For the film, please see Generations.
"Here's to the next generation."

A generation was a group of related individuals all belonging to a specific time period. The term could also refer to the time period itself.

Though not stated in the canon, the period of a generation is considered on average to be about thirty years. This is the amount of time for children to grow up into adults and have offspring of their own.

Some technology was also referred to as belonging to a generation; that is, a certain number of designs removed from the original.

Familial generation

In September of the same year, Mary Reed told Captain Jonathan Archer, while they were having an on-screen discussion which Archer took in his ready room, that the Reed family had been "navy men" for generations. (ENT: "Silent Enemy")

Captain Jackson Keene told Jonathan Archer that his family had been on the ECS Fortunate for three generations as of 2151. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

At least six generations of Gary Mitchell's maternal ancestors were said to have dabbled in metaphysics, according to his medical record. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

The entire Horta race, but one, dies off every fifty thousand years, to tend to the previous generation's eggs. (TOS: "The Devil in the Dark")

From 1937 to 2371, the Human descendants of the 37's had lived on the Briori colony for fifteen generations. (VOY: "The 37's")

From the 1990s until 2364, Clare Raymond's progeny had expanded by ten generations. (TNG: "The Neutral Zone")

From 2000 to 2374, Shannon O'Donnel, an ancestor of Kathryn Janeway's, was fifteen generations removed. Seven of Nine did not see the relevance of Janeway's interest in such an ancestor, as she "possess[ed] a small fraction of her genetic material." (VOY: "11:59")

In 2268, Spock estimated that "assuming one tribble, multiplying with an average litter of ten, producing a new generation every twelve hours over a period of three days," the total amount of tribbles on Deep Space Station K-7 now amounted to 1,771,561, also taking into consideration how much quadrotriticale they had eaten and the volume of the storage compartment they were inside. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

Social generation

In April 2151, while debating the qualities of Humanity with T'Pol, Charles Tucker III mentioned that the Human race had "pretty much" eliminated war, disease and hunger in less than two generations, a situation which Tucker expressed he wouldn't describe as small potatoes. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

On the planet Terra Nova, the descendants of the SS Conestoga colonists, the Novans, built an immunity against the radioactive fallout of an asteroid impact in 2083 for generations and took shelter in underground tunnels and caves for the next three generations until 2151, when a landing party from Enterprise NX-01 relocated them to the southern hemisphere. Also embedded in the Novans for two generations was the idea that Humans had destroyed their colony. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

Traditional Vulcan litanies are passed down for generations. (ENT: "The Andorian Incident")

As of the late 2250s, generations of Klingon lives had guarded the time crystals present on Boreth. (DIS: "Through the Valley of Shadows")

When the USS Enterprise was attacked by a thermonuclear warhead that was launched from the planet Ekos in 2268, Leonard McCoy commented that such technology was "generations ahead of where these people should be technically." When he wondered aloud "How'd they manage that?" James T. Kirk thought that "Maybe they had help." Later, Isak, a member of the neighboring Zeon race, described that his people's "warlike period ended dozens of generations ago." (TOS: "Patterns of Force")
