Decatur was a small city located on Earth in Texas, United States of America. The etymology of the 20th century craps slang-phrase "Eighter from Decatur," meaning that the player needed to roll an eight on the die, originated in reference to this city.

The novel Hotel Royale character Texas, a Lubbock native encountered by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D, was overheard making a reference to Decatur while he and Vanessa played the craps table in 2365. (TNG: "The Royale")

The full craps phrase is "Eighter from Decatur, County Seat of Wise."
