Welcome to the year 2023. It is a time of excitement as the new year brings a chance for new opportunities. We are saddened by the recent lost of Captain Roger Taylor, but we are looking forward to getting together to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet.
The 2023 Admiral’s Banquet will be held on Saturday, January 28th at the Richmond City building in Richmond, Utah. This uniformed (or nice dressed) event will start at Noon and is being hosted by the USS Valkyrie. We will be holding a memorial and gathering for photos. Chapters will present reports and music videos. This is a special event for members and their plus ones to gather and celebrate our Star Trek family.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, the Seventh Fleet will be planing a variant of Enterprise Bingo seen on the Star Trek: Strange New World episode “Spock Amok“. This yearlong event has twelve challenges with the titles listed below. If you complete five of the challenges, you will earn a BINGO. If you complete all twelve then you will earn a Blackout. You can complete one of the challenges by taking a photo with you doing the challenge. This can be sent/shown to your Commanding Officer, emailed to Bingo@SeventhFleet.org or posted on social media with the hashtag #7thFleet25 and #WeDoNotStandAlone. There will be a separate blog post with additional details.
The titles of the twelve challenges are:
45th Rule of Acquisition
Best Served Cold
Do you Trust Me?
Ex Astris Scientia
The Sky’s The Limit
You Never Brought Me Tea
What do you think they are?
