During the [[23rd century]], the crystals often deteriorated rapidly during adverse situations, so starships often kept large supplies of them on board. ({{g|TOS|Starfleet Academy: Strategic Command}})

During a trip back to the [[20th century]] to retrieve two humpback whales, the dilithium crystals of the [[HMS Bounty|Klingon ship]] Kirk and his crew were using began to wear out. Since fission based nuclear reactors was still in use, Captain [[Spock]] determined that it might have been possible to obtain high energy photons from such a reactor, and bombard the crystals with them - thus causing dilithium to recrystallize. After obtaining such photons from the United States aircraft carrier ''Enterprise'', Spock and Engineer [[Montgomery Scott]] were able to successfully recrystallize dilithium.

By the 24th century, the process of recrystallizing dilithium had been refined to the point that it had become routine on board [[Federation]] vessels. Using a theta-matrix compositor, dilithium could be recrystallized inside the warp reaction chamber. ({{e|TNG|Family|Skin of Evil}})
