his daughter to blackmail him into giving it to them.
                                                              "These are the Voyages..." [ENT]

Teneebian moon - A natural satellite of the Teneebian planet.  Ensign Mayweather has visited both of
    the Teneebian moons.  In the original script they were Andorian moons but were changed because
    the writers wanted to introduce the Andorians later in the series.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Teneebian Skunk - Ryan claims that one of the kids aboard Fortunate has a "Teneebian skunk".
                                                                "Fortunate Son" [ENT]

Tension Headache - T'Pol described her symptoms and admitted not having slept in 2 days.  Dr. Phlox
    diagnosed that she was suffering from a tension headache and gave her a hypo of  "analgesic".
                                                                "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Teraphasic - Xyrillian ships have teraphasic warp coils.
                                                               "Unexpected" [ENT]

Termites - A type of pale-colored social insect having soft bodies and living in colonies composed of
    winged forms that mate, and also sterile wingless workers and soldiers.  There are 5000 subspecies of
    termites on Loracus Prime.                "Strange New World" [ENT]

Terra Nova - SEE:  Novans .

Terrellian plague - The "Terrellian plague" starts out as a simple headache.
                                                              "Singularity" [ENT]
    It is often used in hyperbole or as an exaggerating comparative: "It's heartburn, Neelix, not the Terrellian
"                                             "Message in a Bottle" [VOY]

Tesnian - Their ship inexplicably collided with Ent during docking, destroying itself, damaging Enterprise,
    and strewing debris across an asteroid.  Fortunately their "escape pods" worked.  The Tesnians are
    rattled; most had been aboard for years.  34 of the Tesnian passengers were rescued.  Phlox can fit
    only 12 in the decon chamber at a time; they need at least 6 hours of boron gas per day;  fortunately
    Enterprise has enough for the ferry ride home to "Tesnia".  "Astrometrics" detected what could be
    "micro-singularities" in the asteroid field; and unusual charged particles were detected as the Tesnian
    ship docked, which could account for the accident.
                                                               "Shuttlepod One" [ENT]

Tessik Prime - a month prior on Tessik Prime, where Cwn. Fisher contracted Rigellian fever.
                                                               "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Tetracyanate six two two -  Phlox determines that the disfiguring disease that some of the Akaali are
    suffering from is caused by contamination of the groundwater.  They are being poisoned by
    "tetracyanate 6-2-2"; it's a toxic synthetic compound usually used as an industrial lubricant.  Archer
    reports that "a veridium isotope" is being mined, and the drill bits are saturated with tetracyanate.
    The molecular structure on his monitor has a highly branched structure and has three 6-sided rings.
    The number is "622" (like "Invar 36"), may denote one of an entire series of compounds; or "6,2,2"
    (like "2,2',4,4',6-pentabromodiphenylether"), an IUPAC-like shorthand denoting which sites on the
    backbone have been functionalized; or "<6,2,2>" indicating the direction of crystal axes; etc.
    Presumably, it was Dr. Phlox who provided the medicine that will cure the Akaali; only one dose is
    needed.                                             "Civilization" [ENT]
    Tetracyanate is perhaps related to tricyanate, a toxic substance that can be neutralized with hytritium
                                                              TNG:"The Most Toys"

Tetrasol - a blue fluid;  doctor Phlox used 5cc's of tetrasol in an alternate treatment for Porthos' condition.
                                                            "A Night in Sickbay" [ENT]

Tetrazine - A highly volatile gas which is produced as a byproduct in certain mining operations, such as
    were being conducted at the Paraagan mining colony.  There, it settled at a height of 45 to 50 km up
    in the atmosphere.  About the only thing hot enough to ignite it is exhaust plasma.  When tetrazine is
    ignited by plasma exhaust there's only one outcome you can be sure of... traces of borocarbons.
                                                            "Shockwave, part 1" [ENT]

Thera - SEE:  Xyrillian, Homeworld

Thermal Scanners - On the bridge, Tucker and T'Pol prepaare the probes for a science mission: to
    study a planet that has shifted its orbit between two gas giants; Starfleet predicts that the stresses will
    superheat its core and cause spectacular volcanism.  The probes will have thermal scanners and
    imaging relays.  Enterprise will drop six or seven in high orbit.
                                                            "Horizon" [ENT]

