I'm not sure it's valid to use "first-contact drama" as a synonym for "UFO project." "UFO" implies mysterious ("unidentified") unearthly entities that are keeping hidden and avoiding contact. "First contact" generally refers more to the beginning of open or formal exchange between species. They're two rather different kinds of story. (Although one can transform into the other, as in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.)
