Summertime is here and that means conventions, outdoor activities and lots of driving. We would like to encourage everyone to remain safe during these hot months. If you are behind the wheel, basking in the sun or gathering with friends always be aware of unsafe practices.

Speaking of getting together, the annual Fleet Day is coming up on Saturday, July 27th. This will be held at Taylorsville Park in Taylorsville Utah. The games, that are open to everyone, will run from 10am to 5pm. This year the USS White Buffalo is coordinating the games. We are looking forward to seeing our Star Trek family there.

What did you all think of the final season of Star Trek: Discovery? We are talking about it on the Seventh Fleet Discord. While there are no new episodes coming out in June, the second season of Star Trek: Prodigy starts on Netflix in July. All episodes should drop on the same day so happy binging.

Congratulations To:
Emily Bolander (USS Pulsar) for being promoted to the rank of Ensign.

The Seventh Fleet was saddened to hear of the passing of John G. Trimble. He, with his wife Bjo, ran the letter writing campaign that saved Star Trek back in the 1960’s. He was also very involved with fandom and events such as SCA and conventions. We remember his frequent visits to Utah for both conventions and backyard BBQs. May his memory always be a blessing.

The crew of the USS Discovery is continuing their quest to assemble all of the puzzle pieces before the bad guys get to them. Will they make it? What will the final prize be? What have you thought of season five so far? We are talking about it on our #Spoiler-Zone on the Seventh Fleet Discord Server.

We have a date for our upcoming Fleet Day. The games will be held on Saturday, July 27th at a park in Taylorsville. This is a fun event that everyone can bring their families and friends to attend. Thank you to the USS White Buffalo for putting this Fleet event together.

The Star Trek Adventures 2nd Edition Quickstart rules are now available for download for free in PDF. They can be found at this link on DriveThruRPG. The updates look like they will help streamline the system. They already explain the rules quite a bit as compared to the 1st edition quickstart.

Don’t forget to join us on the Seventh Fleet Discord server. Gif-Wars has been very popular as well as sharing memes. The #Spoiler-Zone is where we can openly talk about the latest episodes (not just of Star Trek) without having to worry about spoiling it for someone who hasn’t seen the episodes yet. We also need photos of your pets for the #Porthos-Pals channel. This becoming the new online hangout.

Welcome Aboard:
Crewman 2nd Class Eric Denslow who is joining the USS Pulsar.

Don’t forget that any spoiler discussion of the episodes should take place in the #Spoiler-Zone channel of the Seventh Fleet Discord server.

The filming has completed on the Section 31 movie for Paramount+. There has already been some photos and a special announcement made about one of the characters that had her origins on The Next Generation.

Information on how to prepare for this drill and how you can protect yourself from earthquakes can be found at the link just posted above.

It is with a sad heart that we have to report that Commander (Retired) Dalice Nilson passed away on Monday, January 15, 2024. She was the first executive officer of the USS Rendezvous and was a huge force in the development and launching of the Rendezvous in the early 90’s.

The 2024 Admiral’s Banquet is this Saturday, February 4th at the Weber County Library Southwest Branch in Roy. We will be starting at 2:00pm. Be there in uniform or nice dress, otherwise you just might find yourself in the brig. (grin) This is the big opportunity to see the extended Star Trek family in one location. The Roy library is just up the street from the Roy Frontrunner stop.

At the Admiral’s Banquet a special award will be handed out to those that have reached Bingo or Blackout in the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo event. What will it be? Come to the banquet to find out.

The Seventh Fleet calendars are done and will be given to the Commanding Officers at the banquet. They will distribute them from there. Thank you to to everyone who submitted photos for the calendar.

Hailing Frequencies Open logo

Welcome to the year of 2024. There are quite a few things that are coming up for us. First is our annual Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet. While it is called the Admiral’s Banquet, it is really for the Admirals to celebrate the variety of crewmembers. We really are part of a Star Trek family. Normally this is held on the last Saturday of January, however the building that the USS Kelly arranged for us to use was booked up at that time, so we are moving it back one week to Saturday, February 3rd. This is a Uniform or Nice-Dress event for members and their plus ones. This will be held at the Weber County Southwest Library in Roy, Utah and will run from 2-5pm.

