Chakotay spear

Chakotay holding a spear in his dream sequence.

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.

Kalars used spears as one of their primary weapons in combat. (TOS: "The Cage")

The Taurus II anthropoids used spears with heads reminiscent of Folsom points. (TOS: "The Galileo Seven")

James T. Kirk told Nona that his species was once like hers. Using spears and arrows before their weapons were developed faster than their wisdom. (TOS: "A Private Little War")

While forced to fight on Triskelion, Kirk dodged a spear thrown by an Andorian. This spear instead hit and killed the thrall Lars. (TOS: "The Gamesters of Triskelion")

When the Excalbians staged a fight between good and evil, one of the weapons created by both sides were spears. A spear was used to kill Abraham Lincoln. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")

On the Shore Leave Planet, Doctor Leonard McCoy was confronted by the Queen of Hearts and her army of spear throwing cards. (TAS: "Once Upon a Planet")

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")

While on a holodeck mission, Freya jumped in front of a spear thrown at The Doctor saving his life in the process. (VOY: "Heroes and Demons")

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. (VOY: "Basics, Part II")

When Chakotay first entered a dream state in an effort to contact the Dream species he realized he was on a hunt and holding a spear. (VOY: "Waking Moments")
