An ape was a type of sapient lifeform found on several planets throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

During a fight between Jonathan Archer and Silik, where Archer commented on Silik's "genetic tricks", Silik retorted that "what you call tricks we call progress," commenting on how Archer's "genome is almost identical to that of an ape," and that "the Suliban don't share Humanity's patience with natural selection." (ENT: "Broken Bow")

The Mugato of the planet Neural was described as an ape-like carnivore. (TOS: "A Private Little War")

Lokai had once heard that on some people from Federation planets believed that they were descended from apes. Spock clarified to him that "the actual theory is that all lifeforms evolved from the lower levels to the more advanced stages." (TOS: "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield")
