A spear was a weapon consisting of a long shaft with one end sharpened, either by sharpening the shaft or by attaching another element to the shaft. Some types of spears were used primarily as hand-held weapons, while others were designed to be thrown at an opponent from a distance.
Data, going under the name of Jayden while on the planet Barkon IV, was "killed" by a spear in 2370. The local inhabitants believed he was responsible for bringing a plague to their village. (TNG: "Thine Own Self")
When the Kazon-Nistrim captured the USS Voyager and marooned the crew on Hanon IV without any of their technology (or, for that matter, any food or supplies), some of the crew members, including Chakotay and Harry Kim, created and used spears. While rescuing Kes from a group of Hanon IV natives, some members of Chakotay's search team threw their spears at the natives. After later fleeing into a cave, the group held at bay a Hanonian land eel by throwing spears, and Tuvok shooting arrows, at the creature, but only briefly; upon exiting from the cave, Tuvok, Chakotay and Kim collapsed the entrance by prying loose rocks from the roof of the cave, using their spears for reach and leverage.
