hertz (or Hz) is a unit of frequency, where one hertz was equal to one cycle per second, used to describe ranges of sound and of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Used in applications Edit
Electromagnetic spectrum Edit
Megahertz = 1 million hertz

shield modulation of 257.4 megahertz
Gigahertz = 1 billion hertz
Terahertz = 1 trillion hertz
327 systems that used terahertz feeds were known to the Federation in 2267, none of which were used by Starfleet. ( : " TNG ")
The Mind's Eye The attack by Voyager on Tactical Cube 138 in 2376 created a 0.06 terahertz fluctuation in the cube's ventral shield grid, enough to allow a team aboard the to Delta Flyer beam aboard. ( : " VOY ")
Unimatrix Zero In 2374, during an attempt to beam deuterium from beneath a Class Y planet's surface, Voyager's transporter's annular confinement beam was narrowed to .47 terahertz. ( : " VOY ")
Demon The frequency of the message transmitted by was sent at a rate of V'ger one million megahertz (1 terahertz) and lasted only a millisecond. At that high rate of speed, the message was initially undetected. ( )
Star Trek: The Motion Picture The forged Federation phaser rifles created by the Romulans, discovered on Krios Prime and used by Kriosian rebels, were charged with a forced pulse, well into the terahertz range. This range is similar with those found in Romulan disruptors, which create an inverted initial output spike, with corresponding discharge crystal and emission beam pattern. ( : " TNG ")
The Mind's Eye Geordi La Forge's VISOR operating frequencies were between 1 Hz and 100,000 THz. ( : " TNG ")
The Masterpiece Society A gamma scan conducted by the crew of the Enterprise-D in 2368 had a composite frequency of 2.43 × 10 22 hertz. ( : " TNG ")
