First Contacts in Star Trek

Rick and Todd discuss first contacts in Star Trek. The first contact of Vulcans coming to Earth and first contacts of Federation humans with other species in the galaxy.

What different reactions do species have at contact? What kinds of challenges might arise from differences in language and ways of perceiving reality?
