Alaska and Bering sea

Westernmost part of Alaska

Alaska was a region in the North American continent of Earth. Bordering the country of Canada, this region later became a state belonging to the United States.

In 1893, a young Jack London told Samuel Clemens of his dream to go to Alaska and was encouraged by Clemens, who mentioned the Klondike and aurora borealis as some of Alaska's features. (TNG: "Time's Arrow, Part II")

In 1986, George and Gracie were flown to Alaska in a special 747 and released into the Bering Sea. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

A 21st century-era political map of Earth was stored in the USS Enterprise's library computer in 2254. The North American continent was seen on this map. This map was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

In the alternate reality of 2258, as the Narada approached Earth, Alaska could be seen on the ship's viewscreen. (Star Trek)

In 2286, during the Whale Probe crisis, Juneau reported that cloud cover had increase to ninety-five percent. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Starfleet Commander William T. Riker was born in Alaska in 2335. He spent his childhood in this state. When the night was cold, his father cooked for his son split pea soup. Riker remembered, years later, how the soup kept him warm. (TNG: "Unnatural Selection", "The Icarus Factor", "Conundrum", "The Outcast", "Lower Decks")

In 2343, after Riker hooked an Alaskan fish, his father took the pole from his son and reeled the fish in. Riker was photographed holding the fish. (TNG: "The Icarus Factor")

The first part of Riker and Deanna Troi's wedding was held in Alaska in 2379. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Earth map, 20th century, North Pacific

Retroactive continuity: A 20th century-era political map of Earth was stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. According to this map, the International Date Line was between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (later Russia) and the United States of America. The line went through the North Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea. This map was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")

The script of DS9: "One Little Ship" mentioned another Alaskan location, Point Barrow.

Both the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 223) and StarTrek.com identified Valdez, Alaska as Riker's place of birth. [1]

The Alaska pavilion in Star Trek Nemesis was built as a set on Paramount Stage 32.

Alaska was used as a filming location twice. It was the first filming location ever outside of California when Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country filmed some Rura Penthe scenes there (more information here). Aerial shots of Alaska were also used to establish Delta Vega in Star Trek.
