Tonia Barrows wearing a hennin

Barrows' hat with a veil attached

For the nebula, please see Veil Nebula.

A veil was a long gauzy item of clothing usually worn on or over the head.

When reveling in the beauty of the Shore Leave Planet, Yeoman Tonia Barrows thought she ought to be wearing a tall hat with a veil. (TOS: "Shore Leave")

Veils could also be worn when in a state of mourning. (TNG: "The Nth Degree")

A veil could also be used as a metaphor for an obstruction to understanding. While praying to the Prophets, Kai Winn asked them to lift a veil of darkness from Benjamin Sisko. (DS9: "Rapture")

A Risian traditional wedding dress that Leeta was shown in 2373 also appeared to feature a veil. (DS9: "Call to Arms")
