- 5 April:
- Zefram Cochrane launches the Phoenix, mankind's first warp-capable ship, from a remote location in the continental United States. Its brief warp flight is detected by a Vulcan survey ship, the T'Plana-Hath, passing through the local sector, and the ship diverts course to investigate. This leads to the historic first contact between Humans and extraterrestrial life (of public record, as earlier unofficial contacts had been made). Unknown until 2373 is the fact that a Borg ship had traveled back from the future in order to derail Cochrane's plans and destroy the Phoenix. The attempt was thwarted by the USS Enterprise-E and Cochrane. Also unknown was the fact that several Starfleet officers from the Enterprise-E, including Commanders William Riker and Geordi La Forge, assisted Cochrane and joined him on his inaugural flight. (Star Trek: First Contact)
- Debris from the Borg sphere that tried to destroy mankind's first warp-capable ship impacts on Earth near the North Pole. It remains undiscovered until 1 March 2153. (ENT: "Regeneration")
