- By this year, the post-atomic horror is underway. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint".)
- In this year, the number of stars on the United States flag changes from the 52 displayed since 2033. (TNG: "The Royale")
- The episode states that the flag had 52 stars from 2033 until 2079. It is unclear whether the number of stars increases or decreases however, although the state of world turmoil adds the possibility that the United States was altogether dissolved.
- The idea of a post-atomic horror clashes with Star Trek: Enterprise's view of a humanity embracing exploration and scientific development. It is possible that the horror only affected part of the planet - the presence of a Mandarin in Q's court suggests that the Eastern Coalition may have been the superpower affected by the event.