Thermobaric clouds - The Delphic Expanse is surrounded by thick layers of thermobaric clouds.  One
    Vulcan ship took almost 6 hours to get through.  Enterprise entered the clouds at 0.2 impulse and it
    took them more than 6 hours to get through.  They launched a communications buoy while inside the
    clouds so they could keep in contact with Starfleet.
                                                           "The Expanse" [ENT]
    Two Osaarian merchant ships had entered the Expanse, scouting for trade routes,
    but the thermobaric clouds wouldn't permit their exit; one ship was destroyed trying.
                                                            "Anomaly" [ENT]
    After the Spheres were destroyed, T'Pol could only detect a small section of the thermobaric cloud barrier
    but it appeared to be dissipating as the Expanse returned to normal space.
                                                              "Zero Hour" [ENT]

Thermobaric perimeter - A Vulcan ship, the Seleya, was attempting to chart the "thermobaric perimeter"
    of the Delphic Expanse, but reported itself caught in a "subspace eddy" and was pulled in.
                                                             "Impulse" [ENT]

Thermo-kinetic explosion - Reed reports a "thermo-kinetic explosion" (caused by a Romulan mine) on
    the "port-forward quarter", across "C-Deck" and "D-Deck"  in which eight "subsections" were
    decompressed.                                 "Minefield" [ENT]

Thermosphere - The part of a planet's atmosphere above the mesopause, characterized by a great rise
    in temperature.                                  "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Theta band - A range of subspace carrier waves often associated with background subspace radiation.
                                                              "Chain of Command, part 1" [TNG]
    When the derelict Axanar ship wasn't answering Enterprise's attempts at communication, Hoshi
    wanted to try hailing them on the Theta-band frequencies.
                                                               "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    In 2369, Starfleet Intelligence was led to believe that the Cardassians were utilizing theta-band emissions
    as a delivery system for a powerful mutagenic weapon.  Captain Picard who had conducted extensive
    tests on theta-band emissions while in command of the Stargazer, was the only active Starfleet officer
    familiar with those systems.              "Chain of Command, part 1" [TNG]
    Paris suggests to Rain that she might try using a theta band filter to improve the curves on her fourier
    spectral analysis.                               "Future's End, part 1" [VOY]

Tholia - An unknown proper noun spoken by Klaang while delirious in the Enterprise sickbay in 2151.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    This is most likely a reference to the home planet of the Tholians, first seen in "The Tholian Web" (TOS).
    While humans and Vulcans didn't recognize the name, it may be that the Klingons have had contact
    with the Tholians before the 2150s.  SEE: Tholians

Thoris (Joel Swetow) -                        "Terra Prime" [ENT]

Throttle - The equipment that controls the output of an engine, and therefore, the speed of a ship.
                                                             "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Thruster - A propulsion device used for maneuvering and slow movement.  After taking a hit from the
    Suliban hand weapons, the starboard thruster on the shuttlepod goes out.  The crew manages to take
    off and make it back to the ship anyway.  (Since there are 4 thrusters on the shuttle, and assuming
    that there needs to be at least two thrusters operating on opposite sides for the shuttle to maneuver
    and fly, the "starboard thruster" probably only refers to thruster #4.)
                                                             "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    When the shuttlepod tries to land in the windstorm, "thruster four" is knocked out, (all four throats
    still glow blue, so either this was only an instrument error, or perhaps the thruster was still working
    but control of it was lost.)                "Strange New World" [ENT]

Thruster quad - Tucker can't find even a thruster quad on the derelict future ship.
                                                            "Future Tense" [ENT]

Ticonderoga  -  A Cargo ship destroyed by Romulan Drone(s).
                                                              "The Aenar" [ENT]

Time Chamber - SEE: Temporal chamber.

Timeline - The Sphere builders are capable of monitoring timelines.  They saw that the number of
    timelines with favorable outcomes had diminished, meaning that there was an increased chance that
    the NX-01 would thwart their plans.  But timelines are sensitive - They are prone to temporary
    fluctuations.  This however, was not a fluctuation, it was a trajectory away from their desired
    outcome of Earth's destruction.        "The Council" [ENT], "Zero Hour" [ENT]

Time lock - A room connecting the temporal chamber to the rest of the Suliban Helix.  The time lock
    acclimates personnel to the altered space-time within the chamber.
                                                             "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Time Portal - When Daniels brings Archer into the future, he reports that all the time portals
    have been destroyed.                        "Shockwave" [ENT]

