An Akaali clipper ship

A clipper ship was a type of sailing ship.

When Data met Guinan in San Francisco in the year 1893 and told her he was from the Enterprise she asked whether that was a clipper ship, not knowing about her future stay on the USS Enterprise-D, the ship Data was referring to. (TNG: "Time's Arrow")

In the mid-20th century, the assignment patch for Apollo 12 included a clipper ship in its design. (ENT: "First Flight")

The command/service module for this mission was named Yankee Clipper, in honor of the clippers built in New England.

Travis Mayweather kept a model of the clipper ship Sea Witch in his old quarters aboard the ECS Horizon. (ENT: "Horizon")

The Akaali built similar three-masted clipper ships as the crew of Enterprise NX-01 was able to observe from orbit when visiting the Akaali homeworld in 2151. (ENT: "Civilization")

The script for "Civilization" only specified the Akaali ship was to be "a wooden sailing craft" but Trip Tucker used the term "clipper ship" in dialogue.
