The 1990s decade covers the period from 1990-1999.

The 1990s were described by Spock as a "strange, violent time" in the history of Earth. Along with bacteriological warfare experiments, genetic engineering spawns the Augments. (TOS: "Space Seed", "The Omega Glory") After the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Earth Cold War, the Human "supermen" seize control of large portions of the planet. The devastating Eugenics Wars among those leaders find them defeated and exiled.

In the fields of science, cryonics becomes popular on Earth and space modules are launched. Khan Noonien Singh and his followers are exiled in a sleeper ship. Human scientists discover evidence of past life on Mars and NASA launches the Sojourner, the first vehicle to roam the planet. (TOS: "Space Seed"; TNG: "The Naked Now", "The Neutral Zone"; VOY: "Future's End")

In the late 1990s, the NASA probe Galileo reaches the Jovian moon Europa and takes detailed images of its surface. (PIC: "Watcher")

In an alternate reality, Chronowerx Industries spearheads the advance of computer technology in this decade. (VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

The end of "Future's End, Part II" implies that this never happened as Henry Starling never found Aeon's debris to reverse-engineer. Nonetheless, computer technology still advanced, but Chronowerx probably never existed in the restored timeline.
