For information about Star Trek releases and related events in the 21st century, please see the production timeline.

The 21st century, defined in the calendar of Earth as the period from 2001 to 2100, was a decisive turning point in Human history. After World War III devastated large parts of Earth placing Humanity in near-extinction, Zefram Cochrane made his historic jump to Warp 1 with the Phoenix making First contact with the Vulcans, ushering in a renaissance of peace, unity and development for Humankind. As well, in the latter decades of this century, this was the era of Humanity's earliest space explorations to nearby star systems. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver"; TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before"; Star Trek: First Contact; Star Trek: Enterprise)

This event occurred prior to or in 2069 for the code they used for their ship was last used in that year.

Apocrypha Edit

According to a Hewlett Packard Enterprise commercial intended to tie-in with Star Trek Beyond, at the beginning of the 21st century was in need of a new way to keep up with the data from over thirty billion devices. Scientists from Silicon Valley made a breakthrough, The Machine, which changed the basic architecture of computers, and by doing so changed the world. The Machine was said to have been the path of every new technology for the next 250 years. [1]
