Russia was a country on Earth, which had spanned a large area of Europe and Asia. Along with the United States of America, it bordered directly against the International Date Line.


In 1917, the ruler of the country, the tsar, was overthrown and replaced by a communist government under Vladimir Lenin. Russia was a communist state until the dissolution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991. (ENT: "Storm Front"; VOY: "Future's End, Part II")

In an alternate timeline, Vladimir Lenin was assassinated in 1916. As a result, the Communist revolution never took place. The Nazi invasion of the country in World War II was more successful than in the original timeline, succeeding in reaching and overrunning Moscow. Following the Nazi invasion of the United States in the early 1940s and rapid advancement of German forces deep into American territory by 1944, many Germans felt that they were advancing too far too quickly, which led to many setbacks in other German campaigns, including the Russians' attempts to retake Moscow. (ENT: "Storm Front")

Pavel Chekov was born in Russia in 2245. Irina Galliulin, with whom Chekov was romantically involved, was also of Russian descent. In early 2375, Worf and Miles O'Brien talked about Worf's childhood in Russia. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?", "The Way to Eden"; DS9: "Image in the Sand")
