Multiple realities
(covers information from several alternate timelines)

Germany was a country on Earth's European continent. A major player in the planet's history, Germany was home to numerous influential Humans. Germany's flag featured the colors black, red and gold. (TNG: "The Last Outpost", ENT: "First Flight")



In addition, the starship USS Emden was presumably named for either the city in northern Germany or for one of several German navy ships of the same name, and Hanover was indirectly mentioned through the House of Hanover.



Famous Germans included physicist Albert Einstein, who formulated the Theory of General Relativity, philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composer Johannes Brahms and printer Johannes Gutenberg. (ENT: "Borderland"; TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah"; TNG: "Descent")

In the mid-20th century, the country was ruled by the fascist Nazi party led by Adolf Hitler, under the name Nazi Germany. His quote "We need breathing room" exemplifies the Nazi regime's stance which ultimately led to its participation in the Second World War. In 1945, the war ended with Germany's defeat and the United States of America emerging as one of the victors. The following establishment of the US as a dominant power would lead to developments resonating on into the 24th century. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever", "Patterns of Force"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; DS9: "What You Leave Behind"; ENT: "Storm Front, Part II"; TNG: "Manhunt")

While not specifically said on-screen, Germany was also a major participant in World War I, and when James T. Kirk mentioned Belgium to be on a natural invasion route, he presumably thought of Germany's invasion to reach France in these two conflicts. Furthermore, Germany was of major strategical importance in the Cold War.

In an alternate reality created by agents of the Temporal Cold War, namely Vosk, Germany was able to launch a successful invasion of England and the eastern coast of the United States of America. These changes were eradicated when Vosk's plan to return home was foiled by Captain Jonathan Archer and the crew of the Enterprise, who were sent back in time as well. (ENT: "Storm Front")

In 2032, Germany took part in the Ares IV mission. (VOY: "One Small Step")

The German flag could be seen on the Ares IV model amongst others.

In 2143, the Ariane 1 assignment patch, which was on display in the 602 Club, bore the flag of ESA member Germany. (ENT: "First Flight")

According to the Star Trek Fact Files, Germany was a member of the International Space Agency in the early 21st century.
It has not been stated on screen if Germany was in any way related with or part of the European Hegemony or the European Alliance.

By 2155, Berlin was the site of a Vulcan consulate. (ENT: "Terra Prime")

In the 2260s Lieutenant Carl Jaeger, who had German ancestors, served as meteorologist and planetologist aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise. (TOS: "The Squire of Gothos")
