Vulcan spine

The Vulcan spine

Klingon spinal cord

A Klingon spine

A spine or backbone was the column of a vertebrate skeletal system and housed the spinal cord.

Some Klingon infants had a curvature of the spine, which could be corrected by surgery. This "defect" tended to run in Klingon families, especially among females. Federation medicine had advanced beyond that, allowing an additional choice of treatment which involved genetic modification. (VOY: "Lineage")

One of the symptoms of the Urodelan flu was a stinging sensation in the lower spine. (TNG: "Genesis")

Some species had more than one spinal column. The Yallitians from the Delta Quadrant had three spinal columns, (VOY: "Phage") and the Talaxians, also from the Delta Quadrant, had two spinal columns. (VOY: "Scientific Method")
