Can't see the video due to being on dii, but I'm guessing it's Patrick Stewart. He also sung "A British Tar" from HMS Pinafore in Star Trek: Insurection.

Just as a note- this is not the only connection to the naval services (although not British) Star Trek has- the bridge design of the original USS Enterprise (NCC-1701 for your geeks out there) was once considered for use by the US Navy (USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Things you never see on the USS Enterprise
Scrubbing out for skippers rounds
Watch handovers and a SCC dit book
No daily orders
Scran or NAAFI queues
No galley buzzes eg we're off to Omega 8 instead of Epsilon 9
Nobody dripping about pay

They don't get paid.
Picard said so in one of the movies.
Their motivation in the 24th century is for higher ideals or some such shite.

They've shown bridge watch handovers on more than one occasion - no dit book though, sadly.

Voyager had an episode dedicated to junior officers who weren't "in the know" which was full of galley buzzes and speculation.

You never see them nip off for a quick dump though.

You never see anyone wearing a red jersey shit themselves when they're nominated as shore party, and just how many security guards went on the 5 year journey as they got wasted practically every episode!
