Background information

Presidents' heads on Mount Rushmore from Star Trek V Special Edition DVD

Although the aired version of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier seems to imply that Sulu and Chekov are in Yosemite National Park with Captain Kirk and the others, a deleted part of that scene actually establishes that they are exploring Mt. Rushmore, which has by the 23rd century had the head of an African-American woman President added. The scene was never made a part of any cut of the film, though, so the addition to Mt. Rushmore is non-canon.

The plaque on the fake Yamato

Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President, was part of the deleted scene mentioned above. His quote "I have sworn eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." appeared on the dedication plaque of the USS Yamato in "Where Silence Has Lease".

According to the short story "Eleven Hours Out" in the anthology Tales of the Dominion War, the United States still exists as a political subdivision of United Earth as late as 2375, and is still led by a President.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine guest star Mary Kay Adams (Grilka) is a descendant of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
