A targe was a kind of shield which was usually studded.

When engineer Montgomery Scott entered into a drinking competition with Tomar in 2268, one of the Kelvans in Human form, a number of Scottish objects could be seen hanging on his room's wall, such as a Scottish Highland targe, a kilt, a sporran, and bagpipes. (TOS: "By Any Other Name")

The word "targe" is pronounced "tahrj". The word "target" originally meant "little targe".
