A smile was a facial expression that involved the turning up of one's lips, sometimes showing teeth. It could be a sign of happiness, stupidity, or intoxication.

In 2267, Kor noticed that Baroner (James T. Kirk) didn't share "the stupid, idiotic smile everyone else seems to be wearing". (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")

In 2268, while pretending to be members of the Führer's Special Documentary Corps, Kirk and Daras told various Ekosians to smile for the camera. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

In some instances, smiling was considered inappropriate. Following the announcement that President Abraham Lincoln was coming aboard the USS Enterprise, Captain Kirk threatened to "have the hide of the first man that so much as smiles" (at the absurdity of the situation). (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")
