A bodyguard is a security position held by a operative who protects another person (or persons) from danger or threat.
Bodyguards were commonly used by individuals in power in the Mirror Universe. (ENT novel: Age of the Empress) High ranking members of the Klingon Empire would also employ bodyguards. (TOS eBook: Mere Anarchy: Its Hour Come Round) The bodyguards for the Emperor of the Klingon Empire were called the Honor Guard. (TNG video game: Klingon Honor Guard)
Lieutenant commander Data built a series of experimental robotic bodyguards after losing Ensign Yen to a rock climbing accident in 2375. The experiment of using the robotic guards went very wrong and Data had to find a method of disabling the robots without causing any further harm. (TNG short story: "Protecting Data's Friends")
