In an alternate timeline, the Nazi and Na'kuhl alliance faced several setbacks in World War II action in Africa during 1944. (ENT: "Storm Front")

20th century-era maps of Africa were stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. One map depicted Africa in the eastern hemisphere. Another map depicted the globe from the point of view of the Arctic Circle, showing the northern hemisphere, including the north coast of Africa. These maps were among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the mid-20th century, the mission insignias for Apollo 8 and Apollo 11 included western Africa in its design. (ENT: "First Flight")

During the Eugenics Wars, North Africa was a theater of battle. Captain Jonathan Archer's great-grandfather was involved in a campaign in North Africa. During that conflict, he contacted enemy forces in a successful effort to allow some non-combatant civilians time to get to safety. (ENT: "Hatchery")

In the early 21st century, Africa was heavily affected by the AIDS disease. (ENT: "Future Tense")

In the 2130s, Jonathan Archer made a trip to East Africa where he saw a gazelle give birth. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II")

An identical landmass to Africa was observed on Miri's homeworld which was an exact replica of the planet Earth. (TOS: "Miri")

In 2335, Geordi La Forge was born in the African Confederation. (TNG: "Cause and Effect")

In 2369, the holodeck character of Regina Bartholomew told Reginald Barclay of her trip to Africa, where she had taken part in a safari and was allowed to wear trousers all the time. By this date, Barclay had never been to Africa. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle")

According to an Original Series writer's guide, Uhura was born in 2239 in the "United States of Africa". However, no on-screen evidence for the existence of this political entity has ever been established.
