Elim Garak was shown to have claustrophobia when he was working in the narrow crawlspace on Dominion Internment Camp 371. In 2375, the condition returned with a vengeance when Garak suffered several claustrophobic attacks due to his underlying guilt in betraying his people by helping Starfleet defeat the Dominion, which required the assistance of station counselor, Ezri Dax, to bring the condition under control. He also considered the quarters aboard the USS Defiant to be "rather claustrophobic". (DS9: "Second Skin", "By Inferno's Light", "Afterimage")
Starfleet Academy cadets, as well as any occupant of a class 2 shuttlecraft were known to experience "a case of class-2 claustrophobia". At the academy, half a dozen cadets were often "shoehorned" in a class-2 shuttlecraft for weeks at a time, creating extreme cases of claustrophobia among its occupants. (VOY: "Drone")
Marla Gilmore, a crewmember aboard the USS Equinox, developed claustrophobia after repeated attacks from nucleogenic lifeforms in the 2370s, which were most often fatal if their target was trapped in a confined space. (VOY: "Equinox")
