Happy First Contact Day! Only 50 More Years Til We Meet The Vulcans
  |  @   |  

Happy First Contact Day, everyone! In only 50 short years, we’ll finally make first contact on this day, according to the Star Trek universe.

April 5, 2063 marks the day when the human race makes “first contact” with an alien race, namely The Vulcans. The historic meeting comes right after Dr. Zefram Cochrane pilots his ship the Phoenix and successfully achieves warp flight for the first time. The pilot of the Vulcan ship T’Plana Hath traces the warp signature back to Earth and lands right at the Phoenix launch site where he greets Dr. Cochrane with the Vulcan Salute. These events are depicted in the Star Trek: The Next Generation feature film, Star Trek: First Contact.

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 $34.99.

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

Also, in honor of this special day, the official Star Trek Store is running a sale until 2pm PST today where you can get 20% off your order – just enter the promo code VULCAN at checkout. (I think today’s the day I snag that Star Trek Starfleet Academy Zefram Tote Bag, which comes out to only $12 with the discount!)

Live long and prosper! \\//
