This device consists of a large framework on which are mounted eight graviton projectors powered by a tetrion reactor. A ship would station itself close to the catapult and allow itself to be encased in graviton surge, which would then catapult it into null space. In Theory the ship should emerge a few hours later hundreds or even thousands of light years away.

There is only one other known species which uses tetrion technology, the Ocampan's Caretaker which kidnapped Voyager. The rarity of the technology indicates that it is unlikely that the Federation will be able to construct another catapult in the near future, if at all.
