A lute was a variety of stringed musical instrument found in several different cultures, including Humans, Vulcans, Edosians and Bajorans.

Its music was considered a suitable accompaniment for (and therefore symbolic representation of) peaceful actions rather than war. In 2267, while opining his belief that man was not meant for paradise, James T. Kirk suggested that "maybe we can't stroll to the music of the lute. We must march to the sound of drums." (TOS: "This Side of Paradise")
