This week began with First Contact Day, and that dominated most of the Star Trek tweets, with many fans sharing memories of their first time watching any one of the series. I’ve already shared those tweets this morning, but I also wanted to highlight some tweets from fans who included the #Spock hashtag to show both their love of the franchise and their love of the Vulcan. After all, it was the Vulcans who first made the trip to Bozeman, Montana and got this whole contact thing started.
When asked by @Startrek to share a memory for when they first connected with the series, @KumuthaLane shared a beautiful picture of herself wearing a Star Trek t-shirt and said:
"I love today for so many reasons! Star Trek was my first sci-fi show I fell in love with in 4th grade. Spock is my favorite character. It’s also my birthday so that’s pretty cool date for a Trekkie#StarTrek #FirstContactDay #FirstContact #Spock"
Happy Belated Birthday, Kumutha!
Art of Kevin Hinkle (@MrHinkleDraws) shared a sketch of the original Spock that he drew last year. This is some pretty serious talent.
"Apparently it’s @StarTrek #FirstContactDay? So here’s a quick sketch of #Spock from the original television series, drawn while live-streaming with @Matt__Elderback in 2020. Live long and prosper! #MrHinkleDraws #Art #StarTrekUnitedGives"
Meanwhile @ericrounds couldn’t wait to show off the t-shirt someone (he didn’t know who) had sent him. He called it his new nightgown, and I can’t say that I blame him. I do wonder where this t-shirt came from. It’s definitely something Spock fans would love!
And check out the fabulous cosplay pictures @C0C0cosplay shared! Along with the pictures, she also shared the reminder for everyone to keep social distancing so we can live long and prosper. That was pretty cool!
And Medicare Strategist David Little whose handle is @medicaredave reminded us of a beautiful quote by Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy. This could not be a more truer quote.
And once again, we wrap up another week of Star Trek tweets, which was a busy, busy week thanks to First Contact Day. It’s a day to celebrate that we look forward to all year long. A day to think about what might some day come true. Can you imagine what the celebration is going to be like when April 5, 2063 actually arrives on our calendar?
