"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
– FDR, 1933 ("The Thaw")

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, also known as 'FDR', was a 20th century Human who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 until his death in 1945.

After Jonathan Archer restored a damaged timeline, Franklin D. Roosevelt giving a speech could be seen in the time stream as the timeline realigned itself. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")

In an alternate timeline, Leonard McCoy saved Edith Keeler from dying in a traffic accident, allowing her to continue striving for her goals of peace and eventually founding one of the largest peace movements in the United States of America. Her actions finally attracted the attention of President Roosevelt, with whom she met on February 23, 1936, to confer on her plan of action for assisting the needy. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

In the alternate 1944 presented in ENT: "Storm Front, Part II", Alicia Travers stated the president had called upon the Americans to fight the Nazi invasion of the USA, shortly before he left Washington, DC. It's possible this unnamed president was Roosevelt too, but since that timeline had been drastically changed as early as 1916, this is only one possibility.

In a holoprogram set in 1944 France, a picture of Roosevelt adorned the tent of Captain Miller. (VOY: "The Killing Game")

Such a picture also adorned the office of Dixon Hill's secretary, Madeline and later Dixon Hill's own office. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye", "Manhunt", "Clues")

A headline from a 1941 edition of the San Francisco Herald read "Hitler on the move", followed by the subheading "Roosevelt presses Congress for British aid". (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

Roosevelt was briefly referenced in the final draft script of ENT: "Daedalus", likening Emory Erickson leaning on Enterprise's transporter console to Roosevelt "support[ing] himself on a podium during a speech."
Roosevelt's mirror universe counterpart was mentioned in The Sorrows of Empire.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd ed., p. 420), the USS Roosevelt was not named for Franklin D. Roosevelt, but rather his distant relative Theodore Roosevelt.