At the Admiral’s Banquet, we will be recognizing the members who participated in the 25th Anniversary Bingo. Those that made Bingo and Blackout will receive a special award. This event was a blast to participate in. Most of the photos from this Bingo event were used in the 2024 Seventh Fleet Calendar. If you have ordered a calendar, they will be passed out to the Commanding Officers at the banquet.

If you are interested in being contacted by one of our chapters for membership, please fill out our Online Interest Form. We will then forward it to the chapter that you requested.

Hailing Frequencies Open November/December 2023

Hailing Frequencies Open logo

So our apologies about the lack of an update recently. The primary webmaster who writes up the monthly Hailing Frequencies Open had a medical issue last month. Thankfully he has made a recovery and is now back in action (after following doctor’s orders). To make up for it, we will combine November and December into one post.

It is with a sad heart that we must announce that Aimee Jacobs of the USS Ticonderoga passed away in November due to complications with cancer. There was a very good turnout of fleet members at her viewing and funeral. A donation was made by both the Seventh Fleet and the USS Ticonderoga to her funeral expenses. We would like to extend our condolences to her husband, Brad Jacobs, and the rest of Aimee’s family.

Here is what the cover to the 2024 Seventh Fleet Calendar will look like. If you haven’t gotten your $10 in to buy one, please contact your commanding officer ASAP. We need to have 50 orders to get the best price for a print run. This calendar will contain photos of the various 25th Anniversary Bingo entries.

Speaking of 2024, we have a date for the Admiral’s Banquet. It will be Saturday, February 3rd in Roy, Utah. This is a uniformed or nice dressed event where we come to celebrate the anniversary of the Seventh Fleet. All members and their plus one are invited to attend. All of the January dates were booked, so we had to move to the first Saturday in February. The USS Kelly is hosting and they have quite a few items that they are looking forward to presenting. There will also be another silent auction at the banquet. Also at the banquet we will be recognizing the winners of the 25th Anniversary Bingo. Make sure your commanding officer has your credits down if you made a bingo (completed five items) or blackout (completed all items) so that we can make sure your award is present.

The USS Valkyrie is back under command of Captain Charles Core after Lt. Commander John Paskett has stepped away to take some much needed leave. The chapter is now running as a Constitution Refit class with the registry of NCC-6353. We thank Lt. Commander Paskett for his service.

For some reason, the email we have set up for the Seventh Fleet academy on the @seventhfleet.org domain hasn’t been forwarding to Commodore Marla Trowbridge, the Academy Commandant. To make sure that emails are getting to her, please use SeventhFleetAcademy@gmail.com for all correspondence. If you have sent something recently and did not receive a response, please re-send to the gmail address listed above.

Star Trek: Prodigy will be available on Netflix starting on December 25th. The last season of Star Trek: Discovery will launch sometime in April, 2024. Pre-production has started on the Section 31 movie.

If you are interested in being contacted by one of our chapters for membership, please fill out our Online Interest Form. We will then forward it to the chapter that you requested.

Hailing Frequencies Open October 2023

Many thanks to all of the Seventh Fleet members who volunteered at the FanX booth last month. We were able to accomplish our community service charter and help guide our world towards the spirit we see in the 24th century. We had a special guest at our booth, one of the artists for Heroes4Causes. This is a group that creates comic characters (and comic books) based off of real life heroes. Kids that are afflicted by Type One Diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis or Pediatric Brain Cancer. The cutouts of the Lower Decks characters were provided by the USS Valkyrie, who also coordinated the volunteers. We also had the USS White Buffalo run not just one, but two different Artemis bridge simulators at the convention.

