World War I from the timestream


World War I, also referred to as The Great War, was a conflict fought mainly in Europe on Earth during the early 20th century. The Central Powers – Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empires and Germany – were opposed by France and Russia and their Allies, Italy and the British and Japanese Empires. In 1917, the fourth year of the war, Russia was embroiled in a series of revolutions and sued for peace with the Central Powers, while the USA entered the war against them.

When John Gill named himself the Führer of Ekos, he wore a World War I vintage Iron Cross as one of his Nazi decorations (TOS: "Patterns of Force"). After Jonathan Archer restored a damaged timeline, scenes from World War I could be seen in the time stream as the timeline realigned itself. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")

In describing the carnage of Earth's first three world wars, Spock noted that six million died in this war. (TOS: "Bread and Circuses")

The original script for "The City on the Edge of Forever" featured a World War I veteran; however, this back-story was dropped from the character.
Spock's figure of six million deaths falls short of the sixteen million casualties of World War I, but may be a reference to seven million civilian deaths or the number of deaths as a result of "despotism".
