Istanbul was a city on Earth located in the former nation-state of Turkey. Istanbul is an ancient city, which was previously known by a number of names, including Byzantium and Constantinople when it served as the capital of the Byzantine Empire.
In the 19th century, the city still bore the name of Constantinople, but the name had been changed to Istanbul by the early 20th century. While on an undercover mission on Romulus in 2379, Commander Tuvok likened this to the renaming of the capital city on Romulus from Dartha to Ki Baratan. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)
