A displacement wave was an artificially-generated, highly-energetic phenomenon, characterized as a polarized magnetic variation, used by the advanced alien being known as "the Caretaker" to transport ships to the Delta Quadrant.

In 2371, the Caretaker used this technique to transport a number of vessels to his location, in an attempt to find a lifeform genetically compatible with himself, in order to procreate to produce an offspring capable of continuing his mission of caring for the Ocampa. Among the vessels transported to the Delta Quadrant were Chakotay's Maquis ship, the USS Voyager, the USS Equinox, a Cardassian Template:ShipClass vessel, and the Dreadnought missile. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Dreadnought", "The Voyager Conspiracy", "Equinox")
