Bikini Atoll was a group of approximately twenty islands in Earth's southern Pacific Ocean.

In the mid-20th century, the Bikini Atoll became famous for a series of nuclear weapon tests conducted by the armed forces of the United States of America. An image of an atomic bomb blast at the Bikini Atoll proving ground was contained in the library computer aboard the USS Enterprise in 2254. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

Jonathan Archer compared the Calindra system, used by the Xindi as a weapons testing area in 2153, to Bikini Atoll. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 83) described the Bikini Atoll as a small island made of coral reef in the Marshall Islands.
According to, a two-piece bathing suit worn by females was named after this atoll.
