A scandal was a controversial event which gained public consciousness and caused embarrassment for the parties involved.

In 2267, concerned that he wasn't taking the accusations against him seriously enough, prosecutor Areel Shaw warned starship Captain James T. Kirk that the scandal surrounding Benjamin Finney's apparent death at Kirk's hands could motivate Starfleet to expel Kirk openly, quickly, and permanently for the good of the fleet. (TOS: "Court Martial")

In 2370, Prylar Rhit's dabo-related gambling debts had caused a scandal in the Vedek Assembly, earning him recall to Bajor. (DS9: "Shadowplay")

Later that year, Garak recounted a scandal among the Obsidian Order in which some Bajoran prisoners were allowed to escape. (DS9: "The Wire")

In 2371, Kai Winn asked Kira Nerys to speak to Shakaar Edon about the soil reclamators he had stolen, saying she didn't want it to be a scandal. (DS9: "Shakaar")
