The Dove Society was a pacifistic organization formed on Earth in the early 21st century. The Dove Society was notable for the unprecedented relationship it managed to form with the intelligence communities of the newly formed United Earth government, as both recognized they had the common goal of preserving the fragile unity of the global community. The Dove Society continued to operate for over a hundred years, until the start of the Earth-Romulan War.
John Gill taught about the Dove Society in his pre-Federation history course at Starfleet Academy. Cadet James T. Kirk had been fascinated by the group, and he attempted to use their tactics in dealing with an upperclassman named Sean Finnegan.
