A bed was a flat, tilted, or semi-flat surface often elevated above the ground and used to sleep on. They were often pieces of furniture. One alternate variety was the hammock. (DS9: "Explorers")


Varieties

Human culture

Shortly after arriving on Deep Space 9, Benjamin and Jake Sisko went to their quarters and found there were no beds. Chief Miles O'Brien told the two that a spare bunk was available from the Enterprise-D. (DS9: "Emissary")

Alien culture

Klingon beds were thought to be uncomfortable by Humans. (TNG: "Unification I")

Cardassian beds were also found to be uncomfortable to Humans, but according to Vash, sleeping in any bed, even a Cardassian one was a luxury to her, since she usually slept on the ground in tents. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I", "Q-Less")

Later that year, the Arbazan Ambassador Taxco refused to sleep one more night on a Cardassian bed, because of the staring gargoyles on the woodpoles. (DS9: "The Forsaken")

As Odo was a shape-shifter he did not used a bed, though he had liked sleeping in one when experiencing humanoid life. While sleeping, he would lose his solid state and turn to a gelatinous substance, causing him to slide onto the floor. (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow")

Uses

Beds were mostly used for getting rest, either by lying quietly or sleep.

In 2266, Dr. Leonard McCoy ordered geological technician Fisher to bed. (TOS: "The Enemy Within") In 2364, Dr. Beverly Crusher ordered Captain Jean-Luc Picard to bed after he contracted a virus brought to the USS Enterprise-D from Quazulu VIII. (TNG: "Angel One")

In 2369, Benjamin Sisko tossed and turned around his bed, shortly before waking up on the floor while trapped in the Chula game. (DS9: "Move Along Home")
