In 2258 of an alternate reality, Spock wished his younger counterpart "good luck" instead of his customary farewell, which he considered to be in this case "oddly self-serving". (Star Trek)

Before Spock embarked on a scientific mission into the space amoeba in 2268, Leonard McCoy expressed his lack of understanding of Vulcan dignity, so Spock asked him to employ a human superstition and wish him luck. (TOS: "The Immunity Syndrome")

William Riker once remarked that "Luck...protects fools, small children and ships named Enterprise." (TNG: "Contagion")

Data had Vanessa blow on his dice for good luck. (TNG: "The Royale")

Julian Bashir and Miles O'Brien wished Odo "good luck" before the constable departed to deal with Changeling infiltration on Earth. Odo appreciated the sentiment, though he said that he did not personally believe in luck. (DS9: "Homefront")

Senator Letant stated that Romulans did not believe in luck, and Garak stated that Cardassians don't either. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets", "Distant Voices")

Michael Eddington owned an heirloom coin that he called his "lucky looney". (DS9: "Blaze of Glory")

When Seven of Nine discussed a precaution against Theta radiation with Tuvok, he stated that "With any luck, we won't be needing it." Seven replied that she thought that Vulcans didn't believe in luck, but Tuvok replied that serving with Kathryn Janeway had taught him otherwise. Seven agreed that she did seem to succeed more often than random chance would allow for, and stated that she would factor it into her calculations. (VOY: "Juggernaut")
