An honor detachment was a division of musicians whose duty it was to pay respect to visiting dignitaries.

Starfleet starships on active duty did not have honor detachments assigned to them. In 2269, Captain Kirk explained this to the Excalbian image of Abraham Lincoln when he asked where the musicians playing his fanfare were. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")
