Crew of a spacecraft.

A crew is a body or a class of people who work at a common activity, generally in a structured or chain of command. Traditional nautical usage strongly distinguishes officers from crew, though the two groups combined form the ship's company. Members of a crew are often referred to by the title Crewman.

Crew also refers to the sport of rowing, where teams row competitively in racing shells.[1]

Crew is used colloquially to refer to a small, tight-knit group of friends or associates engaged in criminal activity . Also used in reference to the traditional "unit" of criminals under the supervision of a organized crime. Crew can also refer simply to a group of friends, unrelated to crime or violence.
