Star Trek First Contact Day

Happy First Contact Day, everyone!

Today, April 5, marks the day in the year 2063 in the Star Trek universe that the human race made first contact with an alien race. The event occurred after Dr. Zefram Cochrane successfully achieved warp flight in his ship the Phoenix while rockin’ to the sounds of Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride.” The pilot of the Vulcan ship T’Plana Hath traced the warp signature back to Earth and landed at the Phoenix launch site where he greeted Dr. Cochrane with the Vulcan Salute, thus history was made!

In the film Star Trek: First Contact, the Borg use time travel with the intent to prevent First Contact, so it’s up to the Next Generation crew to stop the Borg and also ensure that Cochrane makes his historic flight.

Check out the video here below from First Contact of the launch of the Phoenix, as well as Cochrane’s meeting with the Vulcan.

The official Star Trek Store has a bunch of merch commemorating First Contact that’s suitable for all year round! (The image here above is one of the t-shirt designs, which comes in other colors as well.) Also, FYI, if you’re a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan, the 4-movie Blu-ray box set — which includes the film First Contact (awesome movie!!!) — is on sale right now for only $35.99.

Live long and prosper! \\//
