Term for an Invisibility screen used by Spaceships, popularized by Star Trek. It first appears as a Romulan Invention in the original-series episode "Balance of Terror" (1966), and continues to be used by Romulans and later Klingons (though not, for treaty reasons, the USS Enterprise itself) in later Star Trek incarnations.