Time Travel - The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that Time Travel is impossible.  Daniels
    explains that Time Travel is far more complicated than what you would expect from an H.G. Wells novel.
                                                              "Shockwave, part 2" [ENT]

Ti'Mur - SEE:  Vulcan ships, Ti'Mur

Titan - The largest moon of Saturn.  Starfleet's Omega training mission was held on Titan.
                                                             "Strange New World" [ENT]

T'Mir - SEE:  Vulcan Individuals, T'Mir

Tolaris - SEE:  Vulcan, Tolaris

Torpedo - A self-propelled projectile used to attack enemy ships.
Torpedo    According to Reed, it only takes "moments" to arm a few torpedoes.
                                        "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    The number "0298166" can be seen stenciled on a torpedo.
                                        "Silent Enemy" [ENT]
    The detonation circuits of a Romulan cloaked mine resemble those of a "Triton-class Spatial Torpedo",
        of which Reed has disarmed "at least half a dozen".
                                                            "Minefield" [ENT]
    The target discriminators prevent torpedoes from mistaking Enterprise's own nacelles for that of an
        enemy ships.                               "Singularity" [ENT]

Torpedo Guidance System - After the attack by the Osaarians in the anomaly, Reed had to modify the
    torpedo guidance systems.  It delayed his repair of the phase canons.
                                                              "Anomaly" [ENT]

Torpedo, Photon - The retrofit that Enterprise underwent in 2153 included an upgrade to the weapons
    system and Photon torpedoes to replace the Spatial torpedoes they had been using.
                                                           "The Expanse" [ENT]
    Reed tells Archer that they were lucky that all the torpedoes were in "safe mode" when an anomaly
    hit them or they might have gone off.
                                                            "Proving Ground" [ENT]

Torpedo Launchers - As of spring 2152, Reed obtained permission to add a third person to the Armory
    full-time to free up Ens. Tanner to begin upgrades to the torpedo launchers.
                                                            "Minefield" [ENT]
    After the Xindi mission, the NX-02 was fitted with Ventral and dorsal torpedo launchers as per
    Archer's recommendations.              "Home" [ENT]

Torpedo tube - A tube for launching torpedoes.  Enterprise has four torpedo tubes on the underside of
Torpedo Tube    it's saucer and one aft-facing tube in it's external pod.
                                         "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Archer made reference to a "port" and "starboard" tube, which would suggest that the ship
    only has two forward tubes, but there are clearly four holes at the appropriate location.

Tos - SEE:  Vulcan, Tos

T'pol, SubCommander (Jolene Blalock) - SEE:  T'Pol

Tractor beam - A piece of advanced technology allowing for the remote manipulation of objects.  While
    humans have yet to develop tractor beam technology, the Klingons have it.
                                                                "Unexpected" [ENT]
    and the Vulcans have it.                        "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]
    When Archer refuses to hand over the derelict time ship, the Tholians, aft of ENT, project a conical
    green tractor beam and lock onto the Enterprise while still at warp.  Archer orders "hull plating" and
    "aft torpedoes"; but Reed reports the beam is interfering with "targeting scans".   Later, the Tholians
    tractor the future derelict time ship after the Enterprise releases it.
                                                                "Future Tense" [ENT]
    The Andorians used a tractor beam to pull the Enterprise out of an anomaly.
                                                                "Proving Ground" [ENT]

Tractocite - The leader of a three member party of Denobulan geologists studying the caves on
    Xantoras said he spent 14 years searching for "tractocites this perfect".  The tractocites could
    provide clues to prevent seismic disasters on Denobula.
                                                                "The Breach" [ENT]

Trade complex - A building made up of interconnecting structures for the business of buying and selling
    The trade complex on Rigel X has 36 levels with docking ports on the roof (the Enterprise shuttlepod
    was at docking port 3).  It is regulated by Central Security.  On level 19 in the easternmost subsection
    by the geothermal shafts is a Klingon enclave, and live food is available there.  This was the location of
    a meeting between Klaang and Sarin in 2151.  Captain Archer led a landing party down to the trade
    complex in an attempt to locate the kidnapped Klaang.
                                                               "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Transceiver- A device functioning both as a transmitter and/or a receiver as required.
    The transceiver was found to be intact on the Axanar ship.
                                                                "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Commander Tucker discovered that T'Pol was receiving covert communications when he noticed a
    power surge in Enterprise's transceiver array.
                                                                 "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]
    Hoshi was running a diagnostic of the subspace transceiver array after the launch of Echo two, their
    second subspace-amplifier.                   "Silent Enemy" [ENT]
    After encountering an anomaly, the transceiver was one of the systems that went out.  It was still
    out even after Reed got emergency power.  Hoshi managed to get it back online (the warp drive had
    not been fixed yet so I assume warp power is not necessary for this particular system.)
                                                                  "Anomaly" [ENT]

