47 years today, Vulcan’s will make first contact with humanity. April 5th 2063 is when Zefram Cochrane will make his first warp flight in his ship the Phoenix. The Vulcan survey ship, the T’Plana-Hath, detects his warp signature. The Vulcan’s alter course and head for Bozeman, central Montana, where they meet with the Phoenix’s designer and pilot, Zefram Cochrane.
Justin Lin celebrated First Contact Day today by posting a photo of his first day on the set of Star Trek Beyond. Lin also has set up a fun contest to identify the two actors with him.
To celebrate the moment when Humans and Vulcans made first contact (April 5, 2063), thought I’d share a photo from the first day of the STAR TREK BEYOND shoot. Here I am hanging with two of my favorite people to ever work with.
And just for fun, I’ll send the first person who correctly guesses the identities of these two actors an official STB crew t-shirt and signed STB poster.
And a small note—because the shirt contains spoilers for the film and the poster hasn’t been finalized yet, I won’t be able to send it out until closer to the STB release date this July, but rest assured you’ll get it as soon as possible.
I know this will probably be a tough one since the casting of these two actors hasn’t been announced yet and you won’t find them listed on IMDb. So here’s a hint–I’ve worked with them both before STB. Good luck.
