We introduce the notions of Lyapunov quasi-stability and Zhukovskiĭ quasi-stability of a trajectory in an impulsive semidynamical system defined in a metric space, which are counterparts of corresponding stabilities in the theory of dynamical systems. We initiate the study of fundamental properties of those quasi-stable trajectories, in particular, the structures of their positive limit sets. In fact, we prove that if a trajectory is asymptotically Lyapunov quasi-stable, then its limit set consists of rest points, and if a trajectory in a locally compact space is uniformly asymptotically Zhukovskiĭ quasi-stable, then its limit set is a rest point or a periodic orbit. Also, we present examples to show the differences between variant quasi-stabilities. Further, some sufficient conditions are given to guarantee the quasi-stabilities of a prescribed trajectory.
