20th century map depicting the Arctic Circle region

The Arctic Circle was a line of latitude on Earth which marked the boundary between the North Pole, or Arctic regions, and regions south of the circle. The Arctic Circle went through several nations including Canada, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the United States of America. (TOS: "The Cage")

This line of latitude was identified on a political map of the North Pacific region. This map was accessed from the USS Enterprise library computer by the Talosians in 2254.

In 2063, the USS Enterprise-E pursued a Borg sphere to Earth from the 24th century through a Borg-created temporal vortex. The Borg had arrived to destroy the Phoenix, Zefram Cochrane's historic first warp-powered vessel. The Enterprise easily destroyed the sphere, though the Borg crew escaped. (Star Trek: First Contact) Unknown to the Enterprise crew, much of the debris from the Borg ship survived and landed in the Arctic Circle. (ENT: "Regeneration")

Nearly a hundred years later, an Earth Sciences Institute team discovered the debris field and recovered two Borg drones from beneath a glacier. The drones thawed and assimilated the researchers and their ship. (ENT: "Regeneration")

20th century-era maps of the Arctic Circle, including the North Pole were stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. One map depicted the North Pole and nearby continents Asia, Europe and North America. These maps were among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")
