Trigger warning: discussion of rape, assault and medical assault.
Becca and Ryan discuss how Star Trek handles the stories of physical and psychic assault on Deanna Troi, Seven of Nine, and T’Pol, with widely varying degrees of success. We look at The Next Generation episode “Violations,” (S5:E12), Voyager episode “Retrospect,” (S4:E17), and Enterprise episode “Fusion,” (S1:E17).

"If an operation is performed on a patient without that patient's consent, and the circumstances were not such as to justify its performance without consent, that operation constitutes an assault and battery." Holding summary via Wikipedia.
"every person has a right to complete immunity of his person from physical interference of others, except in so far as contact may be necessary under the general doctrine of privilege; and any unauthorized touching of the person of another, except it be in the spirit of pleasantry, constitutes an assault and battery." Mohr v. Williams, 104 N.W. 12 (Minn. 1905)
