Battle stations was a general alarm used in naval operations (such as those that influenced the policies of Starfleet) when a starship was going into battle. On Federation starships, a battle stations alarm was usually made in addition to a red alert (or, earlier, tactical alert) alarm.

On Deep Space 9 and the USS Defiant, personnel carried type 2 phasers while a battle stations alarm was in effect. This practice was also adopted on the USS Enterprise-E by 2379. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", "Call to Arms"; Star Trek Nemesis)

In 2373, Captain Jean-Luc Picard called for red alert and battle stations when he ordered the Enterprise-E to the Battle of Sector 001. (Star Trek: First Contact)
