Human sacrifice was the practice of killing a person as an offering to be placed on an altar, usually to appease deities.

In 2267, when "Lord" Garth of Izar wondered if the unenthusiastic "heir apparent" James T. Kirk might want a larger role in his coronation ceremony, he suggested Human sacrifice instead. After Kirk graciously declined ("No, I wouldn't enjoy that at all."), saying Garth needed him alive, the insane man agreed, saying he had other candidates. (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy")
