Handedness was an individual's preference for using one hand over the other.

Geordi La Forge was right-handed. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle") Ezri Dax was right-handed before being joined with the Dax symbiont. (DS9: "Afterimage")

In 2365, Data, while playing Sherlock Holmes on the holodeck, asserted that a left-footed person was also left-handed. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")

One's handedness could be determined by an analysis of one's handwriting. In 2369, Data, as Holmes again, attempted to prove that a right-handed murder victim's left-handed brother wrote a suicide note by throwing a box of matches to the man. The accused caught it with his right hand due to a holodeck malfunction. Reginald Barclay asked James Moriarty if he was right or left handed, to which Moriarty replied that he was left-handed. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle")

Some pitchers had a dominant hand. In 2371, Benjamin Sisko asked Kasidy Yates if the Pike City Pioneers could use a right-handed pitcher. (DS9: "Family Business")

A boxer or fighter who was left-hand dominant was called a southpaw. (VOY: "Tsunkatse")
