The Enterprise (NX-01) over the Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf of Mexico is the ninth largest body of water on Earth. An ocean basin, the Gulf of Mexico is bordered by the United States of America to the north, Mexico to the west and southwest, and the south by Cuba. The Gulf is connected to the Atlantic Ocean by the Florida straits between Florida and Cuba, and the Yucatan Channel between Mexico and Cuba.

A number of important settlements were created on the Gulf. This included the city of New Orleans, a major seaport on the Gulf since its creation in the early 18th century. Earth Starfleet officer Charles Tucker III was born and raised in Panama City, Florida, which is on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
