A wormhole is a conduit that exists outside normal spacetime and connects two distant points together. The conduit is shorter than the distance between the two points allowing for rapid transit between the two points.

Initiating warp drive too close to a gravity well when the engines were not properly balanced resulted in a ship's drive creating a wormhole. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

The discovery of the Bajoran wormhole in 2369 was the first stable wormhole discovered by the United Federation of Planets. (DS9: "Emissary")

By the 2420s, a new type of transporter technology had been developed, called the subspace-aperture transporter. The technology harnessed wormholes for transporting personnel and, presumably, cargo. (Star Trek: Phoenix: "Cloak and Dagger")
