The navigation console was a console located on the bridge of a starship. The console contained the flight control interface, which was designed to monitor and project a vessel's course and velocity. The console also included sensors to determine the position, speed, and trajectory of other objects and ships.
In the 2250s and 2260s, the navigation console was separate from the helm. In addition to coordinating course changes, the navigation console was also designed to allow crewmen to manage weapons firing. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver", "Obsession", "Elaan of Troyius") By 2266, the function of the navigational console was taken over by the helm. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")
