The landing gear was a component of some starships which were capable of entering a planet's atmosphere and landing on the surface.
A Klingon Bird-of-Prey could be equipped with landing gear. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
The landing gear served to steady and support the starship upon landing. It is possible for a starship's landing gear to become stuck on a planet's surface. (VOY: "Demon")
One notable class of starship which possessed landing gear was the Intrepid-class, such as the USS Voyager. Voyager used its landing gear, which were called landing struts, on several occasions during its journey through the Delta Quadrant. (VOY: "The 37's", "Dragon's Teeth")
