A gigaquad is a measurement of information in Federation

computers. Gigaquad measurements are used for amounts of

information exceeding one billion quads. While Federation computers

still use binary code in some capacity, they also are known to use

trinary code. This is much more advanced than ancient computers

which used bits (limited to a "one" or "zero" state) and bytes as

small information measurements, so it is impossible to compare the

bytes with quads.
