A sailor was a person that navigated or worked upon water-borne vessels. Experienced sailors were sometimes referred to as "sea dogs" or "old salts". (VOY: "Concerning Flight", "Thirty Days")

The term "Yankee traders" referred to American sailors of the 18th and 19th centuries who traveled Earth's oceans "in search of mercantile and territorial opportunity." 24th century Federation scholars compared the Ferengi to these ancient seafarers. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

In an alternative 1944, Alicia Travers assumed that Jonathan Archer was a sailor because she associated his Enterprise NX-01 mission patch with the USS Enterprise (CV-6). (ENT: "Storm Front")

In 2267, when the USS Enterprise was ordered to alter its flight plan by Starfleet Command, Captain Kirk explained the situation to Spock as "sailor's luck." (TOS: "Amok Time")

Sailors were among the many London denizens that appeared in Lt. Commander Data's Sherlock Holmes holodeck program. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")

The holographic Leonardo da Vinci hypothesized that had been accosted by Spanish sailors and rendered unconscious to explain how he had arrived at the New World (which was actually an alien planet). da Vinci also claimed that the Portuguese were "mad sea dogs." (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

Commander Chakotay suggested that every sailor's nightmare was being becalmed in the middle of the ocean, similar to the isolated situation that the USS Voyager found itself in while traveling through the Void. (VOY: "Night")

Lieutenant Tom Paris wanted to be a sailor with the Federation Naval Patrol when he was a child, and even as an adult occasionally used terms like first mate and skipper, which he referred to as "sailor talk." (VOY: "Thirty Days")

Nog described is cousin Gant as "just another sailor on the Great River." (DS9: "Treachery, Faith and the Great River")
