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 be detected by a Vulcan survey ship, the T’Plana-Hath, and prompt its crew to touch down in Bozeman, Montana and make first contact with the human race.

Only 46 years to go!

Last year, Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin celebrated First Contact Day by sharing a photo from the set of the film.
