Earth gangsters of the 20th century

A gangster was a criminal who was a member of a gang, or who participated in organized crime. The term could also be applied to characters who fit the stereotypical image of a gangster, such as the character who appeared in the holodeck of the starship USS Enterprise-D in 2370. (TNG: "Emergence")

Bugsy Siegel, an early 20th century gangster, was often credited for "building" Las Vegas and starting the hotel/casino industry that later boomed there throughout the latter half of the century. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

Aliens acted as gangsters in 2268 on the planet Sigma Iotia II, basing their entire culture on a book called Chicago Mobs of the Twenties, which had been left behind by the Earth vessel Horizon. (TOS: "A Piece of the Action")

In the holodeck of the Enterprise-D, Jean-Luc Picard enjoyed participating in simulations which were adapted from stories by Tracy Tormé. These tales included characters such as Dixon Hill, Rex, and Nicky the Nose. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye", "Manhunt"; Star Trek: First Contact)

In 2375, several gangsters appeared in the Vic Fontaine holoprogram, as a result of a jack-in-the-box becoming active. Added to the program by Vic's creator, Felix, this subroutine caused the characters of Frankie Eyes, Tony Cicci, and Carl Zeemo to appear. These gangsters fired Vic from his lounge, although the crew of Deep Space 9 later helped Vic to regain his position and put an end to the "jack-in-the-box". (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

In an alternate version of 1944, gangsters fought as resistance fighters when America was occupied by Germans. Two of these gangsters, named Sal and Carmine, helped Jonathan Archer defeat the Nazi and Na'kuhl alliance and restore the timeline. (ENT: "Storm Front")
