A straight man was one half of a comedy team, whose job it was to set up the funny man's jokes.

In 2369, after making a joke that Tosk did not understand and thus commented on as though it was intended to be serious, Miles O'Brien described him as "the most natural straight man I've met in ages". (DS9: "Captive Pursuit")
