The Shedai carrier wave was a low frequency artificial signal that emanated from a Conduit on one of Jinoteur IV's moons within the Taurus Reach.

In 2265, it affected sensitive equipment in its path such as computer interfaces, sensor arrays and communication networks aboard Starfleet Starbase 47-Vanguard, the USS Lovell and the Orion merchant ship Omari-Ekon. (SCE eBook: Distant Early Warning, VAN novel: Summon the Thunder)
