Tucker sweating

Trip Tucker sweating

Sweat, or perspiration was a liquid secretion produced by an individual's body for the purpose of expelling toxins and cooling one's body temperature.

While forced to stay at the catwalk in 2152, Commander Tucker and Travis Mayweather started to sweat due to the increasing temperature in the command area. (ENT: "The Catwalk")

Sweat was a byproduct of vigorous exercise or exertion. In 2266, Doctor Leonard McCoy encouraged a reclining James T. Kirk to keep pedaling until he worked up a little sweat, saying it would do him good. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

Concerned that Worf was taking an upcoming game of Parrises squares too seriously, Riker told him it was just a game, saying "You work up a sweat, you have a few laughs, and you make new friends." (TNG: "11001001")

An upset Jadzia Dax suggested that a cold-footed Worf go back to sweating and bleeding in the holosuite with his friends and when he was finished, Benjamin Sisko could perform their wedding ceremony in his office. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")

Odo's assessment of Kurn's prowess as a Klingon warrior was that he could have disarmed a Boslic captain without breaking a sweat. (DS9: "Sons of Mogh") Julian Bashir played a Vulcan in the racquetball finals at Starfleet Medical Academy in his senior year. He remarked on the Vulcan's stamina, saying he didn't think the man had even broken a sweat. (DS9: "Rivals")

Sweat could also be produced due to prolonged exposure to heat from an external source. In 2373, Pascal Fullerton described himself as "a middle-aged ponderous academic, sweating under the hot Risian suns" (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")

Sweat could be a response to strong emotion.Trip Tucker woke up sweating after a nightmare about the death of his sister. (ENT: "The Xindi")

In 2259 of the alternate reality, James T. Kirk became sweaty after melding with Spock. (Star Trek)

When fighting with an ill Joe Tormolen, Kevin Riley accused him of getting in a sweat (all worked up). (TOS: "The Naked Time")

The manic evil half of Kirk sweat profusely while roaming the halls of the USS Enterprise (TOS: "The Enemy Within")

Sweating as a medical symptom Edit

Sweating could also be a symptom of illness. Sudden, profuse sweating, also known as "flop sweat", was a side effect of the Melvaran mud flea vaccine. (Star Trek)

While under the influence of polywater intoxication, Hikaru Sulu remarked that he was "sweating like a bridegroom," though he wasn't sure whether it was caused by Psi 2000 or Tormolen's death. Riley also remarked that he was sweating, too. Later, McCoy discovered that perspiration was the vector responsible for transmitting the illness. (TOS: "The Naked Time")

Increased perspiration rate among males present in the briefing room was one of the symptoms reported by the USS Enterprise's computer when Kirk asked for sensor probe readings. This indicated, much to the embarrassment of Kirk and other men present at the time, that they were physically attracted to Mudd's women. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")

In 2268 Dr. McCoy asked Montgomery Scott if he was experiencing sweating due to a gas grenade he had been exposed to. (TOS: "Spectre of the Gun")
