Africa was a continent on Earth. This continent had coastlines on the North and South Atlantic Oceans, the Mediterranean, and the Indian Ocean. The equator, a line of latitude which divided the Earth into northern and southern hemispheres, ran through this continent. Northern Africa was where some of the Middle Eastern countries were located.

Background info Edit

According to an Original Series writer's guide, Uhura was born in 2239 in the "United States of Africa". However, no on-screen evidence for the existence of this political entity has ever been established.|The film's script of Star Trek explained that at the time of Kirk's corvette incident, his mother was in Africa.

Retroactive continuity: Several 20th century-era maps depicting Africa, or portions of it, were stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. These maps included a continent projections map, an eastern hemisphere map, a political map of the northern hemisphere, and a statistical map. These maps were among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")

Decades later, a Central Intelligence Agency map was used for the remastered "The Cage". This map was published either in April 2007[1] or September 2008.[2] The difference, which was not noticeable at the resolution of the image from the episode, was the addition of Kosovo, which gained its independence between the releases.
