Magic was an art which proposes to make use of the supernatural to control or overcome natural events. One who makes use of magic is known as a magician. Some races, such as the Megans or the Q appeared to use magic. Some religious groups also claimed to use magic, such as witches. (TAS: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu")

As a child Gary Mitchell was interested in magic tricks, which along with his skill at guessing games, fortold his extrasensory abilities. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

Magic in the universe of Megas-Tu

In the alternate universe in which Megas-Tu was located, magic was the natural law. The Megans used magic in their daily lives. When the Enterprise was accidentally transported to this universe through the creation point in the galactic core, they found that they could use magic abilities that did not exist in the normal universe. Spock explored these new abilities by drawing a pentagram on the floor, and while standing in it, used the power of his belief to move a Vulcan chess piece. Sulu used magic to conjure up a beautiful woman before Lucien warned him that using mental powers would attract unwanted attention. (TAS: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu")

These abilities are reminiscent of psychoprojective telepathy and telekinesis.
