"Someone once told me that 'time' is a predator that stalks us all our lives. But I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because it will never come again."

- Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek Generations)

Time is a nonspatial continuum in which events occur in a seemingly irreversible transition of the current state to the next as governed by the laws of the local universe. These sequential events form a time stream also known as a timeline. More timelines can be formed, and time travel can result in splits in the timeline.

Our universe also contained several parallel time continuums occupying the same space but in a different time. (TNG: "Time's Arrow") The quantum singularity lifeforms were among the species that originate from a different time continuum, (TNG: "Timescape") as were the Devidians, who lived in a time continuum, only a fraction of a second away, with a positive phase variance of 0.004 percent from the normal timeline. (TNG: "Time's Arrow", "Time's Arrow, Part II")

The reverse universe was a parallel universe where the flow of time was reversed. Operational controls for example worked in reverse. Reverse beginning a process ended it and reverse ending it began it. The inhabitants of the reverse universe counterpart of Earth, the planet Arret, began their life at an old age in a reverse death and slowly grew younger and died in reverse birth. For this reason, a person would call her mother or father the individual she would eventually give reverse birth to. (TAS: "The Counter-Clock Incident")
