The Dog, demonstrating her superpowers

A superpower, hidden power, special power, strange power, or simply power, was any ability possessed by an individual that was considered supernatural to other humanoids, such as psychokinesis, telepathy, or superhuman strength. Some people with superpowers were called superheroes and supervillains.

In 2024, a little girl assumed that Seven of Nine had the power of teleportation, since she had observed her appear out of thin air. She even asked her if she was a superhero, to which Seven answered: "Will you keep my secret?" (PIC: "Assimilation")

While growing up, Harry Kim didn't see what his parents found to be special about him, so he used to imagine that he had hidden powers, and thought he would grow up to be stronger than a Klingon, or was able to read people's minds– anything to make him more than just an average kid. (VOY: "Favorite Son")

In 2365, Q requested to join the crew of the USS Enterprise-D and offered to renounce his powers if necessary, and become, as Q put it, as weak and as incompetent as all of the crew. (TNG: "Q Who")

In 2380, Ensign D'Vana Tendi used inert carbon to create a dog that she simply called "The Dog". This animal had superpowers, such as shapeshifting, flight, super-intelligence, and the ability to communicate verbally. (LD: "Much Ado About Boimler")

In 2381, Commander Jack Ransom was exposed to strange energy, and gained god-like superpowers similar to those of Gary Mitchell. Ransom's abilities allowed him to transform himself into a giant, hover in the air, project energy, rearrange matter, fly into space, and remove his own head. (LD: "Strange Energies")

While attempting to rescue the away team on Frylon IV, Ensign Sam Rutherford told Ensign Brad Boimler that he wished that they had special powers. Brad told him they may not have any superhuman powers, but they do have brains. Despite not having any special powers, Ensign Beckett Mariner later told Honus at the USS Cerritos' bar a rumor that they were known as the "Mugato Twins" because they killed ten mugatos, ground up their horns, and snorted them, which gave them strange powers. (LD: "Mugato, Gumato")

In 2399, shortly after murdering Doctor Bruce Maddox, Dr. Agnes Jurati, jokingly told Cristóbal Rios that she had a superpower that allowed her to sense the bad mistakes she made, while she was making them. He told her that didn't seem like much of a superpower, and she agreed that it was a completely worthless ability. (PIC: "The Impossible Box")

When Jean-Luc Picard had his mind transferred into a golem, Dr. Jurati told him that it wouldn't give him any superpowers. (PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2")
