Body temperature was the thermal reading of an individual's body. It could be measured in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. The body function panel in USS Enterprise's sickbay included a temperature reading indicator with both of these measurement scales. (Star Trek: The Original Series)

Normal body temperature was one of the markers that confirmed an individual's species. In 2267, Lazarus's body temperature registered at 98.5 degrees Fahrenheit. (TOS: "The Alternative Factor") In 2268, Arne Darvin's body temperature helped to convince Doctor McCoy that he was in fact a Klingon. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

A sudden change in one's body temperature could be an indicator of illness or impending death. In 2268, Hodin told Odona that a sudden increase in body temperature would precede her death. (TOS: "The Mark of Gideon") In 2367, Susanna Leijten's body temperature dropped as she changed form. (TNG: "Identity Crisis")
