Vendorian as a table

"Carter Winston" pretending to be a table

An examination table, or examining table, was a standard component of most starship sickbays during the 23rd century. It was eventually replaced by the more advanced biobed.

In 2269, a Vendorian spy aboard the USS Enterprise who had previously taken the form of Carter Winston, assumed the form of an examination table in an attempt to elude capture. James T. Kirk recognized that there were three tables where there had previously been two and threatened the Vendorian with a vial of Orientine acid if he didn't reappear. The empty threat worked.

In 2374, Seven of Nine recalled being restrained on an examination table by Kovin and other Entharans. Upon a visit to his laboratory to investigate her claims, no such tables were found. (VOY: "Retrospect")
