- The TNG version of 21st century history states that World War III took place in the 2050s, and the post-atomic effects were recorded in the 2060s and 2070s in Star Trek: First Contact and "Encounter at Farpoint". It seems that a high profile, well-outfitted colonization effort using the infant warp drive technology came from this turmoil. The version of events presented in Enterprise relates well with the launch of SS Valiant only two years after First Contact.
