"A lot has changed in three hundred years. People are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of "things". We have eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions. We have grown out of our infancy."

The 24th century, defined in the calendar of Earth as being from 2301 until 2400, was a period of great conflict and political upheaval between the various races and organizations of the Milky Way Galaxy. In the latter half, the Federation makes contact with several new species and civilizations, including powerful new races such as the Q, and other lesser races such as: the Ferengi, the Dominion, and the Borg, the latter two of whom attack the Federation on several occasions. The Romulan Star Empire enters a second period of isolation, lasting approximately fifty years, from which they emerge far stronger than ever before. The Borg attempt to assimilate Earth twice, first in 2366 and again in 2373. The latter year also sees the beginning of the Dominion War, which ends in 2375, with several of the major powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants joining together to defeat the Dominion.

In addition, the Federation makes its first explorations of the Delta and Gamma Quadrants during the latter half of this century. Also, in 2387, the Romulan system is destroyed by a supernova which, due to the actions of Ambassador Spock and Nero, ultimately leads to the creation of an alternate reality.
