New Mexico was a region of the nation-state United States of America, on Earth's North American continent.

Prior to becoming part of the United States, New Mexico was part of the Spanish Empire and the home of many Native American tribes. In the 1680s, it was the primary location of the Pueblo Revolt. Ten years later, the area was reconquered by Spain and hundreds of Native Americans were killed. One of the soldiers who suppressed the revolt was Javier Maribona-Picard, a distant ancestor of Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard. (TNG: "Journey's End")
