Titan's Turn was a dangerous shuttlecraft maneuver sometimes performed by Starfleet pilots on the Jovian Run. Upon entering the Saturnian system, the pilot would accelerate almost directly towards Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, and then grazing the moon's atmosphere before turning sharply around the limb of the moon at 0.7 c. Geordi La Forge and Edward Jellico were both experienced at performing Titan's Turn during their stints as pilots on the Jovian Run. La Forge also believed that William Riker was so skilled a pilot that he could perform the maneuver in his sleep. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part II")
