I am a few days late, but hope everyone had a Happy First Contact Day and help spread the message of peace and unification. 😉
50 years today, Vulcan’s will make first contact with humanity. April 5th 2063 is when Zefram Cochrane will make his first warp flight in his ship the Phoenix. when a Vulcan survey ship, the T’Plana-Hath, detects his warp signature. The Vulcan’s alter course and head for Bozeman, central Montana, where they meet with the Phoenix’s designer and pilot, Zefram Cochrane.
“Don’t try to be a great man…just be a man. And let history make it’s own judgments.” – Zefram Cochrane
This would be the start of a whole new era for humanity, eventually paving the way for a unified world government and, later the birth of the United Federation of Planets.
