"Space boomer" or simply "boomer" was Earth slang for a person who had spent their entire life on spaceships running cargo. Crews of Earth Cargo Service vessels such as the ECS Fortunate and the ECS Horizon were considered boomers. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

Prior to the launch of Enterprise NX-01, the Humans with the most space experience were boomers, so it was only appropriate that a boomer, Travis Mayweather, be a bridge officer on that ship's historic mission. (ENT: "Broken Bow") Mayweather always suspected that boomers were more affected than anyone else by lost colonies. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

Brannon Braga once characterized the concept of boomers as "an interesting idea" but remarked, "It was badly executed." ("To Boldly Go: Launching Enterprise, Part III: First Flight", ENT Season 1 Blu-ray special features)
