A court martial was a legal trial of an officer by a panel of other high-ranking officers to establish a ruling of innocence or guilt against a charge or charges brought against that officer. (The plural of court martial was courts martial.)
Captain John Greene faced court-martial in 2371 after the loss of the USS Prospect during a Special Operations mission to the Gamma Quadrant to make first contact with the Dominion's Founders. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles) This is assumed as Greene was found innocent as he was given command of the Galaxy-class USS Prospect-A later in the same year.
In 2373, USS Cantabrian commanding officer Noah Wrightson and second officer Antonio Fernandes faced a court martial, mostly for their disobedience of orders not to interfere with the aftermath of Samantha Delaney's triggering of her folded space drive prototype, a remnant of which was severely affecting a pre-warp planet and its inhabitants. The court marital, comprised of Admiral Zahara Hogan, Captain Liam de Gaillimhe and another Starfleet captain, found both not guilty. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Salvation", "Repercussions", "The Betrayed")
In early 2374, Daniel Radke was court martialed for assaulting Dr. Samantha Delaney after Wrightson's disappearance in a temporal rift aboard the Dark Starship at the end of the prior year. He resigned his commission as a result. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "In the Still of the Night")
