A vulture is a large scavenger bird native to Earth.

When Montgomery Scott was asked for a progress report by James T. Kirk on the USS Enterprise's repairs, following an encounter with three Romulan battle cruisers near the Romulan Neutral Zone, Scott told him, "we should be in tiptop shape in another 24 hours, no thanks to those Romulan vultures." (TAS: "The Practical Joker")

When the USS Voyager discovered a nebula rich in sirillium, in 2373, Kathryn Janeway became inundated with ideas of what could be used with the gas, Chakotay acknowledged the suggestions, stating to Janeway, "the vultures are circling." (VOY: "Flashback")

Later that year, when Janeway was encountered by an alien posing as her father, she grew suspicious of his motives and confronted him, stating, "you don't strike me as any kind of good samaritan. You're more like a vulture, preying on people at the moment of their death when they're most vulnerable." (VOY: "Coda")

When Voyager sought refuge on the Vaadwaur homeworld, in 2376, from several Turei vessels that were in orbit, Chakotay described them as "circling like vultures," Janeway assured him, however, that "they're going to go hungry." (VOY: "Dragon's Teeth")

The following year, when Voyager became trapped in "the Void", and their sensors detected that they were being montiored by several other vessels in the Void, looking to steal their resources, Tom Paris described the situation by stating that "the vultures are circling." Upon hearing this, Janeway stated that "vultures eat the dead, Mr. Paris. We're not dead yet." (VOY: "The Void")
