The Ancient West, or the Old West, described the period of 19th century Earth when the American West was being settled. This period in Earth's history would be romanticized in Earth literature and popular culture for centuries, most frequently in stories known as Westerns. (TOS: "Spectre of the Gun"; TNG: "A Fistful of Datas"; DS9: "Paradise"; ENT: "North Star")
In 2153, the Enterprise NX-01 discovered a Human and Skagaran settlement on a planet in the Delphic Expanse that resembled the towns of Earth's Ancient West. It was noted by Charles Tucker that the resemblance was accurate down to the spittoons. (ENT: "North Star")
In 2268, the Melkot trapped James T. Kirk and his landing party in an incomplete recreation of the town of Tombstone, Arizona, where Kirk and crew were to be executed in a reenactment of the infamous gunfight at OK Corral. (TOS: "Spectre of the Gun")
In 2369, Worf, his son, Alexander Rozhenko, and Deanna Troi participated in a holodeck adventure set during the Ancient West in the town of Deadwood, South Dakota. The program was designed by Alexander, with help from Reginald Barclay. Troi, Worf and Alexander played this program when an experiment being conducted by Geordi La Forge and Data went awry and influenced the progam, giving the main characters Data's physical characteristics and removing the holodeck safety protocols, making the 19th century firearms deadly. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas")
