Orbit is a term used to describe the flight path of an object in space which has a repetitive motion and has a distinct center with respect to its flightpath.

A starship used a form of orbit to maintain its relative position. The term orbit is also used to define the flight path of a planet within its own star system. (TNG: "Force of Nature")

Types of orbitsEdit

  • High orbit is an orbit such that the orbiting object flies on a path that lies at an high "altitude" relative to the surface of another body.
  • Likewise, low orbit is an orbit with a low relative altitude relative to the surface of said body.
