A generational projection was a simulation that extrapolated the future growth of a population.

In 2376, The Doctor ran generational projections on his computer in sickbay. Tom Paris mistook it for real data rather than simulated, causing a rumor to spread across USS Voyager that half of the crew members on deck five had gotten pregnant. Neelix, upon hearing the rumors, asked Chakotay if he could turn Cargo bay 1 into a nursery.

After Chakotay explained the provenance of the rumor at Kathryn Janeway's request, she commented that "word travels fast on this ship." "Warp 10," Chakotay then agreed. (VOY: "The Voyager Conspiracy")
