On this day 42 days in the future the official first contact between the Humans and Vulcans occurred in Bozeman, Montana. The impetus of this event was the first warp 1 flight of the Phoenix, a converted nuclear missile by Dr. Zefram Cochrane that drew the passing Vulcan Survey ship, T’Plana-Hath. Ever since the date has been a holiday in on Earth and its colonies and children get the date off school.
Here at the AFKTavern.com, we are kicking off a month of Star Trek with First Contact Day. Enjoy our Star Trek content as we celebrate 55 years of Star Trek this month.
