The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were seven famous and impressive constructions on Earth. All but one had been been destroyed by the 20th century. They were (in order of construction):

  1. Great Pyramid of Giza: built 2550 BC
  2. Hanging Gardens of Babylon: built 600 BC
  3. Temple of Artemis at Ephesus: built 550 BC
  4. Statue of Zeus at Olympia: built 435 BC
  5. Mausoleum of Halicarnassus: built 351 BC
  6. Colossus of Rhodes: built 292 - 280 BC
  7. Lighthouse of Alexandria: built 280 BC

Tom Paris once made Neelix list all seven Ancient Wonders of the World in the order of their construction. Neelix was able to name the first six wonders, Seven of Nine helped him with the seventh, the Lighthouse of Alexandria. This feat caused Paris to declare Borg photographic memory "the wonder of the modern world". (VOY: "11:59")

In 2375, Tony Cicci, a hologram in the jack-in-the-box affected Bashir 62 holoprogram, described Odo as the "eighth wonder of the world" for his natural Changeling abilities. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

It's unclear that this reference was to the Ancient Wonders. It could have been to any one of the various lists of Wonders propagated throughout Earth's history.
