A consolation prize was an award given to the loser of a competition in the hopes that it would assuage their disappointment.

In 2143, Commander A.G. Robinson offered to buy Jonathan Archer a drink as a consolation prize after Archer lost the chance to break the Warp 2 barrier to Robinson. (ENT: "First Flight")

In 2373, Michael Eddington gave Benjamin Sisko a copy of the novel Les Misérables as a consolation prize, or rather a gift, to make up for Sisko's not being able to catch him. (DS9: "For the Uniform")
