BosWash was a megalopolis in North America (aka NorthAm) on Earth.

The name was derived from the fact that it spanned from Boston in the north to Washington, D.C. in the south.

Paul Meredith was born in BosWash in the early 23rd century. (Boldly Gone)

Megalopolises, as seen from Earth orbit, are often described but are not explicitly said to exist (as administrative/political entities) in pro Star Trek fiction (e.g., TOS novel: Spock's World). Individual cities are seen, or mentioned, in aired and film Trek, but not aggregate megalopolises.


The term BosWash was first coined by Herman Kahn in a 1967 essay about a theoretical United States megalopolis.
