|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly.

First Contact is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the eighty-ninth episode overall.
When Commander Riker is injured during a first contact misison on Malcor 3, his cover is blown and he is exposed as an alien.
Unable to find Riker, Picard must proceed with First Contact. His first contact is a warp scientist, Mirasta Yale. She convinces Picard to keep Riker's existence on the planet a secret from the government.
Behind the Scenes
Allusions and References
A Malcorian day apprently has 29 "hours".
One of the most memorable moments in this episode comes when Riker is trying to escape from the hospital where he is kept under heavy guard. Lanel, presumably a nurse, offers to create a distraction, but only if he will make love to her ... because she has "always wanted to make love to an alien".
Riker: Now, will you help me?
Nurse Lanel: If you make love to me? [...] I've always wanted to make love to an alien.
