HMS Victory was an ancient Earth sailing vessel that had belonged to the British Royal Navy, and one of the most famous ships in its naval history. She had served as the flagship for Admiral Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Nelson himself was killed in the battle.

In 2365, Geordi La Forge was preparing to give a model of Victory to the captain of the starship USS Victory. The model was slightly damaged as a result of Moriarty's tampering with the holodeck. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")

The model was flying the famous flag signal "England expects that every man will do his duty".

In 2366, Captain Picard remarked to Guinan that Nelson toured Victory shortly before Trafalgar while Picard himself debated whether or not to engage a Borg cube. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds")

From the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 544), it was stated that the model of the Victory "still graces the late Gene Roddenberry's office in the home of his widow, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry."
