<< Into Thin Air First Encounter Communication Period >>

First Encounter is one of the periods of the xkcd comic Time within the Contact Era.

It lasted from frame 2646, when Cueball spots someone up on the hill ahead, to frame 2693.

During the period, Megan and Cueball rush to meet the person that they spotted, yelling to them several times on the way to get their attention. At frame 2652 it is indicated that the person has seen Megan and Cueball and then at frame 2654 the pair first catches sight of the mysterious individual, who appears to be wearing a headband. Two more of these people appear; in the forum they were named Beanies due to their hats. Cuegan attempt to talk to the Beanies, but they speak a different language. Megan then shows them her injury, and the Beanies put ointment on it.
