** The war between the Federation and Romulan Empire, which forms the backstory for the episode "Balance of Terror".
** The Earth-Romulan war. When first mentioned in the original series, this war was fought entirely at extreme ranges with nuclear weapons (and with neither race ever actually seeing a member of the other).
** The ongoing war between the Federation and the Klingons at the time of the Original Series is mostly not shown.

** ''Literature/AlienInASmallTown'' apparently experienced two of these, the Genomic War - which gave rise to a number of genetically engineered HumanSubspecies who have had varying degrees of success interacting peaceably with baseline humans in the years since - and the Android Uprising, about which we are given even fewer details, but the current society seems to believe that AndroidsArePeopleToo. The biggest effect of the Genomic War on the main story is that it apparently caused the Amish and Mennonites to have to evacuate their territories for a time, and when they finally returned, they were a little less closed minded than they had been, and a number of outsiders followed them, making them a much more ethnically diverse group than they had been.

Please, avoid shows referencing RealLife conflicts. We already have plenty amount of information on them.

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' has the War, a war between [[{{Precursors}} the Astrals]] and the rest of the Skydwellers, which happened millennia ago, causing the former to retreat to their home island and leaving behind dozens of their creations which still remain in the present.

* ''Series/TheLastShip'' has the Immune Wars. Season 2 [[DarkMessiah Sean Ramsey]] and his cult, who believe that their natural immunity to the [[ThePlague Red Flu]] is divine will and that they're therefore destined to rule the world, are established shortly after their introduction to have apparently taken over Europe. We never get a full explanation of this, nor what happened after Ramsey's defeat by the crew of the ''Nathan James'', though some details are revealed over time -- at the very least, Britain put up a fight, which all but wiped out the Royal Air Force in the process.
