I'll be honest with you, I don't like bats, especially flying fox bats. But as 17th April arrived, and bats emerge from hibernation, we should all take our time and learn fun facts and appreciate them. After all, what do you prefer, a world full of mosquitos or some bats you don't really see?

"Vulcan: Live long and prosper. Dr. Zefram Cochrane: Thanks." ~ Star Trek: First Contact    So how and why is April 5th the First Contact Day? Well, the answer comes from co-writer, Ronald D. Moore: "The short answer on First Contact Day is that it's my oldest son, Jonathan's birthday, and that's the only reason the date was chosen.”    History of Star Trek First Contact Day Even if it's a relatively minor holiday, Strat Trek fans know how important this day is.
