Time to dance to "Ooby Dooby", down shots to tequila and binge on cheese peirogies.

I still say that we are, in fact, living in the Mirror Universe, and when the Vulcans show up in 49 years we're going to murder the shit out of them.

Re: Happy FIRST CONTACT Day!!

I wonder how, or even if, fan opinions would change about STAR TREK, if alien contact was made at any time. Would the show suddenly appear hokey in comparison to the reality of whatever transpires? Indeed, would all of sci-fi seem suddenly rediculous? What aliens look or act like, I wouldn't hazard a guess. But if nothing else changed, sci-fi very probably would. Some would say "religion, too" but I don't really buy into that, myself, personally ...

There's the optimism and hope that I think the OP meant to suggest!!! If we can work in a little latitude here, couldn't our welcoming party use something a bit more ostentatious or exciting than that old humdrum sawed off? How about a contemporary Streetsweeper, a well preserved MP5, or even an honest to goodness primitive laser? Hell, the Robinsons had 'em over 60 years earlier!!!

Happy Future Canon Violation Day!

However we did have canon violation already, since the Eugenic Wars never took place and no one sent up Khan & Co. with the Botany Bay in 1996 ... right??

You missed that? The newly launched MSNBC was the only network that carried the entire thing, including the launch. Unfortunately, only 17 people were watching at the time.

Have you hugged your Vulcan yet today?
Speaking for Vulcans in general, I think we would prefer not to be hugged by more-emotional species.
A simple, intergalactic hand-sign of acknowledgement and appreciation should suffice.
But, First Contact Day is an historical event of considerable significance throughout the Quadrant, since it led eventually to the founding of the Federation.
Live long, and prosper, my friends.

I endorse these statements. After all, they would both get a hearty from Ambassador Neelix. Hell, I'm sure he would even throw a catered party for the occasion.

Hmmm...CNN said it was a hoax, Al Jazeera America said it was a UFO, and FOX said the flash of light we saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus."
