- For other uses, see Wells.
Wells was a material option, an Alpha Quadrant Alliance designation for the visual appearance of a spacecraft's outer hull, i.e. a vessel's "skin". Wells was available for 29th century Federation Starfleet starships and shuttlecraft. Unusually for Federation ships, it put the ship into a iridescent, blueish cover.

Through Tholian temporal incursions and Lobi Crystal Consortium business acumen, 29th century timeships were acquired by the AQA. When a commanding officer from the AQA owned timeships of different classes, the Wells material could be used on other ships of the same faction, like the Verne-class.
