Love is an emotion that can be expressed about any lifeform, inanimate object, time period, or spatial area. It is typically associated with affection, compassion, happiness, and when between people, sexual attraction. For Humans, it can be one of the strongest feelings one individual has for another and lead to procreation.

In 2268, Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, trying to defend tribbles, stated that Cyrano Jones had told her that "a tribble is the only love that money can buy." Captain James T. Kirk replied that "Too much of anything, Lieutenant, even love, isn't necessarily a good thing." (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

Captain Montgomery Scott once expressed his love for starships, particularly the USS Enterprise, by using an analogy about females, stating "You don't ever love a woman quite the way you did that first one." (TNG: "Relics")

The Borg have referenced romantic love in over six thousand assimilated species. (VOY: "The Disease")

Love in media Edit

Love can be expressed through artistic means. In 2373, Q hoped Captain Kathryn Janeway would be seduced with a Drabian love sonnet. (VOY: "The Q and the Grey")

Movies on the subject of love were quite common in Human society. One example was Love's Lovely Love. (ENT: "Cogenitor") I Love Lucy was a popular television show in the 1950s. (ENT: "Carbon Creek").

In the 24th century, holoprograms involving love existed like Vulcan Love Slave, and the sequels, Vulcan Love Slave, Part Two: The Revenge and Vulcan Love Slave, Volume Three. (DS9: "The Ascent", "Doctor Bashir, I Presume", "The Emperor's New Cloak")
