Larry King would be talking about it incessantly.

It would be worldwide news fairly soon. The Pentagon would be inundated with requests, and there would be tersely stated pronouncements that "the Pentagon is aware of these reports and is investigating this matter. We cannot confirm or deny that this is a military vehicle."

Conan would make jokes about Trekkies wanting to beam up to it for conventions.

Days would pass, and it would remain the Silenterprise.
At any rate, things have been covered up before.

Indeed. I seem to remember that there was an Apollo XVIII mission that launched, before all traces of it were erased in the historical records.

Long before than my good man, long before that. Did you ever wonder why America, USSR, and other powers got so interested in space right after WWII?

Surely not because of Roswell?
