One of the few affected parts of Mexico DF during the 1985 earthquake. Mexico City suffered major damage. The event caused between three and four billion USD in damage as 412 buildings collapsed and another 3,124 were seriously damaged in the city.

Star Trek, a pre-Doomsday science fiction TV series that had widespread popularity in the 1970s and early 1980s, has enjoyed a revival in both the United States and the Virginia/Kentucky alliance. At least two theatrical productions, Star Trek: The Voyage Continues and Star Trek: Year Four, are currently on tour in both nations and have received largely positive reviews. The former takes place after the events of the last Star Trek feature film, Star Trek II, while the latter is set during an imagined fourth season of the original series. In addition to these, fan-made novels and comic books have also been published, with the most popular being a series set in a post-Doomsday world where humanity manages to make first contact with the Vulcans after the Enterprise crew goes back in time to prevent the Klingons from interfering with Zefram Cochrane's historic flight aboard a pre-Doomsday missile.
