  • Unidentified Flying Object
rdfs:comment
  • Unidentified flying object, or called as UFO (ユーフォー Yūfō) in short, is a type of spaceship often used by aliens.
  • Alien defence organisations such as UNIT and the Torchwood Institute and insiders like Henry van Statten knew that many UFOs did, as suspected, come from planets other than Earth.
  • Several theories have been put forward to explain (or explain away) UFOs. The most well known is the Extra-terrestrial hypothesis, which holds that the objects and their occupants come from outer space. Despite various criticisms of this idea, is it so well-established that the hypothesis is almost a given when UFOs are discussed, especially outside the specialist literature.
  • Reports of unidentified aerial phenomena date back to ancient times, but modern reports and the first official investigations began during World War II with sightings of so-called foo fighters by Allied airplane crews, and in 1946 with widespread sightings of European "ghost rockets". UFO reports became even more common after the first widely publicized United States UFO sighting, by private pilot Kenneth Arnold in mid 1947. Hundreds of thousands of UFO reports have since been made worldwide.
  • Gary Seven has mitigated many UFO incidents to prevent a planetwide panic because of aliens visiting the planet. To accomplish the missions, he often had to disguise himself, other agents AS high ranking officers, and others who had access to highly classified matters, so as to mitigate the many UFO incidents that have been going on. (TOS novels: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1, The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)
  • A model of a flying saucer was kept on a desk in the office of Incredible Tales magazine. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars") In 2373, the USS Voyager was transported back to Earth of the year 1996 after encountering the timeship Aeon. Several systems were damaged in the trip to the past, including transporters. Voyager was required to make a close pass over the city of Los Angeles in an attempt to recover the Aeon, which had been stolen by computer tycoon Henry Starling. Natives of the time period recorded Voyager's appearance, and the ship was popularized as a UFO on several news programs. (VOY: "Future's End") The reports were later dismissed as hoaxes and delusions. (VOY: "Future's End, Part II")
  • Studies have established that only a small percentage of reported UFOs are actual hoaxes, while the majority are observations of some real but conventional object – most commonly aircraft, balloons, or astronomical objects such as meteors or bright planets – that have been misidentified by the observer as anomalies. A small percentage of reported sightings (usually 5 %-20 %) are classified as unidentified flying objects in the strictest sense.

  • A model of a flying saucer was kept on a desk in the office of Incredible Tales magazine.

  • Gary Seven has mitigated many UFO incidents to prevent a planetwide panic because of aliens visiting the planet. To accomplish the missions, he often had to disguise himself, other agents AS high ranking officers, and others who had access to highly classified matters, so as to mitigate the many UFO incidents that have been going on. (TOS novels: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1, The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2) The USS Enterprise had traveled back in time to 1969 after escaping the gravity of a black star. They had finally regained control of the vessel while in Earth's atmosphere. Meanwhile, United States Air Force officials on the ground were tracking the Enterprise, and sent Captain John Christopher up to investigate this large UFO in Earth's upper atmosphere. (TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday") This incident was also mitigated by Gary Seven, since all USAF bases have several sensor recording and radar recording facilities. (TOS - Star Trek: Assignment: Earth comic: "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow") In 1986, a Klingon Bird-of-Prey under command of the senior staff of the late USS Enterprise decloaked in the Bering Sea. This ship, named the HMS Bounty, was able to prevent the humpback whales George and Gracie from being killed by a whaler operating in the area. A tracking station in Nome, Alaska tracked the Bounty as it left Earth's atmosphere. Gary Seven had the radar and sensor logs seized and destroyed to preserve the timeline. The whaling captain and crew's UFO sighting was discredited, since alcohol (beer, whiskey, vodka) was found, and some of the crew were deemed mentally ill in accordance to the Robertson Panel. (TOS movie: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) When USS Voyager traveled back to 1996, the ship briefly entered the atmosphere in an attempt to retrieve a 29th century timeship before Henry Starling could use the ship to travel to the 29th century. Voyager passed over Los Angeles, and was captured on video by a number of people, which was subsequently broadcast on news stations. The United States government downplayed this UFO sighting, however the United States Armed Forces were placed on alert. (VOY episode: "Future's End") After Voyager left, Gary Seven also mitigated this UFO incident, to preserve the timeline. He also found and completely destroyed the crashed shuttle that Voyager had sent, after its remains were sent by the US military to Area 51. To "explain" what people had videotaped, Gary Seven issued statements to CNN, and other news outlets that the object photographed and videotaped was that the USAF was testing a new plane, a possible replacement for the B-2 Spirit, and that the flight crew were disciplined for flying the plane over a populated area. The "test plane" was at Edwards Air Force Base (which is near Los Angeles) then was "taken" to "a undisclosed military base". (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2) Later that year, Khan Singh's ship was launched from Area 51, and as it went into outer space, it flew over Nevada, then Arizona, which was promptly reported as one of the UFOs seen during the Phoenix UFO Incident. Alien ships were also seen, including one that was the size of a large city hovering over Phoenix, Arizona. Gary Seven mitigated this famous "UFO Incident" with great difficulty. He even had someone dressed as a alien, placed in handcuffs, escorted by Arizona DPS police officers put on TV as a joke. The other UFOs that were videotaped were top secret craft and holographic effects. Those flying the top secret aircraft were severely disciplined for flying these over populated areas, according to statements given by Gary Seven to news outlets of the era, such as CNN, FOX TV News, and FOX News, to preserve both the timeline and to prevent panic.

A small percentage of reported sightings (usually 5 %-20 %) are classified as unidentified flying objects in the strictest sense. Certain scientists have argued that all UFO sightings, in the strictest sense, are misidentifications of prosaic natural phenomena and historically, there was debate among some scientists about whether scientific investigation was warranted given available empirical data. Very little peer-reviewed literature has been published in which scientists have proposed, studied or supported non-prosaic explanations for UFOs. UFO reports became more common after the first widely publicized US sighting – reported by private pilot Kenneth Arnold in 1947 – that gave rise to the popular terms "flying saucer" and "flying disc". Since then, millions of people have reported that they have seen UFOs.
  • Reports of unidentified aerial phenomena date back to ancient times, but modern reports and the first official investigations began during World War II with sightings of so-called foo fighters by Allied airplane crews, and in 1946 with widespread sightings of European "ghost rockets". UFO reports became even more common after the first widely publicized United States UFO sighting, by private pilot Kenneth Arnold in mid 1947. Hundreds of thousands of UFO reports have since been made worldwide. Since its introduction the term has become heavily associated with flying saucers and alien spacecraft, though an object may be classified as a UFO independently of opinion as to its origins. Most military and civilian UFO investigations concluded that the majority of objects can be identified either directly, or by applying Occam's Razor.
  • Several theories have been put forward to explain (or explain away) UFOs. The most well known is the Extra-terrestrial hypothesis, which holds that the objects and their occupants come from outer space. Despite various criticisms of this idea, is it so well-established that the hypothesis is almost a given when UFOs are discussed, especially outside the specialist literature.
