A cadaver (also called a carcass, a corpse, a stiff or the remains) was the deceased body of an individual. The term "carcass" could also refer to one's live body.
In 2267, while trying to bait a Omicron spore-infected Spock, James T. Kirk called him "A carcass full of memory banks who should be squatting in a mushroom." (TOS: "This Side of Paradise")
In 2364, after Whalen had been shot, Cyrus Redblock ordered, "Get that stiff out of here." When Doctor Beverly Crusher informed him that the historian was not dead,
Redblock guessed that based on the man's pallor, he likely would die soon. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")
After a beheading (theoretically), one's last sight before death could be one's headless corpse, at least according to a Bolian orderly stationed on Ajilon Prime in 2373. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")
After Seven of Nine referred to Neelix as a cadaver in 2374, The Doctor remarked, "And they say I have a lousy bedside manner." (VOY: "Mortal Coil")
