A records officer was a position on Federation starships in the 23rd century, responsible for compiling and managing information regarding a ship's mission and assignments.

In 2267, the records officer aboard the Starship Enterprise was Lieutenant Commander Benjamin Finney. During that year, the Enterprise encountered a violent ion storm, and Finney was assigned duty in the ion pod for the purpose of gathering information on the storm. When the ship went to red alert, the ion pod was jettisoned, and Finney was presumed killed. (TOS: "Court Martial")
