A rhetorical question was a type of question intended to make a point rather then be answered.

In 2270, James T. Kirk asked Spock, "How come we always end up like this?" (held captive, in this case by the Delta Theta III aborigines). Spock replied with his assumption that Kirk's question was rhetorical. (TAS: "Bem")

In 2374, The Doctor commented that his statement "I wonder what kind of bedside manner Mister Paris will exhibit" was a rhetorical question. (VOY: "Revulsion")

The Treaty of Armens also included a rhetorical question. (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command")
