Celebrate ‘Star Trek: First Contact’ day with this lavish new coffee-table book

Happy First Contact Day, that annual Trekkie holiday that marks the fictional occasion when the Roy Orbison-loving scientist Zefram Cochrane makes his historic Warp 1 flight aboard the Phoenix rocket ship to initiate first contact with the Vulcan race near Boseman, Montana. And what better way to celebrate than with the new Star Trek First Contact coffee table book which has just been unveiled by Titan Books.

That pivotal date in “Star Trek” lore, April 5, 2063, becomes a turning point for all Mankind as it unites the planet in ways which, before this unexpected encounter, might have seemed impossible, with irrefutable confirmation that benevolent alien life exists elsewhere. 

These momentous times are depicted in the hit 1996 film “Star Trek: First Contact,” one of the finest entries in Hollywood’s 43-year roster of Trek movies – you can see them all in our guide to the Star Trek movies in order.

We’re huge fans of First Contact, in fact we put it at the number three spot in our Star Trek movies ranked list. More than any other movie from the TNG era, it shows a deep love for Star Trek lore and characters thanks to the direction of Jonathan Frakes, who also plays Commander William Riker.