Transdimensional Disturbance - The Enterprise encountered a Transdimensional disturbance.  It
    had an orange-bubbly appearance.     "Harbinger" [ENT]
    The Enterprise encountered another newly created transdimensional disturbance in the process of
    rapidly reconfiguring the region of space between them and Azati Prime.  This time it had a
    purple-cloudy appearance.  It would have taken two weeks to go around it, but since it was newly
    formed the space wasn't entirely reconfigured yet.  The decision was made to go through it.  At
    warp 4 it would have taken less than an hour, but Tucker wasn't happy using the warp engines
    inside the phenomenon, so they had to take 4 days at impulse speeds.  The properties of trans-
    dimensional space damages the neocortex of humans (permanent damage in minutes, death in hours)
    and of Vulcans (severity unknown), but it only has a subtle, slow effect on Denobulans.
    Denobulans are relatively immune to the effects but will be effected after prolonged exposure.
    Canines and Phlox's menagerie are unaffected.  However the effects can be counteracted by dampening
    the crew's neurological activity (essentially, by placing the crew into a comatose state while in the
    affected region).                                 "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]
    Phlox was able to synthesize a neuroleptic compound that was meant to keep the crew conscious in
    the transformed space for approximately 12 minutes.  He was able to extend that time to 15 minutes
    but nothing could be done about epidermal (skin) decay.
                                                                "Zero Hour" [ENT]

Transfer Conduits - the two horizontal conduits, of rectangular cross-section, at the "control panel"
    end of the warp reactor (the big cylinder).  The antimatter input (although not necessarily heavy-duty
    injectors, TNG-style) is through these.
                                                               "Cold Front" [ENT]
    There are 8 of them.   NX-01 managed to get Seven of them back on line, but the eighth was still giving
    them some trouble.  Trip asked if a phase diagnostic had been run.  Kelby responded that it came
    back negative.  So Trip decided that they better work up a bypass.
                                                                "Bound" [ENT]

Translation matrix - by running speech through the translation matrix it makes it easier for alien
    species to decipher and understand.   "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Commander Tucker had to run Sub-Commander T'Pol's Vulcan messages through the translation matrix
    before reading them.                             "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Transport Vessel - Enterprise encounters a transport vessel while investigating a stellar nursery.  The
    transport vessel is much smaller than Ent.  It is transporting pilgrims to witness the Great Plume of
    Agosoria.  Archer extends an invitation to its captain (Fraddock) and its passengers to come aboard
    the Enterprise.  It extends a tube and docks to a port on the starboard edge of the saucer.
                                                                  "Cold Front" [ENT]

Transporter - SEE: Transporters.

Transtator assembly - Trip said that the alien repair station repaired a "transtator assembly" in 15-min,
    a job for which his crew would've needed a week.
                                                               "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Trelkis Three - A planet with multi-centric rings that Travis wanted to visit when he was young.
                                                                "Horizon" [ENT]

Trellium -     Trellium is an alloy that protects against spatial anomalies.  Ships in the Expanse used it
    to insulate their hulls.                         "Home" [ENT]
    Trellium exists in at least two forms: -A and -D.  Only -D is useful for insulating against the Expanse's
    anomalies.  Trellium-A is extremely common and easily synthesized, but Trellium-D is rare, and
    difficult to process.  Trellium-D can only be synthesized in the liquid state.  Its just as effective as
    the natural ore, but the process is tricky -- it requires extremely precise calculations.  Its extremely
    volatile (explosive) but only in its liquid form.  However, once emplaced and allowed to set, it's stable
    and safe. When T'Pol and Tucker tried to synthesize it, they reached a critical point when the
    molecular pressure was at 1100 units, Tucker started to increase theta bombardment by 6% but then
    decided on 7%, the pressure was still rising, first 1400 units, then 1430.  It was decided to kill the
    theta radiation altogether, and try a sustained burst of delta radiation which might do the trick, but
    T'Pol was skeptical. Tucker ramped the delta to 80%, but the pressure continued to climb up to
    2000 units.  Tucker and T'Pol got out just in time before it exploded.  T'Pol thought that some of
    their calculations might have been slightly off.
                                                                "Rajiin" [ENT]
    Enterprise encounters an asteroid field loaded with trellium ore.  They board a derelict Vulcan
    ship and while exploring see a bulkhead that is half-smeared with blue trellium.  Phlox discovers that
    trellium-D is a potent neurotoxin to Vulcans -- it "disrupts the synaptic pathways that control emotions".
    Tucker objects that he and T'Pol have been working with it for weeks, but the doctor points out that
    they never successfully synthesized it.
                                                                 "Impulse" [ENT]
    After being exposed to the trellium aboard the Seleya, T'Pol found that it affected her in ways that
    she wasn't prepared for.  She discovered that she could access certain emotions and she wanted more.
    Despite the fact that trellium is deadly to Vulcans she devised a way to inject it into her bloodstream.
    After using the trellium for three months, it caused significant damage to her neural pathways.  Her
    emotions became more difficult to control and suppress.  She may have to learn to live with them.

