Shields were also used in defense when Kirk, Spock, and McCoy were forced to fight for a public spectacle around stardate 4041.2. (TOS: "Bread and Circuses")

The Bandi Groppler Zorn had three shields hanging as wall decorations in his office in Old Bandi City on Deneb IV in 2364. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")
