Hailing Frequencies Open April 2024

Hailing Frequencies Open logo

The fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery is almost upon us. It has been quite a ride. It will be interesting to see where this final adventure takes us. A lot of us have been enjoying Star Trek: Strange New Worlds that was presented to us after the second season of Discovery. We will be watching on Paramount+ on April 4th. Don’t forget that any spoiler discussion of the episodes should take place in the #Spoiler-Zone channel of the Seventh Fleet Discord server.

The filming has completed on the Section 31 movie for Paramount+. There has already been some photos and a special announcement made about one of the characters that had her origins on The Next Generation.

We have a date for our upcoming Fleet Day. The games will be held on Saturday, July 27th at a park in Taylorsville. This is a fun event that everyone can bring their families and friends to attend. Thank you to the USS White Buffalo for putting this Fleet event together.

Spring is here and a lot of us can’t wait for the warmer weather. Don’t forget that safety should be at the forefront when you start with your outdoor activities. One of the events that the State of Utah holds every April is the Great Utah Shakeout coming up on April 18th. This is a state-wide earthquake drill that starts at 10:15 am. Information on how to prepare for this drill and how you can protect yourself from earthquakes can be found at the link just posted above.

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.
