The following is a list of unnamed nebulae.

Alpha and Beta Quadrants Edit

Amleth nebula Edit

This nebula was an emission nebula in the Cardassian Union. It was notable for its size - it encompassed the entire Amleth system.

In 2372, Dukat suggested that K'Temang's next Cardassian target could be Amleth Prime. Major Kira Nerys pointed out that the Amleth nebula would render his Bird-of-Prey's cloaking device useless. (DS9: "Return to Grace")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 46) and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Amleth Nebula was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

Andorian hideout nebula Edit

This nebula was used by Shran and his forces to hide from the Vulcans. (ENT: "Kir'Shara")

Cardassian dark matter nebula Edit

Dark matter nebula planet

A planet within the nebula

This dark matter nebula was located in Cardassian space and contained at least one planet.

In 2374, it was located near a Ketracel-white facility destroyed by Captain Sisko. The ship Captain Sisko used was destroyed when it was attacked by 2 additional Jem'Hadar fighters that caused the already ship to crash on the planet within the nebula. Sisko and his crew, along with the Vorta Keevan eventually were rescued. (DS9: "A Time to Stand", "Rocks and Shoals")

Cardassian nebula Edit

Defiant hiding in nebula

The Defiant in the nebula.

In 2371, Tom Riker took the USS Defiant into a nebula to hide the ship from Cardassian starships after Kira Nerys sabotaged the cloaking device. (DS9: "Defiant")

Enterprise-E nebula Edit

USS Enterprise-E in nebula

The Enterprise within the nebula

This nebula located in Federation space was traversed by the USS Enterprise-E in 2373, shortly before it was assigned to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone after the Borg sent a cube to Earth. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Kovaalan nebula Edit

Subspace corridor

Enterprise enters the subpace corridor

This nebula, located in the Delphic Expanse, contained a the terminus of a subspace corridor and was controlled by the Kovaalans. In 2154, Enterprise attempted to access the subspace corridor within the nebula to rendezvous with Degra, but was forced to fight with the Kovaalan ships in the nebula. While Enterprise managed to escape, the damage inflicted on its impulse manifold caused it to emerge in 2037 when it came out of the other terminus of the corridor. Enterprise remained in the expanse for the following 117 years, until it encountered the past version of itself. This Enterprise helped its past counterpart reach the corridor without traveling to the early-21st century. Instead it rendezvous with Degra's ship early, thus negating the alternate version of the past in which it time traveled. (ENT: "")

Milky way nebula Edit

Milky way galaxy nebula

A nebula in the Milky Way Galaxy

This nebula is located in the Milky Way Galaxy.

In 2374, while introducing Astrometrics aboard the USS Voyager, the monitor displayed this nebula. (VOY: "Year of Hell")

Suliban nebula Edit

This deep red nebula was located near Paraagan II and contained a Suliban helix. In 2152, the Suliban Cabal captured Enterprise and took it to this nebula after the Cabal destroyed mining colony on Paraagan II. After Enterprise faked a warp core breach, the Suliban towed the ship out of the nebula and it escaped. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II")

Gamma Quadrant Edit

Hideout Edit

Jem'Hadar fleet encountered in nebula

A nebula hideout

This unnamed nebula in the Gamma Quadrant was used by a Dominion fleet, including several Jem'Hadar battle cruisers and Jem'Hadar fighters as a hideout prior to their invasion of the Alpha Quadrant. They were discovered by Worf and Elim Garak. (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow")

Delta Quadrant Edit

Voyager starting nebula Edit

This nebula, was located 75,000 light years away from Earth and was in the Delta Quadrant. When Voyager began its journey back to Earth in 2371, it flew through this nebula when it went to maximum warp. (VOY: "Caretaker")

Class 17 nebula Edit

Class 17 Nebula

A class 17 nebula

This class 17 nebula, initially described as a gaseous anomaly, was encountered by USS Voyager in early 2373.

Apart from the typical amounts of hydrogen and helium, this nebula also had an unusually large amount of sirillium, 7,000 parts per million.

To the naked eye, it was very similar in appearance to the class 11 Azure Nebula near Klingon space, though technically it was very different. (VOY: "Flashback")

Emission nebula Edit

In 2372, USS Voyager avoided traveling through this emission nebula, even though Tom Paris believed it would save time. (VOY: "Lifesigns")

Komar dark matter nebula Edit

Dark matter nebula

The nebula

This nebula, containing several planetoids, was first encountered when Chakotay and Tuvok returned from a trade mission in 2371. The non-corporeal Komar considered it their domain. (VOY: "Cathexis")

Nebula near Hanon IV Edit

Basics nebula

The nebula

This nebula was the site of a battle in 2372 between USS Voyager, taken over by the Kazon-Nistrim, and Talaxian ships originating from the colony at Prema II. The Talaxian forces used the nebula to their tactical advantage, retreating into it after their attack. Voyager with its crew back later went to maximum warp while in this nebula in 2373, thus moving beyond the Kazon Collective. (VOY: "Basics, Part II")

Kes' gift nebula Edit

Nebula, ten years closer to earth

A nebula

This nebula was located 9,500 light-years from Borg space. The Voyager reached this nebula in 2374 when Kes moved it ten years closer to Earth. (VOY: "The Gift")

Class 9 nebula Edit

See: Class 9 nebula

Radiation nebula Edit

This nebula was toxic to most humanoids, was 110 light-years across, and 60,000 light-years from earth. It would take an Intrepid class starship 1 month to travel through it and 1 year to travel around it at maximum warp. In 2374, Voyager put its crew in Stasis and went through the nebula in a month-long journey. (VOY: "One")

Delta Quadrant class 1 nebula Edit

Class 1 Nebula

The class 1 nebula in the Delta Quadrant

This Class 1 nebula was located in the Delta Quadrant. It contained protomatter. In 2374, USS Voyager sent a shuttlecraft to collect a sample, but Neelix died in the attempt. While he was brought back to life due to Seven of Nine's nanoprobes, he suffered psychological trouble. He later attempted to transport to the location inside the nebula where he died, but was stopped by the bridge crew. (VOY: "Mortal Coil")

Class 3 nebula Edit

Class 3 Nebula

A class 3 nebula in the Delta Quadrant

This nebula was class 3 and was located in the Delta Quadrant was held intact by a subspace vacuole near its center, acting as a gravitational anchor. In 2375, Derran Tal and Ensign Kim secretly visited this nebula using one of the USS Voyager's shuttlecraft. (VOY: "The Disease")

Vaadwaur nebula Edit

This nebula was located near the junction of Underspace corridors 39 and 875. It contained a planet that Gedrin proposed to be the new homeworld of his species in 2376. (VOY: "Dragon's Teeth")

Class K nebula Edit

This class K nebula was located in the Delta Quadrant. In 2376, USS Voyager went 25 light-years off course to starboard to explore this nebula at the request of Commander Chakotay. However, they were diverted from it when they made contact with Tash. (VOY: "The Voyager Conspiracy")

ECH hiding nebula Edit

Nebula workforce

Voyager hiding in a nebula in 2377

This nebula was used by the ECH to hide Voyager in 2377. (VOY: "Workforce")

Transwarp hub nebula Edit

This nebula located in grid 986 of the Delta Quadrant contained a transwarp hub in 2378. In that year, with the assistance of Admiral Janeway from an alternate future, Voyager destroyed the hub and returned to Earth. (VOY: "Endgame")
