Russia was a country in the continents of Europe and Asia on Earth. This was the largest country of the planet. The capital was Moscow. Its official language was Russian.

HistoryEdit

In 1917, the ruler of the country, the tsar, was overthrown and replaced by a communist government under Vladimir Lenin. Russia was a communist state until the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991. (ENT: "Storm Front"; VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

In an alternate timeline, Vladimir Lenin was assassinated in 1916. As a result, the Communist revolution never took place. The German invasion of the country in this alternate World War II was more successful than in the original timeline, succeeding in reaching and overrunning Moscow. However, by early 1940s Russians were trying to take back Moscow, which many Germans felt was because they were advancing too far too quickly in their military endeavors around the world. (ENT: "Storm Front")

Pavel Chekov was born in Russia in 2245. Irina Galliulin, with whom Chekov was romantically involved, was also of Russian descent. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?", "The Way to Eden")

A 21st century-era political map of Earth was stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. The location of this country was labeled on this map. it was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

In early 2375, Worf and Miles O'Brien talked about Worf's childhood in Russia. (DS9: "Image in the Sand")

Background Edit

The map used in the remastered "The Cage" was a Central Intelligence Agency map published in September 2008. The ice shelfs of Antarctica were masked with black ink. [1]

Retroactive continuity: 20th century-era maps of the northern hemisphere Pacific region were stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. One map depicted the east coast of Asia's USSR nation and Alaska on the west coast of North America. Another map depicted the globe from the point of view of the Arctic Circle, showing the same region. These maps were among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")
