Science: Astrophysics Refrence 3 - Additional phenomenia

=== -Quantum filament- ===
A quantum filament is a closed loop of twisted space with interesting and unpredictable physical effects. Filaments are usually formed in supernovas and although they normally are not very dangerous, they should be avoided.

EX: Star Trek: Generations (I think a supernova was mistaken for a quantum filament by Ent D crew... requires verficiation)

=== -Nebula- ===
A nebula is any region of space in which interstellar matter density is significantly higher than the average. Nebulas may result from stellar explosions or from "pile-up" due to passage of gravitational density waves. Supernovae are one main cause of nebulae. The life of a nebula starts out as standard formation of a discernible cloud in space that is virtually in it's large peak. From there elements, particles, molecules, gases, and other matter fuse and stabilize. Properties vary from the kind of materials collected. After the nebula forms it slowly over centuries shrinks as matter slowly begins deteriorated of energy and leaving the cloud or dispersing. During this time new stars may form which will lead to solar systems within the nebula.

Ex: Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan

=== -Cosmic String- ===
A cosmic string is somewhat similar to a quantum filament. It is gravitational well of space that continuously drags into itself in a vertical manner due to it's immense mass leading to intense gravitational pull. Energy almost rips into space-time at the core of a cosmic string and is kept there by the pull. There is little data on how it is formed and little theorization. However the most plausible explanation is that if two stars nova close enough to each other to have their expelled energy combine that the combination of energy, matter and gravitational outburst would cause a cosmic string to form. They are to be avoided at all costs. The center of a cosmic string will destroy any object.

Ex. "Evolution" TNG Season 3

=== -Space Dwelling Life form- ===
There are many space-dwelling beings that vary in structure and appearance throughout the galaxy. Some are artificially created and some presumed to have formed near the barrier of the galaxy's core where various gases are plentiful and conditions able to form one.

Ex. Gometu, Geki, Farpoint Station Creature

=== RELATED PARALLEL: Dyson Sphere- ===
A Dyson sphere is an artificially constructed sphere surrounding a star. Creation of such a sphere is beyond current Federation technology, but one such sphere has been discovered by the U.S.S. Enterprise-D and visited as well as the U.S.S. Vindicator. Infrared signatures presumed to belong to several such spheres have been observed in Federation astrometry surveys. The canonical Dyson sphere would have an internal surface area many times the total surface area of all the Federation's inhabited planets.

Ex: "Relics" TNG Season 6

=== OMEGA Particles ===
A Particle of dangerous volatile capability, which can also destroy the subspace, creating a subspace rift. Star Fleet has always sought to destroy these particle rather than allow them to render warp travel in the circumstance that they may self-detonate. Additionally, the first know use of OMEGA particles was at a star base which sub spatial imploded rendering a rift which remains to this date incapable of anything but a very limited use of warp bubbles.


=== chroniton particles ===
Particles too which are believed to exist and congregate on vessels having recently utilized warp travel. The Borg used chroniton particles travel back in time in attempt to assimilate Earth, but was thwarted by the Enterprise E commanded by Captain Jean Luc Picard. Additionally, his chief engineer utilized chroniton particles still present from the time travel wake to return the ship and crew to Normal timeline (or at least one they could live with)

EX: Star Trek: First Contact

sort of mostly formatting I did on this... I moved some of the things around... I have added input on one or two of these... probably should add: Crusher Particles.
