In the Federation Starfleet, there were three distinct divisions, each of which was a grouping of officers and crewmen sharing similar skillsets and occupations. Starfleet officers wore uniforms or insignia of varying colors that identified them as belonging to one division or another. (Star Trek: The Original Series; Star Trek: The Next Generation; Star Trek films; DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Until 2270, this was known as Engineering and Support Services division. (Star Fleet Technical Manual)

Within each division were departments. Between at least the mid-22nd and the late 24th century, the composition of each division changed.

In the 21st-century U.S. Navy, the terms were the reverse, with department being the larger unit, and division the sub-unit of the former.
