Iowa is a region of the North American continent on the planet Earth, with boundaries that were created as the area was settled as a geopolitical subdivision of the United States of America nation.

History

Iowa is located in the north central area of the United States. The eastern border of Iowa was the Mississippi River, and the western border was in part comprised of the Missouri River.

Iowa was the home of the Kirk family. Captain James T. Kirk was originally from Iowa, having been born in the town of Riverside on 2 March 2233 (TOS novels: Final Frontier, Spectre; TOS movie: The Voyage Home; TOS comic: "The Ashes of Eden")

Craig Kirk was visiting relatives in Iowa when his mother and father were killed by neural parasites on Deneva. Following the incident Craig decided to stay in Iowa where he worked as an engineer and lived on a farm. He had a family; a daughter, and a son - Sinjin Kirk. (TNG video game: Away Team)

The Federation starships USS Iowa and the Iowa-class of vessels were named for this state.

Alternate universes

In one alternate timeline, George Kirk's family had remained in Iowa rather than settling on Deneva. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
