The United States Navy wore officer rank insignia somewhat similar to the 23rd century Starfleet, that being a series of sleeve stripes to denote rank. Starfleet and US Navy uniforms, however, are quite different in appearance. One 20th century observer once remarked "that's hardly a Navy uniform" when seeing a Starfleet uniform. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")
In an alternate timeline the San Francisco Bay was inadvertently visited in 1944 by Commander Charles Tucker III and Ensign Travis Mayweather in Shuttlepod 1 of the starship Enterprise NX-01. They witnessed that a substantial Navy Task Force, comprised of at least two aircraft carriers, had been gathered in the bay. (ENT: "Zero Hour", "Storm Front")
In 1968, John Christopher, upon hearing the name "USS Enterprise", mistook the starship for being a Navy vessel, before Captain Kirk corrected him, stating that UESPA was a "combined service." (TOS: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")
