Okay, this is embarassing as a Trekkie.
Forgot that April 5th is First Contact Day. On this day (in the fictional future), Zefram Cochrane launches the test ship, Phoenix, from Bozeman, Montana.
And was the first Earth ship capable of warp speed.
The test flight caught the attention of alien life, interested to see that humans had developed interstellar travel.
So they landed.
And proved to be the Vulcans.
And Earth had it's first contact.
And The Adventure Continues.
...Granted that leads to Insurrection. We don't talk about Insurrection.
HAPPY FIRST CONTACT DAY!
