The Human rib cage

This article is about the bones called ribs. For other meanings, see rib (disambiguation).

In anatomy, ribs were a bone formation that protected the vital organs in the thorax of most humanoid species. Costal strut was the Malcorian term for this formation. (TNG: "First Contact")

In Humans, they ran horizontally and met at the breastbone. Klingons were known to have twenty-three ribs, while Cardassians had at least seven ribs. (TNG: "Ethics"; DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

At least one possibly apocryphal image depicts Klingon ribs in a roughly hexagonal honeycomb arrangement.

Grathon Tolar stabbed Quark in 2374, but the Ferengi's ribs deflected the knife from any major organs. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")
