The Yoyodyne Division (also known as Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems or YPS) was a shipbuilding entity.

In the 22nd century the YPS pulse fusion was utilized in DY-500-class colony ships. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

In the 24th century the Division built starships for the United Federation of Planets at various shipyards including 40 Eridani A Starfleet Construction Yards, Copernicus Ship Yards, and San Francisco Fleet Yards.

The firm had an office on Deep Space 9's Promenade. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)

The company's name was listed on a Promenade directory map seen in many episodes of Deep Space Nine.

The existence of this contractor is not mentioned in dialogue, but is derived from the text of the starship dedication plaques and display graphics. It is a reference to The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension!, which, in turn, took the name from Thomas Pynchon's novels V. and The Crying of Lot 49 (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)
