A familial connection was 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 family relationships was known as genealogy. (VOY: "11:59")

Familial connections varied by species, culture, gender, sexual identity and preference. Denobulans commonly had several spouses, each of which had 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")

Genetics-based connections Edit

Parents Edit

See Parenting for main article.

A male who has parented a child is referred to as a father. Alexander often called Worf "Father" (TNG: "Reunion", et al.) whereas Jake Sisko referred to his father Commander Benjamin Sisko by the more informal "Dad." (DS9: "Emissary", "Move Along Home", et al.) During his lifetime, Captain Kathryn Janeway referred to her father Vice Admiral Janeway as "Daddy." (VOY: "Coda")

When Jake Sisko told Varis Sul about his father, Nog tried to compare his father, Rom, to Jake's. Both were more silent when Varis Sul told them that her parents were killed by the Cardassians. (DS9: "The Storyteller")

Grandparents Edit

The term "foremother" was used in place by Vulcans for grandmother. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")

Grandfather Edit

A grandfather is a title used to describe the father of one's own parents. A great-grandfather refers to the father on one's own grandfather.

Ira Graves claimed to have been a mentor to Doctor Noonian Soong, suggesting that made him "grandfather" to Soong's android creation, Data. (TNG: "The Schizoid Man")

Deanna Troi's grandfather was someone she spent time with on Betazed while growing up. She later described him as a man who rarely spoke, noting that talking was for off-worlders and people who didn't know any better. When Troi was young, her grandfather would tell her stories to her telepathically as they sat by the fire. Troi would close her eyes and listen to his mind for hours on end. When Troi got older, the only time she could remember his stories was when she went home to Betazed and sat by the fireplace, adding that at times, when she was alone there, it was almost like she could hear his voice inside her head. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder")

Riley Frazier had fond memories, while growing up in mid-24th century Texas, of picking bluebonnets with her grandfather, who carried a walking stick. (VOY: "Unity")
