Did I know about this? I must have known about this. I don’t think I knew this, but it’s freakin’ nerd-vana whether I knew it or not.
As mentioned previously today is the anniversary of the first date my wife and I went on. Dinner in Lowell next door to the movie theater, and then a drive across town to the old Brew House where we just hung out for a long time.
April 5, 2007. A landmark day in my life.
In Star Trek world, April 5th is also the anniversary of the first human traveling faster than light AND the first human contact with an alien race. They made a movie about it. It was one of the really good ones.
In Star Trek fandom day is referred to as First Contact Day.
Our First Dateiversary is on First Contact Day. Holy shit snacks that is fitting! Granted, it was our first contact in person. We’d been chatting on line for a few months prior to actually going on a date, but let’s not worry about the semantics, our First Contact was on First Contact Day and oh my goodness gracious that it all kinds of awesome!
