List of areas in the United States National Park System

The National Park System of the United States is the collection of physical properties owned or administered by the National Park Service. The collection includes all national parks and most national monuments, as well as several other types of protected areas of the United States; as of January 2020, there are 419 units of the National Park System. However, this number is somewhat misleading. For example, Denali National Park and Preserve is counted as two units, since the same name applies to a national park and an adjacent national preserve, yet Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve is counted as one unit, despite its double designation. Counting methodology is rooted in the language of a park's enabling legislation. In addition to areas of the National Park System, the National Park Service provides technical and financial assistance to several affiliated areas authorized by Congress. Affiliated areas are marked on the lists below; the National Register of Historic Places, which contains nearly 79,000 entries, is administered by the National Park Service.

All significant park units are automatically included on the NRHP—i.e. All national historical parks and historic sites, national battlefields and military parks, national memorials, as well as some national monuments. National Park System units are found in all 50 states, in Washington, D. C. and in the U. S. territories of Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U. S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico. Nearly all units managed by the National Park Service participate in the National Park Passport Stamps program. There are 62 designated national parks in the United States and its dependent areas; as of 2019, there are 128 national monuments, 84 of which are administered by the NPS and are listed below. The remaining 44 monuments are administered by five other federal agencies. Two, Grand Canyon–Parashant and Craters of the Moon National Monuments, are jointly administered by the NPS and the Bureau of Land Management, Tule Lake National Monument is joint with the Fish and Wildlife Service.

There are 19 national preserves in the United States. Ten are distinct stand-alone official units of the National Park System, while nine others are areas of distinct management policies and land-use restrictions within a larger "national park and preserve" or "national monument and preserve" that are counted as two units of the National Park System by the National Park Service. Two other sites are areas of distinct management policies and land-use restrictions within a larger park but by statute are counted by the National Park Service as single units of the National Park System. There are 57 national historical parks. Authorized national historical parks The National Park Service administers the national historic sites, with the exception of Grey Towers National Historic Site and those that are managed as Affiliated Areas of the National Park System. There are 89 national historic sites, of which 78 are NPS units and 11 are affiliated areas. There are 30 national memorials that are five affiliated national memorials.

There are 18 national recreation areas administered by the National Park Service. There are 10 national seashores. There are three national lakeshores, located in Wisconsin. There are five national rivers and ten national wild and scenic rivers administered as distinct units of the National Park System. National reserves are partnerships between federal and local authorities. Within the boundaries of the three national reserves are combinations of federal land, state parks and forests, local public lands, private properties. Ten roadways and surrounding scenic areas are managed by the NPS as parkways, four of which as official units and five as part of other units; these National Park Service trails are part of the larger National Trails System. Only three of the trails are considered official units of the park system. Most national cemeteries are administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, although a few are managed by the National Park Service and the U. S. Army. None of the cemeteries are considered official units of the system.

The National Park Service provides limited assistance to national heritage areas, but does not administer them. There are 11 NPS units of other designations, as well as other affiliated areas; the National Mall and national capital parks have many sites, some of which are units of other designations and some are national historic sites. There are various administrative groups of listed parks, such as Manhattan Sites, National Parks of New York Harbor, Western Arctic National Parklands; the NPS owns conservation easements for part of the area called the Green Springs National Historic Landmark District. In the 1930s and 1940s, the NPS developed dozens of recreational demonstration areas, most of which became national or state parks.

Prophecy (Star Trek: Voyager)

"Prophecy" is the 160th episode of the TV series Star Trek: Voyager, the 13th episode of the seventh season. The episode stem cells. An antique Klingon D7-class vessel attacks Voyager, cloaked. Using a metaphasic scan, Seven of Nine calculates the position of the ship, allowing Tuvok to fire on it and disable their cloaking device; the captain of the Klingon ship, refers to the Federation as "sworn enemies of the Empire." Kohlar doesn't believe Kathryn Janeway when she says that the Federation and the Empire have been at peace for eighty years. However, when Kohlar sees B'Elanna Torres -, pregnant - he abruptly changes his mind. Kohlar has his crew fake a core breach on his ship so that all the Klingons aboard are transported to Voyager; when he is confronted by Janeway about this, he explains that he believes Torres' unborn child is the prophesied "Kuvah'magh," the savior of the Klingon people, the one whom Kohlar's ancestors left the Klingon world in a multi-generational voyage in order to meet.

The elder Klingons are skeptical because Torres is only half Klingon and thus her daughter will be only one-quarter Klingon. Other Klingons bother Torres when she is working, prompting her to beam from place to place. T'Greth, one of the Klingons, challenges Tom Paris, B'Elanna's husband, to a duel to the death, which Paris accepts. At Janeway's insistence, however, T'Greth and Paris agree to a non-lethal duel with blunted bat'leths. To everyone's surprise, T'Greth loses the duel, it turns out that T'Greth suffers from a incurable disease known as Nehret, which afflicts all Klingons aboard Kohlar's ship, now Torres and her unborn child as well. T'Greth convinces some of the other Klingons to take over Voyager. After much fighting, the Voyager crew retakes the ship; the Doctor comes up with a cure by using stem cells from B'Elanna's baby. The Klingons relocate to an M-class planet while Paris and Torres agree to consider "Kuvah'magh" as a possible name for the baby. A subplot concerns Harry Kim not wanting to mate with Ch'Rega, a Klingon woman who lusts after him because he broke up a fight between her and another Klingon over food.

However, he is not attracted to her in return. Neelix offers to take her off Harry's hands. Harry pretends with Neelix to be threatened that Neelix will cut the food from his stomach if he was seen taking more than his share of food again, Ch'Rega is most impressed. Neelix and Ch ` Rega have sex in Tuvok's quarters. Tuvok tells him to get out after seeing the destruction. In 2019, Den of Geek included this episode on a binge watching guide that included a roadmap of episodes, that although not achieving high ratings, might still be entertaining to some.
