General quarters was a command that dated back to early naval tradition to prepare for battle.

By the 23rd century, the term had been adopted by Starfleet for use aboard Federation starships as a stage of red alert to describe a ship's condition of maximum readiness. The general quarters order was typically issued as a call for all hands to man their battle stations, but could also vary in state by a number of conditions. By the late-24th century, usage of this alert was phased out in favor of more specific alerts for various situations, such as yellow alert, red alert, security alert, and intruder alert.

Conditions of general quarters Edit

  • Security Condition Four ordered all halls to be sealed off and all weapons to be accounted for and locked away on all levels of the ship. (TOS: "The Man Trap")
