Kirk's shoulder and back with evidence of being flogged


Flogging was the practice of beating someone with a whip as punishment or means of interrogation.

In 2152, Malcolm Reed sincerely apologized for his "inexcusable" act of leaving his communicator behind on a pre-warp planet and invited whatever punishment Captain Jonathan Archer deemed sufficient. Archer sarcastically suggested thirty years in the brig or a good flogging before assuring Reed that his actions "could have happened to any of us. (ENT: "The Communicator")

In 2155, Maximilian Forrest preferred "a good, old-fashioned flogging" to the agony booth. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

In 2268, James T. Kirk and Spock were flogged by an Ekosian guard with a cat o' nine tails on the SS Major's orders, in an attempt to persuade a confession from them of their orders. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

In 2374, after a stressed Kathryn Janeway berated Tuvok for letting the crew of USS Voyager become lax on ship's protocol, she suggested that he straighten out the department heads. He asked her if she would like him to flog them as well. (VOY: "Scientific Method")
