Happy First Contact Day!

From all of us here at TrekNews.net, we’d like to wish you a happy First Contact Day.

Today, we honor the future flight of Dr. Zefram Cochrane, who in the Star Trek universe, will break the warp barrier on April 5, 2063. That achievement will prompt the Vulcans to make first contact with the human race.

Only 47 years to go!
