And happy First Contact Day to you, too, Monster! I'm coincidentally spending the day with a Trekkie friend (one of my few Trekkie friends) from out of town.
Thank you Tora. I hope you two have a great time! Nothing like hanging out with a friend that likes Trek.

^We did. He's actually the fiancé of a good friend who's not a Trekkie. You should've seen the look on her face when I greeted him with, "Happy First Contact Day."

Well.. I'm fairly certain the Eugenics Wars never happened already...
Didn't Greg Cox come up with an explanation for that? I seem to remember something on a DVD extra somewhere...

Except I'm fairly certain they ended with that Khan guy flying off in a rocket ship in the 90's.

Re: HAPPY FIRST CONTACT DAY

Oh yeah.. well they HAPPENED behind the scenes. Just like that rocket launch which also happened behind the scenes.

It is, of course, a conspiracy.

I believe this novel series is what you're referring to.
