Hailing Frequencies Open: May 2022

The Admiralty, which got roped into running the 2022 Fleet Day, has been working hard on putting the event together. After our last planning meeting, I can’t wait to see how this day of games and friends turns out.

At our recent Admiral’s Banquet, Crewman 1st Class Eric Moorer was awarded the Federation Medal of Honor after his actions saved the life of a co-worker. Acting Captain Jill Bogler reported that the award was presented to C1 Moorer at the April USS Kelly meeting.

In a sad note, in May 2022 the last Starfest convention will be held. For those of you who have never heard of this, shame on you. Starfest is a convention that has been run for 45 years by the same family company (Starland). Admiral Stark called it “The Dragoncon of the west that you’ve never heard of.” The event had grown to multiple hotels and con-within-a-con festivals. Unfortunately, the events of the past to years, rising costs in getting hotel space and guests and the family growing older contributed to the decision in making this the last party. This is a shame really since these conventions were really a family reunion for the various fans of different genres and shows. We got to meet several fans who became members of our extended Star Trek family. Members of the Seventh Fleet would caravan to Denver to attend this event since the early 1990’s. Thank you to the Walker family and Starfland for all of the many memories. We are looking forward, even in sadness, to the last Starfest.

The USS Kelly will be holding it’s annual “Kelly Kampout” on July 15-17 and they have opened it up for any Seventh Fleet member who would like to attend. Contact the Kelly’s Executive Officer, Lt. Commander Dawn Woods for details.
