The 2370s decade covers the period from 2370-2379.

In this decade, the United Federation of Planets continued their exploration of the Gamma Quadrant by way of the Bajoran wormhole, discovered in 2369. By the end of 2370, the powers of the Alpha Quadrant had been forced into a cold war with the Dominion, a major political entity in the Gamma Quadrant, that would continue until 2373. This cold war would degenerate into open hostilities by the end of that year, and continue until 2375. The war turned out to be one of the bloodiest interstellar conflicts in galactic history, leaving the Klingon Empire set back by nearly a decade and over 800 million Cardassian civilians slaughtered at the hands of their former Dominion allies during the final battle of the conflict. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)

Hostilities with the Borg Collective was also a major concern throughout the decade. A second attempt to assimilate Earth in 2373 left Starfleet forces stretched relatively thin for months, a fact that was a source of concern when the Federation realized that the Dominion were planning to invade the Alpha Quadrant. (Star Trek: First Contact, DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow")

Additionally, the Federation began its first exploration of the Delta Quadrant in 2371, when the USS Voyager was transported there by an entity called the Caretaker. In addition to collecting a multitude of data on the Delta Quadrant that would keep Federation scientists occupied for decades, Captain Kathryn Janeway and her crew made more first contacts with alien species since the era of James T. Kirk and the original USS Enterprise. On the final leg of their journey, the Voyager crew managed to deal near-catastrophic damage to the Borg Collective, however it remains unknown if the Borg were able to recover. (Star Trek: Voyager)
