More work was done on the site today. We removed several old link pages (these were held over from the days when link pages were very popular on websites). Most of the links were out of date and the information on actors, writers, etc. could be found by a simple google search.
Also updated the USS Valkyrie logo and scheduled several upcoming blog posts with information on Star Trek anniversaries and chapter meetings and events. These posts will come at midnight on the date of the events. Check back for information on the fun our chapters will be having.
Work on updating the site will continue over the next week. If you see anything that is badly out of date, please let us know at Webmaster@SeventhFleet.org

Log Entry: Stardate 72090.2, Vice Admiral Carl Stark recording. Just as Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet is constantly looking for ways to improve our processes and our organization, we have decided that there should be a change in the website as well. Prior to this, the home page for the fleet website was a constantly updating calendar showing the list of upcoming fleet and chapter events. This calendar can still be found on our Events page. However the main page will be used for news and discussion about the Seventh Fleet and our fandom. One of the reasons for this change is to be inclusive to those fans who do not access our Facebook page or Twitter account.
There will be other changes happening as well as time permits. Some sections of the website may look more like a cobweb site. If you have noticed anything lacking, please let us know and we can try to tackle it. There are also plans to update the chapters section to provide additional information on the interests of the chapter. Another goal is to finally get the massive photo album online for all to enjoy.
Thanks for sticking with us and reading this log entry. I can’t wait to see how we can better utilize this communications tool.
Stardate 96652.22 Staff of family. Mr Hnack has restored the site, communications has been interrupted over the past week to in infestation of Klingon Malware. As a reminder to protect the integrity of our site, use complex passwords, do not share, change passwords etc. Most of all bring any issues to Mr Stark or myself a quickly as possible. The previous webhost is no longer doing business with us, I have found a trusted source that speaks human, is local to our region and was quick to assist in moving all website content.
We are online once again. Live long, and I-Sci-Fi, do you ?
Log Entry: Stardate 67042.6. Rear Admiral Stark recording. Our apologies for the delay in uploading the photos. Our webmaster caught a stomach virus from the convention and it put him out of commission for a few days. However we are now happy to report that all of the photos taken with the shuttle Fairbanks are now posted online. CLICK HERE TO FIND THE PHOTOS
The USS Rendezvous had build the shuttle as part of their Star Trek fan film called The Inquiry. After they had completed filming, Captain Trowbridge of the Rendezvous recommended that we use the shuttle to also fulfill one of our other primary goals as a Star Trek fan club, helping our community. At the Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet she proposed running a photo booth with the shuttle at the upcoming Salt Lake Comic Con-FanX. We discussed various charities and elected to support HopeKids of Utah and Idaho this year.
The fleet came together to help get the shuttle finished for the event. Following out motto of “We do not stand alone”, members of all chapters pitched in to help. They also helped when it came time to get the shuttle to Salt Lake (over 100 miles one-way) and especially to run the booth promoting both the fleet and HopeKids.
So we would like to give a big thank you to everyone from the fleet, HopeKids, The Salt Palace staff, Dan Farr and the Salt Lake Comic Con staff and to everyone who participated in this charity fundraiser. Over $2,000 was raised for HopeKids and we look forward to helping them at future events.
Side Note: Some of you may have your photo numbers stating that the dates the photos will be online will be from 5-23 to 6-23. To make sure everyone has a chance to download their photos, we will leave the photos up until 6-23. Afterwards they will be taken down.
