At least 1,000 years prior to the 22nd century, a race of transdimensional beings constructed a series of massive spheres, each one of which generated massive amounts of gravimetric energy. Powerful spatial anomalies existed wherever the gravimetric waves intersected, constituting an area of space known as the Delphic Expanse. (ENT: "Anomaly", "Exile")
On an NX class vessel, the energy output must be confined between three hundred and three hundred and twelve millicochranes to prevent fusion of the dilithium matrix while restarting a warp reactor, unless the ship is within two parsecs of a class C gravimetric field. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")
In 2371, Jadzia Dax discovered unusual gravimetric distortions in the Trialus system in the Gamma Quadrant, shortly before the planet Meridian appeared for the first time in sixty years. (DS9: "Meridian")
In an alternate timeline, Captain Nog warned Jake Sisko while trying to rescue Benjamin Sisko that the Bajoran wormhole was going to kick out a gravimetric wave like it did when it was undergoing a subspace inversion that nearly destroyed the USS Defiant in 2372. (DS9: "The Visitor")
In 2373, Quark had Odo keep an eye on two Yridians whom Quark suspected were cheating at dabo in his bar. Quark's suspicions turned out to be correct, as the two Yridians were using a miniature gravimetric scanner to predict where the ball would land on the dabo wheel. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")
Later that year, Voyager discovered a passage through Borg space and nicknamed it the "Northwest Passage". It was filled with intense gravimetric distortions, caused by numerous quantum singularities from Species 8472 bio-ships. (VOY: "Scorpion")
In 2375, a class 2 shuttle piloted by Tom Paris was damaged by a proto-nebula while Paris, B'Elanna Torres, The Doctor, and Seven of Nine were investigating it. Gravimetric shear caught the shuttle and damaged its engines. (VOY: "Drone")
In 2376, Ensign Harry Kim detected level 9 gravimetric distortions while he was in command of Voyager during the night shift. It was later revealed that the distortions were caused by a graviton ellipse. (VOY: "One Small Step")
Later that year, Voyager was caught up in a gravimetric gradient while investigating an unusual planet in the Delta Quadrant, which pulled Voyager into its orbit that the ship could not break out of. (VOY: "Blink of an Eye")