Trena’L - SEE:  Xyrillians, Trena'L

Triaxialating Signal - Hoshi can not trace an audio-only transmission from Coridan rebels, since its
    a triaxialating signal.                         "Shadows of P'Jem" [ENT]
    When asked if she was on a secure frequency, Hoshi answered that she was triaxialating the signal
    and that it wouldn't be picked up even if they were in the middle of Starfleet Headquarters.  The
    Tandarans detected some unusual energy readings which they at first thought were random interference
    but after examining the readings more closely, they were able to determine where they were coming
    from.                                                  "Detained" [ENT]

Triaxian silk - The alien trader D'marr offered some triaxian silk for another protein resequencer.
                                                             "Oasis" [ENT]

Tribble - A soft, furry warm-blooded animal.
    In 2153 they are extremely difficult to acquire because they've been outlawed on most worlds --
    Never-the-less, much to Ensign Sato's dismay, Phlox managed to get one to feed to his pets in
    sickbay.  They aren't really dangerous; far from it...  All they are capable of doing is eating and
    breeding.  The problem is that they breed prodigiously.  The only thing that keeps their
    population in check is the abundance of reptiles on their homeworld.
                                                            "The Breach" [ENT]
    Cyrano Jones gave one to Uhura.   They have no teeth.  They're soft, furry and they make a pleasant
    sound.  Their purr / trilling  seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system.  Mr.
    Spock protested that he was immune to its effects but appeared to be affected none-the-less.
    Almost 50% of the creature's metabolism is geared for reproduction.  If you feed a tribble too much
    it doesn't get fat... it reproduces.  When they get near Klingons they emit a shrieking noise.  They
    are born pregnant, and are bisexual, reproducing at will.  Under the conditions at space station K7,
    allowing for the amount of quadrotriticale grain they would consume, and the size of the storage
    compartment they had to multiply in, each tribble should have been able to have an average litter of
    10, and they would produce a new generation every 12 hours.  Spock estimated there were 1771561
    tribbles on the station after 3 days.
                                                              "The Trouble with Tribbles" [TOS], "Trials and Tribble-ations" [DS9]
    In 2269 Cyrano Jones trafficked in a pink colored breed of tribble that was supposedly safe. Instead
    of breeding many individual young when overfed, these new tribbles were colony creatures, creating
    dozens of tribbles within their expanding bodies. When McCoy treated them with neo-ethylene they
    burst and spilt out the individual tribbles. Scott beamed the tribble colonies over to the Klingon ship
    when Kirk instructed him to implement Plan B. The Klingons burst the tribble colonies with disruptor
    fire.                                                   "More Tribbles, More Troubles" [TAS]
    They are seen in the bar visited by McCoy.
                                                              "The Search for Spock" [ST3]

Tricobolt - The Romulan cloaked mine contained tricobolt explosives.
                                                            "Minefield" [ENT]
    The Mirror-Tholians wanted to lure a ship from another universe, so they detonated a tricobalt device
    near a "dead star," creating a rift, into which they broadcast a distress signal.
                                                            "In a Mirror Darkly" [ENT]

Tricyclic plasma drive - Suliban ships utilize tricyclic plasma drives.  Very hard to track unless your
    sensors can pick up and analyze plasma decay.
                                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Trifluorinate compound - Used to seal teeth to prevent tooth decay.

