Paleontology was the study of the developing history of life. A scientist specialized in this branch was known as a paleontologist.

Commander Chakotay of the starship USS Voyager had a passion for paleontology, and considered becoming a paleontologist himself. He was able to use he skills and knowledge of the subject matter at least twice on Voyager; in 2373, while examining the Distant Origin Theory and in 2376 while searching for a lost Mars spacecraft, Ares IV. (VOY: "Distant Origin", "One Small Step")

In 2378, he was also teaching a class on paleontology. Naomi Wildman was one of his students. That year, she was working on a report on proto-humanoids for his class. (VOY: "Homestead")
