The Phoenix was an Earth spaceship used in the 21st century. She was the first Earth-made manned space craft to achieve warp drive. She is remembered as the ship that instigated the First Contact with Vulcans.
Dr. Zefram Cochrane, the inventor of warp drive, built this warp ship inside a missile complex in Bozeman, Montana. The ship was initially a United States Air Force nuclear missile with a titanium casing. It took Lily Sloane six months to scrounge enough titanium to build the four-meter cockpit of the Phoenix. Dr. Cochrane was the pilot, and Lily Sloane was initially intended to be one of the co-pilots. William Riker and Geordi La Forge (both of the USS Enterprise-E, from 2373), however, served as the crew.
