A character witness was someone who could affirm certain details about one's character. In 2266, James T. Kirk offered to testify at Harry Mudd's trial as a character witness in lieu of leaving him behind on Rigel XII. Mudd was of the opinion that if Kirk did, they'd "throw away the key." (TOS: "Mudd's Women")
That year, the USS Enterprise computer began to list nine eyewitnesses who could identify Kodos the Executioner, but only got up to five before Kirk interrupted it: himself, Thomas Leighton, E. Molson, Kevin Riley and D. Eames. All were death by that point except Kirk and Riley. (TOS: "The Conscience of the King")
An expert witness was someone who had intimate knowledge of a subject pertinent to a trial. In 2372, Benjamin Sisko asked Advocate Ch'Pok to testify at Worf's extradition hearing as an expert witness on the Klingon Empire. (DS9: "Rules of Engagement")
