Metaphasic shielding is a type of shield that makes it possible for a starship to survive within the corona of a star. The technology was invented by a Ferengi scientist in 2369. The first fully successful use of this technology was by Beverley Crusher who flew the shuttlecraft Justman into the corona of the star, Veytan. (TNG: "Suspicion")

The technology was further developed by Geordi La Forge who installed the shielding on the USS Enterprise-D in 2370. The Enterprise was then able to enter the corona of a star and lure a Borg vessel to its destruction. (TNG: "Descent, Part II")
