The United States Navy, more commonly called the USN or US Navy was a branch of the military of the United States of America.


The Navy was tasked with conducting naval operations for the United States. The Navy traces its history back to the Continental Navy, which was active during the American Revolutionary War. The modern Navy came into being in 1797 as the new nation faced threats from rival powers to its interests.

In 1986, the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was boarded by Pavel Chekov and Nyota Uhura. The two had traveled back to that year from the 23rd century along with the other command crew members of the late USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). Chekov and Uhura had boarded the Enterprise to collect high energy protons from the ship's fission reactor, in the hopes that the dilithium crystals of the HMS Bounty could be regenerated. A power loss registered in the ship, and the Enterprise crew realized there were intruders on board. Uhura was able to escape, but Chekov was captured. (TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Voyage Home)

The U.S. Navy still existed as late as the 22nd century, when future United Earth Starfleet Admiral Maxwell Forrest considered joining it as a way to earn money to pay for college. (TNG - A Time to... novel: A Time to Sow)

The United Earth Starfleet and the later Federation Starfleet both adopted their rank structures from that used by the United States Navy and other Naval forces, along with many of the customs and traditions of these forces.
