The USNS Lewis and Clark (T-AKE-1) is an American dry cargo ship, the lead ship of its class. The ship was built by the company National Steel and Shipbuilding Company, commonly referred to as NASSCO, an American shipbuilding company with three shipyards located in San Diego, Norfolk, and Mayport. It is a division of General Dynamics. She was launched on 21 May 2005 and commissioned by the U.S. Navy on June 2006.

The T-AKE is a replenishment naval vessel operated by Military Sealift Command with civilian mariner crews augmented by military personnel. The ship is used to deliver ammunition, provisions, stores, spare parts, potable water, and petroleum products to carrier battle groups and other naval forces, serving as a shuttle ship or station ship.

The Lewis and Clark Class T-AKE is a dry cargo/ammunition ship, totaling 14 ships. Designed to operate independently for extended periods at sea while providing underway replenishment services, the T-AKE directly contributes to the ability of the Navy to maintain a forward presence.

The Lewis and Clark Class T-AKE ship has a length of 210 meters, a beam of 32.2 meters, a draft of 9.12 meters, and a displacement of 41,000 tons. She can carry almost 7,000 metric tons of dry cargo and ammunition and 23,500 barrels of marine diesel fuel.
