Asia, also referred to as the Orient, was the largest continent on Earth; it made up a majority of the Eurasian landmass.

During the 19th and 20th centuries, the Orient Express was a train route that traveled from Paris, in Western Europe, to Istanbul, located in Western Asia. (TNG: "Emergence")

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

In the same century, the Asian continent was a location of many Brush Wars fought by the two main opponents in the Cold War, the USSR and the USA, where these two supplied different groups with weapons to gain influence in Asia, but to prevent a full-scale war. This situation was similar to the involvement of the Federation and the Klingon Empire on the planet Neural in the mid-23rd century as was remarked by Captain Kirk. (TOS: "A Private Little War")

In 1968, a government coup took place in Asia which was considered by Spock to have been "dangerous" for Earth's political development. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")

In the real 1968 a coup took place in one Asian country, in Iraq.

In 1992, Khan Noonien Singh rose to power in Asia. (TOS: "Space Seed")

In 2153, the first prototype of the Xindi superweapon self-destructed over Earth; portions of this probe were recovered by a Vulcan ship in Central Asia, due to an undetonated charge in the vessel's engine. (ENT: "The Expanse")

When Worf was a child, he went camping in Asia with his foster father Sergey Rozhenko in the Ural Mountains, which lie approximately 2,000 kilometers east of Minsk. (DS9: "Change of Heart")
