South America

South America was a continent on Earth and, along with neighboring North America, was the ancestral home of the Native American Human tribes. The cities of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires were located on the South American continent, as were the regions of Brazil, Chile, Peru and Venezuela.

In the mid-20th century, South America was depicted on the mission insignias for Apollo 1, Apollo 7, Apollo 8, Apollo 10, and Apollo 11. (ENT: "First Flight").

In 2153, the Xindi attack on Earth struck this continent with a highly-destructive energy beam from space, killing millions of inhabitants in Venezuela. (ENT: "The Expanse")

At some point Harcourt Fenton Mudd began a Raktajino business in Colombia, distributing the Klingon coffee throughout the Federation. It was a popular beverage on Deep Space 9. (The Art of Star Trek; DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

The prop department placed several in-jokes on the label of the raktajino bottle. The label reads: "100% Columbian," "Made from the Green Hills of Earth" (a title of a novel by Robert Heinlein), and "Imported by Harcourt Mudd".

During a Dixon Hill holoscenario, Data explained his odd appearance to the characters by claiming he was from South America. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

In the Julian Bashir, Secret Agent holoprogram, Hippocrates Noah had a laser site in South America. The continent was one of the last to be flooded when Julian Bashir activated the lasers himself. (DS9: "Our Man Bashir")
