Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

The first spacecraft launched from Earth with a faster-than-light engine, the Phoenix was built by noted space pioneer Zefram Cochrane and engineer Lily Sloane from an old Titan V nuclear missile, modified with a small crew cabin and twin warp nacelles. The Phoenix made its first historic warp flight on 5 April 2063, and was piloted by Cochrane, symbolically rising from the ashes of World War III, ushering in a new era for humanity. The flight of the Phoenix was directly responsible for Earth's first contact with extraterrestrials, leading to Earth's recovery from the postatomic horror. The Phoenix was later placed on display at the Smithsonian Institute, and was featured in a mandatory course taught at Starfleet Academy on basic warp design.[1]
