Happy First Contact Day!

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. The 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.
