What an ending to Star Trek: Picard. Wow! To all of the actors, writers and production personnel we just want to say “Very well done!” If you haven’t seen it yet, we won’t spoil anything for you, but go see it sooner than later. There were a lot of things that we were not expecting. There was a lot of closure and happy moments. Thank you to everyone who worked on this series. Hopefully we will see the (rumored) spin-off that everyone wants to see. Hint: Sign the petition.

If you are missing new Star Trek on Paramount+, you won’t have to wait very much longer. Season two of the very well done (and Bingo inspiring) Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will be released on Thursday, June 15th.

Science fiction author Peter David has written several Star Trek novels and comics. We’ve had the opportunity to meet him at FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention. Unfortunately he has been experiencing several compounding health issues, which unfortunately have lead to several medical bills. There has been a GoFundMe set up for him and we would like to encourage anyone who can to donate.

Many thanks to the USS Valkyrie for volunteering to coordinate the Seventh Fleet booth at FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention. Future details will be announced soon.

And speaking of future events, the USS Pulsar is beyond excited to host the 2023 Seventh Fleet Day on Saturday, June 24th. This will be held in Utah County at a park in Springville. This is a family event that is open to anyone, so bring your guests who may be interested in learning more about our Star Trek family.

There have been lots of pictures sent in for the 25th Anniversary Bingo that we are playing for the entire year. No announcement yet on who will reach BLACKOUT first. Who will make it first? Keep sending your photos into Bingo@SeventhFleet.org. We love seeing the excitement in the crew this celebration has generated.

Welcome Aboard:
Crewman 2nd Class Dawn Sumison who is joining the USS Kelly.
Crewman 2nd Class Shane Sumison who is joining the USS Kelly.

Congratulations To:
Lt. Commander Jill Bogler-Patterson who passed her Star Trek: Deep Space Nine command test.
