A blood feud was a conflict between social groups, often families, that resulted in a cycle of retaliatory violence.

Until the 2260s, Acamarian society was plagued by blood feuds between rival clans, in which the slightest injury to a clan member demanded violent retribution. These feuds could last decades or even centuries, passing from generation to generation, and plunged Acamar III into chaos. (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")

Blood feuds were common between the Great Houses of the Klingon Empire. Whenever a Klingon was killed or dishonored, the other members of their House were obligated to seek vengeance. Jadzia Dax jokingly remarked in 2374 that this state of affairs was "boring". (DS9: "Sons and Daughters")

Mogh saved the honor of Huraga's family during their blood feud with the House of Duras. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

There was no blood feud between the House of Martok and House of Kor as of 2375. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")

Captain Jean-Luc Picard characterized the 2375 conflict between the Son'a and the Ba'ku as a blood feud, after discovering that they were members of the same race. (Star Trek: Insurrection)
