Restricted due to anesthetics

Anesthesia was the complete or partial loss of sensation induced by anesthetic drugs. Anesthetic drugs, or anesthetics, were strong sedatives used to numb a patient's response to pain, often by inducing a deep sleep immediately prior to a medical treatment, such as surgery. Anesthetics could be applied in varying degrees and forms depending on the patient's health and requirement of the medical procedure.

Some forms of anesthetic gases were flammable and had to be stored separately from those that were not. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Anesthetics were frequently administered intravenously into the patient's bloodstream with a hypospray or syringe. (VOY: "Critical Care") Anesthetics also existed in gaseous form and could be administered on a large scale through a ship's ventilation system. An example of the latter occurred when The Doctor and the USS Prometheus' EMH Mark II released neurozine gas to incapacitate Romulan Tal Shiar agents who had stolen the vessel. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")

Anesthetic agentsEdit

At the end of the final draft script for ENT: "Acquisition", an "anesthetic agent" is said to have been used to render three FerengiUlis, Muk, and Grish – unconscious. It was also established, in the script, that this anesthetic agent would take forty-eight hours to wear off. However, the anesthetic isn't referred to in the episode itself, with all three Ferengi conscious at the end of the installment.
