- There is no canonical date for when the New United Nations was founded. Some continuities affirm that the "old" U.N. had dissolved during the Eugenics Wars but that this successor organization had been established not long after the wars were over. (Star Trek: Avenger: "The Essential Process") Others, such as Star Trek: Liberty, suggest that the establishment of the New United Nations had been established sometime after 2015. (Star Trek: Liberty: "King of the Dead")
- It's possible that some international alliances using at least the name United Nations existed as late as the Earth-Romulan War, as there were Earth ships in that conflict with a UNSS designation. (FASA RPG: The Romulan War)
Alternate continuities[edit | edit source]
The nations of the Eastern Coalition, most of whom had previously left (or even declined to join) the New United Nations, formed ECON in the 2040s because, to quote Li Qan, "We are not going to win the conflicts in a New U.N. that we lost in the old one." (Star Trek: Shadowstar: "Renée")
The United Nations disbanded in 2001, due to turmoil over the role of the organization's response to the Korean Peninsula Crisis as well as its being over-extended in humanitarian crises. (Star Fleet Starship Recognition Manual: Report: Aphrodite Mission Spacecraft). The New United Nations would be established in 2011.
