A bow was a curved and stringed weapon that projected arrows. Kinetic energy is stored in the limbs of the bow and transformed into rapid motion when the string is released, with the string transferring this force to the arrow. Bows were used for hunting, sport, and warfare.
HistoryEdit2260s, Members of the Hill People tribe on the planet Neural hunted with bows and arrows, including Tyree and Yutan. (TOS episode: "A Private Little War")
