Midships refers to the middle section of a ship as distinguished from fore or aft. Midships is a locational term mostly associated with water vessels and the maritime side of travel, though it can be used for aircraft, as well.

Midships is often confused with amidships, which is a location on a slightly different plane (from port or starboard).
