A Boatswain (pronounced "Bosun") was a Chief petty officer or Warrant officer who trained and supervised personnel in general ship and base operations, repairs, and protocols. They maintained duty assignments for all enlisted Operations personnel, set the agenda for instruction in general ship and base operations, and supervised auxiliary and utility service personnel for daily ship or base maintenance. They coordinated all personnel cross-trained in damage control operations and supervised damage control and emergency operations.

The Boatswain may assume any Operations role as required and is qualified to temporarily act as a Bridge operations officer if so ordered.

On some vessels, including the USS Prometheus, the position of Boatswain and Chief of the Boat are filled by the same person. (Star Trek: Prometheus)
