Klingon internal organs

A disemboweled Klingon.

Gutting or disembowelment was the process of removing the internal organs of a lifeform.

In 2151, Nadet believed that Humans had gutted the adults living on Terra Nova. Later, Jamin promised that Malcolm Reed would be gutted if they didn't return below ground. The Novans, who lived in underground cavern and tunnels gutted "Diggers", burrowing animals who lived there too. They did so in their gutting room. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

In 2371, a Talaxian prisoner of Vidiians on Avery III promised Tom Paris he'd eventually be gutted for replacement parts. (VOY: "Faces")

In 2374, The Doctor described an individual who had also undergone an osteotomy at the hands of the Hirogen, as being gutted. (VOY: "Hunters")

The term could also be used metaphorically to describe an action which removed significance from something. In 1957, Herbert Rossoff felt that making Benny Russell's science fiction stories a dream would gut the story. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
