For the production staff, hair stylist, please see Steward (hair stylist).

A steward was an attendant who managed food services aboard starships in various capacities, including food server. Duties may also include looking after passengers' needs.

Enterprise NX-01 had several stewards assisting its Chef, including Crewman Daniels and Taylor. (ENT: "Cold Front") Crewman Alex also served as steward during Archer's dinner with Vulcan Captain Vanik. (ENT: "Breaking the Ice")

Though Alex was only seen when Archer asked him to escort Vanik back to launch bay, the call sheet for the episode is listing "1 Steward (Mark Corvey)".

After T'Pol and Archer were taken hostage by the Coridanite Traeg in 2151, who were under the impression that Archer was a tactical officer, T'Pol corrected their misconception by claiming that he was actually the ship's steward, and that "We're here to prepare a banquet for your Chancellor." After they left, Archer was a bit insulted by the insinuation that he was "a steward?" (ENT: "Shadows of P'Jem")

One night when Trip Tucker revealed to Captain Archer that that night's menu included prime rib with real horseradish, Archer thanked him and said he would "have the steward send some up." (ENT: "Vox Sola")

In preparation of the impending arrival of Ambassador V'Lar aboard Enterprise NX-01, T'Pol recommended that they "assign a steward to attend to her needs." (ENT: "Fallen Hero")

Trip Tucker expressed concern that Jonathan Archer might demote him to steward after his debacle on the Arkonian moon, mimicking the role, "Your orange juice, sir. Jam or marmalade, sir?" (ENT: "Dawn")

The Vissian chief engineer compared a steward aboard Enterprise with their cogenitor and asked Captain Archer what he would think when a steward asked for asylum with the Vissians. Archer informed him that the stewards are not forced to work. (ENT: "Cogenitor")

Among the jobs held by Richard Bashir was that of a third-class steward on a shuttle run for a six month stint. According to Bashir, with that job, "I was required to have daily contact with the passengers. And you can bet that if I even looked at them the wrong way, I would've been discharged on the spot." (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume")
