For the Pocket TNG novel, please see Balance of Power.

The balance of power was when two or more factions or nations were of equal power.

In 1968, in response to a nuclear warhead being placed in sub-orbit by another major power, the United States launched a suborbital platform with multi-warhead capacity for the purpose of maintaining the balance of power. Gary Seven noted that this was the same kind of nonsense that almost destroyed the planet Omicron IV. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")
