Are you challenging me to a duel, Captain Kirk?! - Trelane, the Retired General of Gothos TOS: "The Squire of Gothos"

A duel was a sporting event where two or more opponents agree to engage in combat against each other. The victor was often the one who was unscathed or generally in a better position than the opponent at the end of the event. Some duels were to the death.

James Kirk and Trelane, the Squire of Gothos battled each other in a duel of guns. Later, they used swords. (TOS: "The Squire of Gothos")

In the 24th century, Frenchmen, like Jean-Luc Picard, used fencing to duel. He invited Guinan to participate in a duel, and she promptly defeated Picard using a fake wounded tactic. (TNG: "I Borg")

Duels are also common with other species, including the Andorian Ushaan , the Vulcan Kal-if-fee and most notably the Klingon Right of Vengeance.
