Any excuse to have a noisy wild party.

It's what Zephram would want.

I seriously doubt I'll be around then to celebrate with you guys (since I'd be 112), so I'll start celebrating now.

And when SETI still hasn't received an alien signal? When NASA still hasn't confirmed an inhabited planet in the Galaxy, with its mighty telescopes? Then what? Will a STAR TREK author be summoned to right the wrong with yet another government cover-up story? What - oh, what - are we gonna do?!?!?!

The Vulcans probably quarantined our system after all of the shenanigans of the 40's and 50's. Earth attracted attention from outside with all of the radio traffic blasting into space beginning in the 20's and 30's. And then WW2 turned us into a tourist destination with so much warfare to see from above. Amphibious landings here, major naval engagement there, huge tank battles out in the desert, major urban warfare in many large cities. Then with radioactivity being detected around the globe. The interstelar betting began on who would get nuked first and when the planet woulkd destroy itself. Then in the 50's our audience got bored and started interfering, hoping to move things along. With all of the UFO sightings and the carelessness at Roswell. The Vulcans said enough and made us off limits except for passive scientific study missions.
Maybe nobody is answering our calls because they are letting the call go to voicemail. "Caller ID says it's those creepy humans calling again."
