"History is written by the victors!"

History is the study of the past as it is described in primary sources, such as written documents. History is commonly associated with both the social sciences and the Humanities disciplines, and relates to past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of information about these events.

History was never Trip Tucker's best subject. He stated this after Sub-commander T'Pol asked him to name a famous Vulcan expedition following Tucker's statement that every school kid on Earth had to learn about the famous Vulcan expeditions. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

Until the USS Enterprise's 2259 discovery of the Kiley using warp in the form of a warp bomb, Science Officer Spock stated that not once in the entire history of first contact had warp been first developed as anything but a drive. (SNW: "Strange New Worlds")

Notable Federation historians include John Gill, who was noted for interpreting history as a series of causes and effects. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

Admiral Jean-Luc Picard became a noted historian following his retirement from Starfleet, having authored many historical works. (PIC: "Remembrance")

History was among numerous school subjects Keiko O'Brien taught in her classroom aboard Deep Space 9. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

In approximately 3074, The Doctor's backup copy, the EMH backup module, was discovered buried beneath the ruins at kesef on the Kyrian and Vaskan homeworld by a research team. The Doctor referred to himself as "some sort of fossil" when he learned that roughly 700 years had passed and he didn't know what happened to the USS Voyager or its crew. Quarren assured him that he wasn't a fossil but rather a living witness to history. (VOY: "Living Witness")
