Grid 1414 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble We joined a new era with the first fifty-four. There are nine further thematic "firsts", one of which precedes this era. Thematic clues contain one extra word, which is a "joiner", ie, it combines with the clue answer (non-thematic) to form the grid entry. All ten entries are made in one of two appropriate ways; two of them are generated from a single answer. Spell out must highlight the original "joiners" (three words) in the completed grid.
