Hailing Frequencies Open August 2022

The Admiralty held the 2022 Seventh Fleet Day on July 30th at the Richmond City Building in northern Utah this past Saturday. Despite a broken foot by Admiral Stark (be careful coming down stairs) it went pretty well. We had a ton of fun talking with each other and trying out the various science and engineering experiments that made up the games. Congratulations to the USS Valkyrie for taking home the Bragging Rights Trophy. They beat out the USS White Buffalo in the final heat with the mousetrap car races.

The third season of Star Trek: Lower Decks will premier on August 24th on Paramount+. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you’ll find it on YouTube. We can’t wait to find out how the Lower Deckers get the crew back together and rescue Captain Freeman.

We don’t know where our booth will be at FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention, but we have been notified that our booth space has been reserved. The USS Pulsar is coordinating volunteers for this year. If you would like to volunteer, please contact your commanding officer.
