Anti-gravity repeller technology used in hand-held grips or pallets to allow handling of overly massive cargo, and in medical rehabilitation therapy. Two antigravs were attached to Nomad to move the robot...
DNA reference scan
Medical procedure to test and confirm the identity of an individual by matching DNA patterns with those on file. Kajada, a Kobliad security officer, requested Doctor Julian Bashir perform a DNA reference...
energy containment cell
Otherwise undescribed disease which approximated death in a patient -- possibly a Bajoran if Doctor Bashir's off-station medical mission is short-ranged -- and even fooled a tricorder until Doctor Bashir...
retinal imaging scan
Mechanisms used to fine-tune interpretations of magentic scans. One device used by the U.S.S. Rio Grande in 2369 to search for the Yangtzee Kiang was mounted on probes to pick up magnetic deflections from...
Energy Transfer, Bajor
With Federation aid, Bajor planned to make its first-ever large-scale energy transfer to the planet by tapping the molten core of its one-time inhabited fifth moon, Jeraddo, to heat a few hundred thousand...
self-sealing stem bolts
Part of the structure of Deep Space Nine. The habitant ring encircles the central core of the station, and is primarily filled with quarters and other living facilities for personnel. Three runabout launch...
