A grandparent was a name used to describe one's ancestor, namely the parent of one's parent, where the subject in question would be the grandparent's grandchild. Each previous generation of the initial grandparent was given the qualifier of "great", which was then compounded. (ENT: "Future Tense"; VOY: "Future's End", "Live Fast and Prosper", "Scientific Method"; TOS: "Return to Tomorrow")

Worf often spoke of his parent's, Sergio and Helena Rozhenko, to his son Alexander as "your grandparents". (TNG: "New Ground")

Deanna Troi's grandfather was someone she spent time with on Betazed while growing up. She later described him as a man who rarely spoke, noting that talking was for off-worlders and people who didn't know any better.

When Troi got older, the only time she could remember his stories was when she went home to Betazed and sat by the fireplace, adding that at times, when she was alone there, it was almost like she could hear his voice inside her head. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder")
