Wescott served at least two terms, from 2261 to 2269, and thus was in office during much of the Klingon Cold War of the 2260s, until he signed the Organian Peace Treaty in 2267 to end the conflict. Despite popular support, he refused to run for another term in 2268, and was followed by President Lorne McLaren. (TOS novels: Errand of Fury, Seeds of Rage)
- That President Wescott served two terms is based upon reference to the president's 2264 re-election campaign in the VAN novel: Harbinger and annotations by David Mack.
