A ballad was a story told in the form of a song.
In 2374, Julian Bashir was glad to leave the IKS Rotarran after having endured many sleepless nights caused by Klingons singing. He remarked to Miles O'Brien, "If I have to listen to another ballad about the honored dead, I'll go stark raving mad." (DS9: "Sons and Daughters")
In 2376, The Doctor described Rondine al nido as " an old Neapolitan ballad. It's a song about lost love." (VOY: "Virtuoso")
