Zefram Cochrane makes first contact

Humans make official contact with an alien species for the first time on April 5, 2063.

First Contact Day was a holiday celebrated to honor both the warp 1 flight of the Phoenix and first open contact between Humans and Vulcans on April 5, 2063 in Bozeman, Montana.

On Earth, children were given a day off from school, a fact that Captain Kathryn Janeway remembered was really the only way it was celebrated.

Naomi Wildman and Neelix planned the 2378 observation of the event aboard USS Voyager. The festivities included Zefram Cochrane's favorite food, cheese pierogies, and rock and roll music on Tom Paris's jukebox. At Neelix's insistence, Tuvok gave the Vulcan salute while reciting the greeting given by the Vulcans during first contact, "Live long and prosper." He did not see the point of it, but everyone in attendance applauded. (Star Trek: First Contact; VOY: "Homestead")
