In the decade of the 1960s, following the Great Depression and the World War II on Earth, the Brush Wars and the Earth Cold War rise to dangerous levels. The fear instilled in many Human youths in the 1950s and the tragic deaths of hopeful figures like John F. Kennedy lead them to seeking alternative lifestyles such as the rock 'n roll movement and the hippie counterculture. The Civil Rights Movement begins, as well as several student protest organizations, including the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley, California. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth", DS9: "Past Tense, Part II", "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang", VOY: "Future's End")

Thanks to the sabotage by Gary Seven on an orbital nuclear weapons platform, an agreement against the use of such weapons is reached, but the Cold War sets the stage for the World War III. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")

In the field of art and entertainment, the films The Alamo and Rosemary's Baby are released. Mission: Impossible is a popular television program during this decade. Performers include the Berman's Rainbow Dreamers, Steppenwolf, and Jimi Hendrix. The Woodstock Music and Art Festival is a milestone event of the hippie era. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang", "Past Tense, Part II", ENT: "Twilight", VOY: "Future's End", "Death Wish", Star Trek: First Contact)

The Human "space race" reaches its peak. Along with the launch of the Ranger and Apollo spacecraft, Humanity makes the first steps on another world when Neil Armstrong walks on Luna at the end of the decade. The crash and salvaging of a "UFO" triggers an advancement in technology, with the development of the first isograted circuit. (TOS: "The Cage", Star Trek: Enterprise opening credits)

Outside Earth, civilization ends on Earth Two when a virus kills all adult individuals. (TOS: "Miri")
