  • Columbus was born in Genoa. His origins are not a subject of debate amongst serious historians, though especially among amateur historians there is the occasional alternative origin theory. Some have pointed out he may have been Jewish, escaping the inquisition that engulfed Spain after the expulsion of the Moors. No evidence for this theory exist however. In fact, since Columbus had plenty of enemies, sooner or later one of them would have pointed out his Jewishness. Though during his lifetime he was accused of a lot of things, being Jewish was not one of them. Others have suggested he may have had Portuguese, Galician, French, Armenian or Greek origins. Coincidentally the proponents of those theories are Portuguese, Galician, French, Armenian and Greek, respectively.
  • Christopher Columbus was a famed Genoese navigator and explorer who sailed for Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries. According to Sybok, he proved his world was round rather then flat. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier) Nora, a friend of Travis Mayweather's who resided on the ECS Horizon, compared Mayweather to Columbus and Magellan after he explained to her that the exploration feats he participated in aboard the Enterprise, which included having traveled 150 light years and visiting twenty-two inhabited worlds in an eighteen-month period.

  • Christopher Columbus (circa 1451 – May 20, 1506) was a human originally from Genoa, Italy on Earth who lived during the 15th and 16th centuries. An explorer, Columbus led an expedition for the Spanish which led to the Europeans discovering new lands across the Atlantic Ocean. Captain Benjamin Sisko felt that the Cardassian people held the High Gul of the Crescent Order in the same light as humans held Columbus and George Washington in. (DS9 novel: Station Rage)
  • A famous historical figure, known as the sailor who wanted to find an easier trade route from Europe to Asia (NOT to prove the Earth was round, contrary to popular belief) only to discover the Americas during his travels. For his legacy, he was not the first European to discover the Americas , but he did leave a legacy that was worse for the American indigenous natives. In 1492, hurting for cash after defeating Muslim Granada, Ferdinand and Isabella decided to give him what he wanted (although Isabella initially turned him down). Most likely, Ferdinand didn't think he'd come back.
  • Christopher Columbus (Italian: Cristoforo Colombo, Spanish: Cristóbal Colón) (30 or 31 October 1451 - 20 May 1506) was an Italian sailor in the 15th century. Believing the Earth was smaller than it actually is, he mistakenly thought Asia could easily be reached by travelling west. He submitted a proposal for a journey to India by sailing west across the Atlantic Ocean to several European monarchs and ultimately received approval, funding, and three ships from King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain. He did not find India (though he initially thought he did) but instead became the first European to reach the New World and establish a lasting presence. He returned on several subsequent journeys and became the first governor of Spanish colonies established there.

  • Christopher Columbus was a famed Genoese navigator and explorer who sailed for Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries. According to Sybok, he proved his world was round rather then flat. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier) Nora, a friend of Travis Mayweather's who resided on the ECS Horizon, compared Mayweather to Columbus and Magellan after he explained to her that the exploration feats he participated in aboard the Enterprise, which included having traveled 150 light years and visiting twenty-two inhabited worlds in an eighteen-month period. (ENT: "Horizon") Columbus' legacy was honored well into the 23rd century as the name of a Federation shuttlecraft assigned aboard the USS Enterprise and USS Enterprise-A. (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon"; Star Trek V: The Final Frontier) Columbus' actual birth and death years, 1451 and 1506, were noted in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 154) .

  • A famous historical figure, known as the sailor who wanted to find an easier trade route from Europe to Asia (NOT to prove the Earth was round, contrary to popular belief) only to discover the Americas during his travels. For his legacy, he was not the first European to discover the Americas , but he did leave a legacy that was worse for the American indigenous natives. On his most famous voyage, the 1492 trans-atlantic trip in the ships Niña, Pinta, and Santa Maria, he was searching for a route to "India," which at the time meant Asia -- specifically, he was hoping to find Japan. When he finally reached land, all he could tell was that the natives were neither Japanese nor Chinese, and so he was at a loss to figure out where he really was. Figuring he'd landed on some previously-unknown part of Asia, he referred to the natives generically as "Indians," and the island chain as the "East Indies." (Today, we've corrected this second mistake, and refer to these islands as the West Indies.) Even at the end of his life, he never learned that he'd discovered an entirely new continent. Nobody today is sure what he looked like; the picture here, painted after his death by someone who never met him, shouldn't be taken as fact. For one, he had auburn hair in his youth which would have turned white by the time he was the age depicted. Columbus was (most likely) Genoese. He and his brother Bartholomew together conceived of an "enterprise of the Indies," a way to sail directly to the Orient without having to go through the Turkish-controlled land route or the very long route beyond Africa. Columbus, a relatively inexperienced sailor, argued that the world was smaller than what common scholarship held, and that Japan was very, very far east of China, which was in turn very, very far east of where it actually was. He was right on one count, though, that the "Easterly" winds off the coast of Africa could propel a sailing ship a great distance in relatively little time. He went to Portugal in 1485 and presented his plan, along with a demand that he be made "Great Admiral of the Ocean," appointed governor of any lands he discovered, and received 10% of revenue derived from anything he found. The Portuguese flatly rejected his proposal, and the English simultaneously rejected a similar proposal made by his brother. Then Christopher went to the Spanish, who held a similar opinion but decided to keep him around by paying him not to go anywhere else. This was in 1489. In 1492, hurting for cash after defeating Muslim Granada, Ferdinand and Isabella decided to give him what he wanted (although Isabella initially turned him down). Most likely, Ferdinand didn't think he'd come back. Many historians have attributed Columbus for the European colonization of the Americas, which involves many Europeans battling each other for colonies and land in the New World, looting and destroying many tribes for gold and valuable resources, massacres of populations to take their land, and forced destruction of native cultures. Although obviously, how many Europeans approached the New World and the Native American tribes varied . Columbus's descendants hold the Spanish noble title Duke of Veragua, and the hereditary title of "Admiral of the Ocean Sea." Both the current Duke and his father were named Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus) and the father was actually a naval officer, which means he was an Admiral even when he was a Lieutenant.

Coincidentally the proponents of those theories are Portuguese, Galician, French, Armenian and Greek, respectively. A variant of the conjecture that Columbus might have been a Jew fleeing the inquisition is the theory that some of his crew were crypto-Jews and crypto-Muslims fleeing the inquisition. There is little evidence for this, and there are decrees from the royal family that noble persons with Jewish or Muslim pre-Reconquista ancestors could not be conquistadors in the New World. Nonetheless, there were indeed crypto-Jewish conquistadors at least in Mexico, who became conquistadors in order to secretly practice their faith far away from Iberia. As the inquisition applied to the New World, whenever these conquistadors' secret faith was discovered, they were executed.
