Chicago is a large city on Earth, located in the United States of America. The city is located in the northeast corner of the state of Illinois, and sits next to Lake Michigan.

During the early part of the 1920s, organized crime became a powerful fixture in the city of Chicago, to the point that conventional city government nearly fell apart. In the early 1990s, Pocket Books published a book titled Chicago Mobs of the Twenties, detailing the history of the Mob during that time period. A copy of the book later was left on the planet Sigma Iotia II by the Earth ship USS Horizon. The Iotians saw the society depicted in the book as a perfect society, and rebuilt their society along those lines. (TOS episode: "A Piece of the Action").

Rianna Mayweather, chief engineer of the ECS Horizon, was a native of Chicago. She owned a history book about that city, which was one of her prized possessions. (ENT novel: Kobayashi Maru)

In 2251, James T. Kirk incorrectly guessed that Gary Mitchell was either from Chicago or Detroit. Although he was wrong on both counts, as Mitchell was born and raised in New York City. (TOS novel: My Brother's Keeper: "Republic").

In 2374, Benjamin Sisko was surprised to learn that the Captain's Table served Chicago-style pepperoni pizza. (DS9 novel: The Mist)

The Federation starships USS Chicago were named for this city.

Mirror universe

In the mirror universe, Chicago was one of the cities devastated in a brazen attack by alien rebels against the Terran Empire in 2155. Empress Sato I visited Chicago following the attacks, where she was surprised to find the citizens' anger directed at her. (ENT novel: Age of the Empress)

Chicago the Lion, with Wanda Cousteau dressed as broccoli.

Ed Christie • (designer/builder)

Chicago is a vegetarian lion, who appeared on Sesame Street beginning in 1990. Chicago loves to eat vegetables so much that he even loves to play fun chasing games with kids where he has kids dress up as a vegetable and tries to catch them, especially as a broccoli since broccoli is Chicago's favorite vegetable.

Although he was dropped as a major character in 1997, he still popped up occasionally from Season 33 onward.

In episode 3161, fish explorer Wanda Cousteau dresses up as broccoli in order to hide from the fish-hungry Wolfgang the Seal. Fooled by Wanda's costume, Chicago chases Wanda.

Chicago was also seen at the end of a Play With Me Sesame skit in which Super Grover comes in to save the day at the wrong time, mistaking the pretend noises the viewer makes for the real thing.

Chicago before the War

Chicago after the War

The once great city of Chicago, Illinois was nearly completely destroyed in the Great War. The few that survived the bombs now live mostly in small tribal villages in the area of the former city. Examples of such villages are Dirt Haven and Brahmin Wood and raider camps, like Devil's Graveyard.

Some time after the defeat of the Master in 2162, the Brotherhood of Steel constructed airships and dispatched some of its soldiers East, to track down and assess the extent of the remaining super mutant threat. However, a great storm broke the main airship and flung it far from its course. The mighty airship was badly damaged. The smaller sections were torn from the main craft and were never to be seen again. Many of the expedition leaders, including Paladin Latham, were lost to the winds. The fraction of the crew that still survived, struggled to keep their ship aloft before finally crashing on the outskirts of the ruins of Chicago. The survivors eventually formed an organization called the Midwestern Brotherhood, which diverged greatly from the ideals of the old Brotherhood. In time, they established a harsh rule over the towns and villages in that area, controlled from the Brotherhood Bunker Alpha.

The Greater Chicago Industrial Zone (often referred to simply as "The Zone") is a Human city on Earth, located on the continent of North America near Lake Michigan. An outgrowth of the modern-day American city of Chicago, the Zone is a vast urban sprawl covering large parts of the "former" states of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.[1] The Great Lakes Spaceport is located nearby.

While physically located in the United States, the Zone is a de-facto independent city-state, with its citizens feeling more loyalty to it and, to a lesser extent, the United Nations than to the US government. This loss of national identity was a natural consequence of human colonization of other planets and systems.

The Zone was the hometown of Avery Junior Johnson.

Chicago was a large city located in the state of Illinois in the Earth nation-state the United States of America. It was located on the southwestern edge of Lake Michigan. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Chicago was considered a "well-rounded global city".[1]

The Jackson Center for Archaeology was located in Chicago. (Star Trek: Pendragon)

Scott Fack was born near Chicago in 1974. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "White Flag")

In the Pendragon timeline, Chicago was hit by one or more nuclear devices in a nuclear exchange during World War III in 2053. (Star Trek: Pendragon)

It is unclear whether Chicago was hit the same way in the Cantabrian timeline, or if the city was reconstructed as a near replica sometime after the strike, as the skyline appeared very similar to the way Scott Fack remembered it in the 20th century. Fack may have been mistaken. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "White Flag")

Richard Boswell was born in Chicago in 2335. (Star Trek: Remington)

Sometime between 2355 and 2357, during a break from Starfleet Academy, Liam de Gaillimhe took Fack to Chicago for a holiday. During this time, they walked along the lakefront at night (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "White Flag").

Chicago had a Starfleet Medical facility in the downtown area. In 2366 and 2367, counselors Scott Fack, Richard Whitby, future USS Excelsior counselor Myra Elbrey, Rose Hamelin and several others helped keep the peace in the city during the Borg crisis. (Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child") These same counselors were some of the counseling staff dealing with survivors and the families of victims of the Battle of Wolf 359. Three patients included Benjamin Sisko, his son Jake, and Corey Aster, who lost his parents. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Dream a Little Dream of Me")

From at least 2366 until mid-2367, Fack lived in Chicago, with his then-husband Jason Athelstan, and worked for Starfleet Medical's Chicago branch as a counselor.(Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles: "The Burnt Child"; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Dream a Little Dream of Me")

There was an office of Starfleet Command located in Chicago. Commander-in-Chief Thomas Crowe was known to prefer his office in Chicago, as he liked the cold weather. (Star Trek: Remington)