Triglobulin - Material released into the Axanar bloodstream by their zymuth gland.  It is similar to
    human lymphatic fluid and is used to create medicines, and vaccines.  It is quite a common practice
    for some species to even use it as an aphrodisiac.  The NX-01 happened upon a derelict ship that an
    alien race had attacked.  They left behind a biopump that was being used to collect triglobulin from
    the 15 Axanar corpses which were found there.
                                                              "Fight or Flight" [ENT]

"Triglobulin Harvesters" - For lack of anything else to call them, I've adopted this name.  These are the aliens
    who attacked and were attempting to drain the Axanar of their triglobulin.  One of the Axanar was
    killed with a lethal dose of chloraxine, and 3 were done in by particle weapons.  The damage to the
    Axanar ship was also consistent with high-yield particle impact weapons.  They have advanced
    technology on their ship.  The Enterprise detected them approaching at a distance of 60000 km and it
    took them 10 minutes (maybe less) to close that distance.  The Enterprise's sensors were not able to
    penetrate their shielding to be able to tell what kind of weapons they had, but they were able to tell
    when they charged them.  The aliens are capable of performing submolecular bioscans.  Their ships
    can emit a "stabilizing" beam that captures their enemy and disrupts their propulsions systems.
    They fired a green beam which damaged and completely depolarized the port nacelle.  When the
    distance between ships closed to 10 meters the aliens began drilling into the hull.  Their vessel's power
    signature matched scans of the biopumps they left on the Axanar ship.
                                                            "Fight or Flight" [ENT]

Trillius Prime - A planet.  The captain told Tucker that Ensign Mayweather had been to Trillius Prime.
    It took Travis the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades to get there. Could this be the Trill homeworld which
    in the other series has simply been called Trill?
                                                               "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Trinary system - The Enterprise encountered a "class-4 black hole" in trinary system.  The "Vulcan
    star charts" indicate the Vulcans have charted over 2000 black holes, but never one in a trinary.
                                                              "Singularity" [ENT]

Trinesium - A material that can withstand 18,000 degrees.  The Vissians have been constructing their
    starship hulls out of it for over a century.
                                                                "Cogenitor" [ENT]

Tritanium - Trip said it would take 3-4-months to repair the damage from the Romulan mine, even if
    he found sufficient "tritanium alloy".   "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Tritanium Cobalt - Archer needed six kilos of Tritanium Cobalt to buy one his crew members on an
    Orion slave market.  Then he needed three more kilos to bribe the guard to leave the neurolytic
    restraint on the slave after deactivating it.  Tucker said that the total of nine kilos was half their supply.
                                                                  "Borderland" [ENT]

Triton class Spatial Torpedo - SEE: Torpedo

Tropolisine - a "psychotropic compound with hallucinogenic effects"; it's normally found in
    certain flowering plants, and is carried on their pollen.  Symptoms can include headaches,
    hallucinations, distorted vision, and increasing paranoia.  If one is removed from the source of the
    tropolisine, lucidity will return in about 3 to 4 hours.  An Enterprise landing party suffered from
    tropolisine hallucinations in 2151.  But in this particular case, each tropolisine atom contained an
    extra neutron.  A submolecular scan could've detected them but there was no reason to run such
    a scan.  When this neutron breaks down, a toxin is released that is fatal if not treated soon with inaprovaline
    SEE: Strange New World.
    Note: the phrase "each tropolisine atom" causes some problems.  Perhaps tropolisine is a new
    element and its name is likely assigned to it by its medical history, rather than its physical
    composition.  But Phlox earlier had called it a compound.  It might be that Phlox was talking about
    each atom in the tropolisine molecule; he could be saying that "each carbon, nitrogen, etc. atom contains
    an extra neutron, but that would be highly unlikely.  Most probably, the tropolisine molecule contains
    one "special" atom, sort of like the
iron atom in hemoglobin.  This atom may have been an unstable
    isotope with extra neutrons that would break down, the radioactive decay of the one atom would
    cause it to become a different element and the tropolisine molecule would be converted into a toxin.

Tucker III, Commander Charles "Trip"(Connor Trinneer) - SEE: Tucker

Turbolift - An "elevator" aboard starships that travels through both vertical and horizontal turboshafts
    to reach many destinations on the ship.
                                                            "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Trip tells Archer he might need an engineer to help him figure out how to use the turbolifts on the
    alien ship.                                        "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Trip and T'Pol take the turbolift; Trip presses a single button for their destination.
