Hailing Frequencies Open February 2024

Hailing Frequencies Open logo

It is with a sad heart that we have to report that Commander (Retired) Dalice Nilson passed away on Monday, January 15, 2024. She was the first executive officer of the USS Rendezvous and was a huge force in the development and launching of the Rendezvous in the early 90’s. She always had a smile on her face and she was always happy to see you. She will be missed. The Seventh Fleet would like to extend our condolences to her family.

The 2024 Admiral’s Banquet is this Saturday, February 4th at the Weber County Library Southwest Branch in Roy. We will be starting at 2:00pm. Be there in uniform or nice dress, otherwise you just might find yourself in the brig. (grin) This is the big opportunity to see the extended Star Trek family in one location. The Roy library is just up the street from the Roy Frontrunner stop.

At the Admiral’s Banquet a special award will be handed out to those that have reached Bingo or Blackout in the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo event. What will it be? Come to the banquet to find out.

The Seventh Fleet calendars are done and will be given to the Commanding Officers at the banquet. They will distribute them from there. Thank you to to everyone who submitted photos for the calendar. And a special thank you to Meagan Johnson for putting together the layout for the calendar and Ross Trowbridge for putting together the cover.

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.

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.

Congratulations To:
Meagan Johnson on her engagement to be married.
Scott Hollinger on his engagement to be married.
Jasmine Johnson (USS Pulsar) for being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant (j.g.)
Katherine Trowbridge (USS Rendezvous) for being promoted to the rank of Crewman 1st Class
