Happy First Contact Day!

Although I am wishing it a bit belatedly.  

For those of you who don't know, in the Star Trek universe today, April 5th, in the year 2063, Zefram Cochrane will make the the first warp flight in space by humans which will help initiate the first contact with aliens.  So in 54 years we'll meet Vulcans if all goes according to plan.  Of course, this will be after a devastating World War Three... maybe we don't want to follow that timeline.

My senior project that involved a pool (and hence no time to myself whatsoever) is over, so I should be able to post more often these days.  There's a lot to look forward to in my life, including the next Star Trek movie on May 8th.  I'm less cautious about it than before.  I'm giving it a good chance.  Let's hope it all goes well.  Hooray Trek!


  1. Wouldn't is be creepy if everything did go according to the timeline, though instead of the federation we actually founded the Terran Empire like in the Star Trek mirror universe?

    A basketball pool maybe? ;-)

  4. Ha I wish. Nope, a real honest to God swimming pool with water and the works.
