Warp Drive Anniversary

April 5, 2063. Mankind's First Contact and the introduction of Warp Drive occur on this date. Zefram Cochrane is the inventor and "captain" of the first warp capable ship. His first contact with the Vulcans launching from Bozeman Montana, make interstellar history and influence Mankind's history from this day forward. In the centuries that follow, school children are required to memorize this important date in history, and the launch site becomes a shrine visited by many - a statue of Cochrane is one of the attractions.

Just so you know.

I'll only be 101 when that day comes, so hopefully if I have the required $20 million I can get a ride aboard the Phoenix.

If Riker doesn't come along and bump me.
