Dawn of the Federation

Saturday 6th April 2013 is the 50th Pre-anniversary of first contact with the Vulcans. The event will take place at the National Space Centre, Leicester.

The First Contact took place on the evening of April 5, 2063, when a Vulcan survey ship, the T’Plana-Hath, having detected the warp signature of the Phoenix, touched down in Bozeman, central Montana, where they met with the Phoenix’s designer and pilot, Zefram Cochrane.

The USS Fortitude would like to see as many Star Trek fans in uniform/costume gathered on Saturday 6th April 2013.

This will be a unique opportunity for Trekkies and Trekkers to join together, have fun, meet with old friends and more importantly make First Contact with new ones.
