A gravimetric distortion was a localized spatial anomaly that consisted of an abnormal concentration of graviton particles. Normally, gravitons concentrated around objects with definite mass, such as a planet or star. However, certain energy phenomena could emit gravitons without an attendant mass. Such a concentration could cause unique gravitational effects that greatly impaired starship navigation. (DS9: "Behind the Lines")
In certain cases, strong gravimetric distortions can severely damage or completely destroy a starship. (Star Trek Generations)
When Renovation Team Nova began collapsing a subspace sinkhole with antigraviton beams in 2375, those in the subspace pocket circumscribed by the anomaly experienced gravimetric distortions. (VOY: "Gravity")
