A temporal causality loop (or temporal loop) is an event where time skips back to a previous point and repeats itself causing a loop of a specific time period.

The USS Enterprise-D and the USS Bozeman were caught in a causalty loop in the Typhon Expanse that was reset by the destruction of both vessels from colliding with each other near a temporal anomaly. The loop was broken when the crew of the Enterprise managed to avoid the catastrophic collision. (TNG: "Cause and Effect")

In mid-2374, the USS Swiftfire-A was caught in a causality loop where time was reset to several hours previous (morning, ship time) by the destruction of the ship. The loop was finally broken when the Swiftfire changed the events so that the vessel would not be destroyed. During the experience only Captain Jonathan Masters was aware of the loops through time. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Q, Time and Again")
