So we are going to try a new program within the Seventh Fleet website. This will help us with our goal of having fun with Star Trek (yea novel concept for a fan club right). Every month we will announce a variety of Star Trek episodes and movies from all of the Star Trek series (and some that are from other franchises). These are recommended episodes/movies to watch sometime during the month as your schedule allows. But you’ll be watching the same episodes/movies during the month that members of your Star Trek family will be watching as well.
Some months we will try to have a theme for the selection of episodes/movies. Other months may be just a random selection of episodes/movies. If you have a suggestion for a theme, please email it to Webmaster@SeventhFleet.org for consideration.
We will have a listing for each series. TOS (The Original Series), TAS (The Animated Series), TMS (The Movie Series), TNG (The Next Generation, DS9 (Deep Space Nine), Voy (Voyager), Ent (Enterprise) and DSC (Discovery). There will also be a listing for Other Trek (bloopers, documentaries or anything Trek related that isn’t an episode/movie), Fan Film (one of the many Star Trek fan films available on the internet) and Non-Trek (Any other Sci-Fi/Fantasy series that sounds like fun).
So for those of you who just want to have fun, that’s it in a nutshell. Watch one or more of the suggestions within the month. That’s all and enjoy.
For those of you who are overachievers (and you know who you are), we will try to have Merit Sheets available to fill out while you are watching the episode/movie. However it is strongly suggested that if you have never seen the episode/movie before, watch it first before trying to answer a merit sheet for it. Again, we watch the show for fun. Let us know if you have any questions.
And without further ado, the theme for October 2019 is Spooky Stories (it is the month of Halloween). We tried to select something that would be appropriate for the time of year.
TOS: Catspaw (A Halloween based episode complete with a haunted castle)
TAS: The Magicks of Megas-Tu (Stuck in a world where magic works and science doesn’t)
TMS: Star Trek: First Contact (Cybernetic zombies, definitely not Swedish)
TNG: Phantasms (You must kill zem. You must kill zem all)
DS9: Empok Nor (Trapped on an abandoned station with maniac killers on the loose)
Voy: The Haunting of Deck 12 (Neelix tells a ghost story. Could it be true?)
Ent: Impulse (What happens when Vulcans go out of their minds?)
DSC: Context is for Kings (What killed the crew of the USS Glenn?)
Other Trek: For the Love of Spock (A documentary on Leonard Nimoy)
Fan Film: Ghost Ship: A Star Trek Fan Production (It’s just a recovery mission)
Non-Trek: Alien (1979 movie, hunted by a killer alien)
And for those of you who wish to do so, here are links to some of the Merit Sheets/ADVOTs that have already been produced (not all episodes have been done yet).
