A historian is an individual who researches, and interprets, past or current events in the field known as history.

In the 23rd century and the 24th century, historians were often assigned to Federation starships to complement a starship's experts. (TOS: "Space Seed", TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

At least in the 23rd century, the smaller size of crew complements may have necessitated that the historian billet was a secondary specialty. For example, in James Blish's prose adaptation of "Space Seed", Marla McGivers's primary billet was said to be that of a control systems specialist.

The Lyran Starfleet also employed historians on galactic survey cruisers and other ships used to fill the explorer role. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files:"Dilithium Dance", "Rode the 300")

The original creator of the Tuition Crisis holographic program was one of the greatest Klingon historians specialized in ancient tuition history. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Rode the 300")
