Hailing Frequencies Open logo

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.

Hailing Frequencies Open May 2024

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.
Crewman 2nd Class Zoe Standifird who is joining the USS Pulsar.

Congratulations To:

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.

One of the events that the State of Utah holds every April is the Great Utah Shakeout coming up on April 18th. This is a state-wide earthquake drill that starts at 10:15 am. 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.

Spring is just around the corner and a lot of us can’t wait for the warmer weather. Don’t forget that safety should be at the forefront when you start with your outdoor activities.

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.

Where did October go? That month went by fast. We hope everyone had a great Halloween dressing up and playing tricks on friends. Now it is time for Thanksgiving and thinking about all of the things we are thankful for.

We are now taking orders for the 2023 Seventh Fleet Calendar. Thanks to our friends at Gordon’s Copy and Print we will be able to keep our prices the same as the were since we started the calendar in 2012, which is $10 an issue. We have to sell a minimum of 50 calendars to get this price. If you would like to order one, please contact your commanding officer.

The USS Kelly is holding an auction and food drive on Saturday, November 5th. This will be at the Fiiz Drinks located at 2350 West 4700 South (just off of I-215) in Taylorsville. There will be homemade baked goods. Star Trek and sci-fi collectibles will be sold as a fundraiser (a great way to get holiday gifts).

Who enjoyed the third season of Star Trek: Lower Decks? If you haven’t seen the last episode of the season, there is an after-credits scene (dun, dun, dunnnnnnnn). The first episode of the second half of Star Trek: Prodigy season one is out and now we know the threat that The Diviner has now unleashed. How will the crew of the USS Protostar get out of this predicament? And a lot of Seventh Fleet members cannot wait to see the third season of Star Trek: Picard in February. Thankfully there are other episodes to watch while we wait . On PlutoTV, the Star Trek channel will be expanding with Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine joining Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Discovery on the free streaming service.

Hailing Frequencies Open October 2022

Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped out at our FanX booth. We were able to raise a significant amount for the American Cancer Society. Captain Joe Coleflesh of the USS Pulsar will be delivering it soon. We hope that a thank you letter will be coming soon. AT the booth was a photo op with a detailed Star Trek: Strange New Worlds transporter pad. This included sounds and a transporter effect displayed on the backdrop. The Artemis bridge simulator organized by the USS White Buffalo was also a success.

If you are checking out the organization after visiting with us at FanX, feel free to look around and ask questions. We would love to have us join the fun at one of our many upcoming activities.

The USS Delaware also successfully helped out with the Star Trek Day at the West Valley City Library with Star Trek actress Mary Rice in attendance. There were also representatives from the USS Kelly and the USS Ticonderoga.

Welcome USS Protostar on Star Trek: Prodigy

Star Trek Prodigy premiers on October 28th

The latest Star Trek series is about to take off. Star Trek: Prodigy is airing on Paramount+ on Thursday, October 28th. It is created by CBS Eye Animation Studios for Nickelodeon and Paramount+. It features a crew of lawless teenagers who find the experimental USS Protostar and use it to escape the dire situation they are in. While onboard, they discover that the Protostar is equipped with a Holographic Training Program based off of Captain Kathryn Janeway of the USS Voyager.

Star Trek: Prodigy is the first Star Trek series to be animated by computer rendered imaging and and 3D modeling. The Short Treks episode “The Girl Who Made The Stars” was also produced this way.

Here are the characters we will meet on Star Trek: Prodigy.

Dal voiced by Brett Gray
Gwyn voiced by Ella Purnell
Murf voiced by Dee Bradley Baker and Rok-Tahk voiced by Rylee Alazraqui
Zero voiced by Angus Imrie
Jankom Pog voiced by Jason Mantzoukas
Janeway Hologram voiced by Kate Mulgrew

Robert Beltran has confirmed that he will be voicing Chakotay in this series. We don’t know if this is a cameo or a regular appearance. Jason Alexander will be returning to Star Trek with a new role for Prodigy (again we don’t know how many appearances). John Nobel (from Lord of the Rings and Fringe) will be voicing a character known as The Diviner. There is also the return of a character from The Next Generation. But we don’t want to say who it is because (River Song voice) “Spoilers.”

Check out the pilot episode “Lost & Found” on Paramount+ on October 28th.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season One

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season One Steelray Collectors Edition

Note: Funds raised from the Amazon Store link will be used to cover costs of keeping the Fleet website up and running. You can purchase the disks for Star Trek: Lower Decks season one here.

The first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday, May 18th. This unique comedy Star Trek series was a big hit when it first aired on CBS All Access (now Paramount+) This series was a big hit with Star Trek fans not only because of the humor, but of the many different easter eggs hidden throughout the series. Often after an episode had been released social media would buzz with “Did you spot this or notice that?” One of the more unique easter eggs was the infamous Star Trek Helmet that was made in the 1970’s by the toy company Remco.

This series followed four Ensigns that were assigned to the California-Class USS Cerritos. These Ensigns try to fulfill their duties without going insane from the hustle and bustle in the lower decks are Beckett Mariner (who holds a secret), Brad Boimler (who wishes to rise to the rank of Captain), D’Vana Tendi (an Orion who is starstruck about being onboard) and Sam Rutherford (who has a cybernetic implant and loves engineering). There are also several cameo appearances by characters seen in other series.

There were ten episodes in the first season which include:

Second Contact (Stardate: 57436.2)- The crew of the Cerritos follows up with a new planet that just made contact with the Federation.

Envoys (Stardate: Unknown) Boimler and Mariner must escort a Klingon general to Tulganan IV.

Temporal Edict (Stardate: 57501.4) The USS Cerritos is ordered to Gerlak V to deliver some “diplomatic trinkets”.

Moist Vessel (Stardate: 57538.9) Can Mariner survive being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant (j.g.)?

Cupid’s Errant Arrow (Stardate: 57601.3) Ensign Boimler’s girlfriend arrives on the Cerritos. Is she what she claims to be?

Terminal Provocations (Stardate: 57663.9) The Cerritos crew faces off against the Drookmani scavengers. Ensign Rutherford introduces his holo-creation “Badgey”.

Much Ado About Boimler (Stardate: 57752.6) Ensign Boimler is pushed out of phase by a transporter accident. Can Starfleet Medical cure his condition?

Veritas (Stardate: Unknown) The four ensigns must testify before a tribunal to save their senior officers on K’Tuevon Prime.

Crisis Point (Stardate: Unknown) Ensign Mariner reprograms Boimler’s holoprogram into a movie, with some twists.

No Small Parts (Stardate: Unknown) Mariner’s secret is revealed as the crew of the Cerritos fights off an invading enemy.

The Star Trek: Lower Decks season one Blu-ray set also includes several special features including deleted scenes, trailers and more.
