First Contact is the event when the Human race first encountered an alien civilization.
On June 12th, 2438, explorer Vernon Tar was surveying the Davien System. He encountered a fugitive Banu ship. At first, he believe it was another surveyor traversing the system. Upon realizing his mistake, he sent his coordinates to the United Nations of Earth (UNE). In response, a diplomatic team lead by General Neal Socolovich arrived to lead the situation. The Banu Protectorate made formal contact two weeks later. The Interstellar Peace and Trade Accord was signed between the two races in October 2438.
