Montana is a region on the North American continent on Earth.
During World War III, Montana was the location of several Titan V nuclear missile silos for the United States.
On April 5th, 2063, Zefram Cochrane launched the Phoenix, mankind's first Warp capable space ship, from a missile complex near Bozeman in central Montana, which led to Humanity's first contact with an alien species, the Vulcans.
Later a statue would be erected of Dr. Cochrane near this spot, of him pointing to the sky, looking to the future.
During the Refuge area, Bozeman served as a refugee camp for members of many species.
