See Court Martial for the Original Series episode.

A court martial was a judicial proceeding in military organizations, such as the United Federation of Planets Starfleet used to try criminal offenses committed by members of the organization.

Courts martial were called in order to examine the conduct of a Starfleet Captain when a starship is lost. (Note: Lost refers to literal "misplacement" of the starship, when it has been abandoned and its destruction cannot be confirmed.) (TNG novel: The Buried Age).

Courts martials could be arranged by the Starfleet Judge Advocate General or by a Flag Officer commanding a starbase. (TOS episode: "Court Martial")
