  1. Individual was referred to while serving in a capacity other than President (a quote from one of his writings appears on a dedication plaque).
  2. Individual was referred to while serving in a capacity other than President (his previous service as a general in the Civil War).

Background Edit

Mount Rushmore 2287

Presidents' heads on Mount Rushmore from Star Trek V Special Edition DVD

Although the aired version of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier seems to imply that Sulu and Chekov are in Yosemite National Park with Captain Kirk and the others, a deleted part of that scene actually establishes that they are exploring Mt. Rushmore, which has by the 23rd century had the head of an African-American woman President added. The scene was never made a part of any cut of the film, though, so the addition to Mt. Rushmore is non-canon.

Some Star Trek books list that the United States still exists as a political subdivision of United Earth as late as the late 24th century, and is still led by a President.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine guest star Mary Kay Adams (Grilka) is a descendant of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
