Fencing was a sport from Earth that involves two competitors, wearing protective clothing, engaged in combat with a foil, a thin, blunted sword-like weapon. The goal of the competitors was to score points by making "touches" with the foil on the opponent's body. The first competitor to reach a set number of points was declared the winner.

Hikaru Sulu was an avid fencer and once described himself as a "master swordsman". While affected by the Psi 2000 virus in 2266, Sulu chased crewmen around the corridors of the USS Enterprise with his fencing foil. (TOS episode: "The Naked Time"; TOS comic: "No Compromise Part One")

Shortly after being assigned to the Enterprise in 2267, Ensign Pavel Chekov decided to take up fencing, and for a while he would practise against the ship's computer. However, after some goading from Sulu and Nyota Uhura, Chekov decided to practise against Sulu. (TOS comic: "No Compromise Part One")

Lieutenant Thule G'Dok Glemoor was an avid fencer. He and Captain Rachel Garrett often fenced, though Garret preferred dueling with sabers. (TLE novel: Well of Souls)

Captain Jean-Luc Picard was also a keen fencer and faced a number of competitors during his time aboard the USS Enterprise-D, including Commander Riker, Lieutenant Dean and Guinan. (TNG episodes: "We'll Always Have Paris", "I, Borg", "Lessons")
