An Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, or Tursiops truncatus, was a cetacean mammal native to the oceans of planet Earth.

Tursiops truncatus.

An image of a Tursiops truncatus appeared on a display within the HMS Bounty when Spock searched for a match for the sounds of the Cetacean Probe amongst Earth's animals. (TOS movie: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In the late 24th century, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins were part of the crew of Federation Galaxy-class starships. They were guidance and navigation specialists working in cetacean ops and the cetacean navigation labs, and were part of a consultation crew of twelve, which included Pacific bottlenose dolphins.
