Today is the 22nd of November 2016, 20 years to the day since the US release of First Contact, or Star Trek VIII. In my opinion this was the pinnacle event in the best year (30!) of Trek. A beautiful new ship, a bolder and more matured vision of the TNG cast as well as new uniforms for Starfleet personnel, which would carry over to the two concurrently running series', DS9 and Voyager. It was an exciting time to be alive for a Trek fan. My anniversary won't come until the 28th November, Australia's release date.
