A familial connection is a relationship between people by genetics, marriage, adoption, or an especially strong friendship. In 2376, Seven of Nine and Naomi Wildman said they considered each other family because they were very close friends. (VOY: "Survival Instinct") The study of this relationship is known as genealogy. (VOY: "11:59")

Familial connections vary by species, culture, gender, sexual identity and preference. Denobulans commonly have several spouses, each of which have more spouses, and children by each. Bolian families may likewise be polygamous. (DS9: "Field of Fire")

In 2374, Seven of Nine said the need for familial connections was a weakness. (VOY: "Hope and Fear")