If you stopped by either location and checked us out, welcome. We hope you had fun at the convention. Please visit our Online Interest Form and let us know which chapter you would like to have reach out to you. Even if you wrote down your information at the booth, this helps us get your details to the chapter as quickly as possible. You can also look around this website and ask us questions. We would love to have us join the fun at one of our many upcoming activities.

Due to the strikes in Hollywood, there wasn’t a lot of news about our favorite franchise. The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series was held. This includes the release of the non-cannon, Very Short Treks. Drawn in the animation style of the 70’s cartoon, these episodes are like mini-Saturday Night Live skits. The mileage may vary per episode. One area where the quality has continued to excel is the fourth season of Star Trek: Lower Decks. We’ve already had people ask about getting a hold of a Moopsy plushie. We also know that The Doctor will be making a return in Star Trek: Prodigy, wherever we might be seeing the next season.

And speaking of the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo, WE NEED YOUR PICTURES. We will be using them in the upcoming 2024 Seventh Fleet Calendar. But we can’t pull the pictures off of Facebook because of the method they use to compress the photos. Please email them to Bingo@SeventhFleet.org.

Don’t forget to join us on the Seventh Fleet Discord server. Gif-Wars has been very popular as well as sharing memes. The #Spoiler-Zone is where we can openly talk about the latest episodes (not just of Star Trek) without having to worry about spoiling it for someone who hasn’t seen the episodes yet. We also need photos of your pets for the #Porthos-Pals channel. This becoming the new online hangout.

September is upon us and there is a lot to celebrate with our Star Trek fandom. First is the season four premier of Star Trek: Lower Decks with two episodes for us to enjoy. Twovix and I Have No Bones Yet I Must Fleet. The first we have a good idea on, the second we will have to see. On Friday, September 8th we will be seeing a special for Star Trek Day (plus the first Very Short Treks which will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series).

FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention is one of the big events that we look forward to each year. There are a lot of Star Trek guests that will be in attendance for us to see. The Seventh Fleet will have a charity booth on the vendor floor (coordinated by the USS Valkyrie) and the Artemis bridge simulator with Star Trek skins (coordinated by the USS White Buffalo) in one of the gaming rooms. We will need volunteers for both areas. FanX: The Salt Lake Convention will be held on September 21-23 at the Salt Palace. This will also be the last opportunity to sign The Scortch for the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo.

FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention is one of the big events that we look forward to each year. There are a lot of Star Trek guests that will be in attendance for us to see. The Seventh Fleet will have a charity booth on the vendor floor (coordinated by the USS Valkyrie) and the Artemis bridge simulator with Star Trek skins (coordinated by the USS White Buffalo) in one of the gaming rooms. We will need volunteers for both areas. Artemis has training dates coming up on August 19 & 26 and September 2, 9 & 16. Contact your Commanding Officer and let them know that you are interested in helping. Not only is it worth points, but you can see the convention as well. This convention will be held at the Salt Palace on September 21-23.

We’ve been really enjoying Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The crossover episode with Lower Decks dropped early much to our surprise. Instead of posting spoilers on the Seventh Fleet facebook page, we’ve created a #Spoiler-Zone on the Seventh Fleet discord server. The #Gif-Wars channels has been very popular and we have a new channel dedicated to our pets called #Porthos-Pals. There you can post pictures of your furbabies. Feel free to come join us.

When the call goes out to Star Trek fandom, the fans responds in droves. As most of you may have heard, the future of Star Trek: Prodigy is up in the air right now. If you haven’t watched this show, it may have already been pulled off of Paramount+. You can still get the disks from Amazon by following this link. There has also been a #SaveStarTrekProdigy petition started at Change.org that you can sign at this link. Talk about the show on social media with the hashtag and sign the petition. It has been a great show that has contributed to the Star Trek universe.

Science fiction author Peter David has written several Star Trek novels and comics. We’ve had the opportunity to meet him at FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention. Unfortunately he has been experiencing several compounding health issues, which unfortunately have lead to several medical bills. There has been a GoFundMe set up for him and we would like to encourage anyone who can to donate.
