Odo and infant changeling in The Begotten

Odo about to transfer a infant Changeling from a glass cube to a glass pyramid

A pyramid is a three-sided geometric shape whose outer surface is comprised of three triangles, converged at a single peak, with a triangular base.

According to Odo, a pyramid was "one of the most mysterious shapes in nature," while demonstrating a pyramid-shaped glass container to a sick infant Changeling. Later, Odo transferred the Changeling back and forth from the pyramid-shaped to cube-shaped glass containers, and at one point said, "Now Mister Pyramid, here comes Mister Cube." (DS9: "The Begotten")

The dice used by the Wadi for their game chula were pyramidic. (DS9: "Move Along Home")

Pyramids, time stream

The Pyramids seen in the resetting time stream

On Earth, Pyramid shaped structures were built by numerous Human cultures, including Egyptians, Mayans, and Aztec. Pyramids were part of the city designed by Kukulkan. All of the ancient Human cultures influenced by Kukulkan built some type of pyramid, although none of them did it in the perfect way that he had planned. (TAS: "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth")

Jean-Luc Picard would later describe them as "a symbol of colossal vanity". (PIC: "Remebrance")

One pyramid of note was the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt. After Archer restored a damaged timeline, it and neighbouring Pyramids could be seen in the timestream as the timeline realigned itself. (ENT: "Cold Front", "Storm Front, Part II"; TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

Another prominent pyramid-shaped structure on Earth was the Transamerica Pyramid. (VOY: "Non Sequitur", et al.)

Although never mentioned in any of the series or movies, it was clearly shown as part of the San Francisco skyline in several episodes.

Pyramid-shaped structures were also found on Ventax II, and in the city of Urquat on the Loque'eque homeworld. (TNG: "Devil's Due"; ENT: "Extinction")

A painting of landscape with pyramid

There was at some point a painting of a landscape with a steep pyramid in the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) officers' lounge. (TOS: "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"

In The Star Trek Saga: From One Generation To The Next, Gene Roddenberry ruled out any possible storylines regarding alien influence in the construction of Earth's pyramids. He stated, "No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids. Human beings built them, because they're clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things."
