A glove was a type of garment that covered the whole hand. It could be used for environmental protection or as a fashion accessory.
Since the Nausicaan Kajek hated the cold in 2268, he would wear warm gloves over his hands when he had his environmental controls turned down on his Andorian outrider. Gloves were also a part of the cold-weather gear that was used by Bridget McLellan and Cervantes Quinn when they had crashed landed on Jinoteur. (VAN - Declassified novella: The Stars Look Down)
