As established in the final draft script of the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Carpenter Street", the New York Jets were an American football team based in New York during the early 21st century.

In the script, Charles Tucker III noted to Jonathan Archer – in 2153, moments before Archer traveled back in time to 2004 – that the Jets had been New York's football team and that their name matched that of New York's baseball team, the Mets.
