The New World is one of the names used for the non-Eurasian/non-African parts of the planet Earth, specifically the Americas and Australasia. When the term originated in the late 15th century, the Americas were new to the Europeans, who previously thought of the world as consisting only of Europe, Asia, and Africa (collectively, the Old World).

After Earth Starfleet Captain Erika Hernandez and other Columbia officers stuck on the Caeliar city-ship of Axion were thrown back in time to 1519, Hernandez thought of Hernán Cortés during her exile and his expedition introducing the New World to influenza. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals)
