Raven registry

The NAR registry of the USS Raven

For the member of the Hierarchy, please see Nar.

NAR was a type and registry prefix used by the United Nations, the United Federation of Planets, and Pentarus V. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder", "Final Mission"; VOY: "The Raven")

In the 22nd century, NAR was used on Earth as a prefix in the registry of DY-500-class colony ships of UN registry, owned by the OCC. There were also NAR18834-class starships in service at that time. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

In the 23rd and 24th century, the United Federation of Planets continued to use the prefix to register a variety of vehicles and installations, including shuttles, operated by Starfleet and the independent Pentarus system. They were also used in the registries of spacedocks and starships that carried out missions for the Starfleet Advanced Technologies Division and affiliated with organizations such as the Federation Council on Exobiology and research vessels operated from starbases. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; Star Trek Generations; TNG: "Conspiracy", "Hero Worship", "Final Mission"; VOY: "The Raven")

According to Rick Sternbach, the NAR prefix indicates "Merchant-type vessels," further stating that the meaning behind its use "goes back to Mike and me and others in the National Association of Rocketry." [1] According to the Star Trek: Voyager Technical Manual (p. 29), NAR prefixes were among those used on vessels that were non-Starfleet but still under Federation jurisdiction.
