The Royal Navy was a naval division of the armed forces of Old Britain, a nation on Earth. The division's flag carried on its vessels from 1801 onward, was called the "White Ensign" and one of these was seen on Geordi La Forge's model of HMS Victory. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")
The first ship to bear the name Enterprise, HMS Enterprize was a captured French ship and reflagged for service in the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy fought in the Battle of Trafalgar against the French and Spanish under the command of Lord Nelson aboard the famous HMS Victory. One participant in this famous naval engagement was an ancestor of Jean-Luc Picard, captain of USS Enterprise-D. (Star Trek Generations)
HMS Bounty was a 18th century Royal Navy ship that was well known for having its crew mutiny against its captain, William Bligh. In 2285, Doctor Leonard McCoy dubbed a captured Klingon Bird-of-Prey HMS Bounty in a "fine sense of historical irony." Admiral James T. Kirk continued in his log, stating, "like those mutineers of five hundred years ago, we too have a hard choice to make." (VOY: "Year of Hell, Part II"; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
Malcolm Reed's family came from a Naval background – the Reed men had been Navy men for generations, including Malcolm's grandfather who served as an ordnance officer, and great-uncle who served as chief engineer on HMS Clement. As a child Malcolm wished to serve in the Royal Navy but later found he had fear of water – this was a great disappointment to his father. Commander Charles Tucker referred to this naval history when he asked him to find out where they were, after being stranded in open space, in 2152. (ENT: "Silent Enemy", "Minefield", "Shuttlepod One")
