[[Image:Tachyon net fed.jpg|thumb|right|]]A '''tachyon net''' is a system developed by the [[Federation]] to detect [[cloaking device|cloaked]] [[starship]]s attempting to move undetected through a specific area of space. The net requires a fleet of starships, space stations, satellites, or other platforms to transmit beams of tachyons to each other. If the beams are close enough together, a cloaked ship attempting to pass through the net will interrupt one of them, alerting the fleet that something is attempting to slip through the net.
