A flux capacitor was a piece of technology used aboard Starfleet starships and facilities.

In 2155, a flux capacitor was installed in the freighter Kobayashi Maru by members of the Vulcan V'Shar in order to give the freighter needed extra speed. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru)

Flux capacitors were used aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG episode: "Hollow Pursuits")

In late 2375, Miles O'Brien joked to Julian Bashir that the reason he was going to teach at Starfleet Academy was to teach officers the difference between warp matrix flux capacitors and self-sealing stem bolts. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

The following year, Thirishar ch'Thane overestimated twice the number of flux capacitors he and Nog would need for the new wormhole relay station the USS Defiant deployed. (DS9 novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)

The Flux capacitor was the key component for time travel and thus the major enabler for the DeLorean time machine and Jules Verne Train.

History

Invented by Dr. Emmett Brown by accident in 1955, the flux capacitor was first utilized in the year 1985 for the first temporal displacement. It initially required plutonium and a miniaturized nuclear reactor while the vehicle it was attached to attained 88 miles per hour in order to generate the 1.21 gigowatts required for time travel.(Back to the Future)

When Emmett Brown visited the year 2015 the plutonium was no longer required and the flux capacitor now utilized the energy extracted by the removal of hydrogen atoms from garbage via the Mr. Fusion Reactor. (Back to the Future, Part II)

When Doctor Brown encountered the stranded USS Voyager away team he requested their help in rescuing Marty McFly and recovering the flux capacitor which Marty had hidden to prevent the technology from falling into the hands of Biff Tannen and Armus. (Star Trek: Voyager - Dark Realm)
