September is upon us and there is a lot to celebrate with our Star Trek fandom. First is the season four premier of Star Trek: Lower Decks with two episodes for us to enjoy. Twovix and I Have No Bones Yet I Must Fleet. The first we have a good idea on, the second we will have to see. On Friday, September 8th we will be seeing a special for Star Trek Day (plus the first Very Short Treks which will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series).
FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention is one of the big events that we look forward to each year. There are a lot of Star Trek guests that will be in attendance for us to see. The Seventh Fleet will have a charity booth on the vendor floor (coordinated by the USS Valkyrie) and the Artemis bridge simulator with Star Trek skins (coordinated by the USS White Buffalo) in one of the gaming rooms. We will need volunteers for both areas. FanX: The Salt Lake Convention will be held on September 21-23 at the Salt Palace. This will also be the last opportunity to sign The Scortch for the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo.
And speaking of the Seventh Fleet 25th Anniversary Bingo, WE NEED YOUR PICTURES. We will be using them in the upcoming 2024 Seventh Fleet Calendar. But we can’t pull the pictures off of Facebook because of the method they use to compress the photos. Please email them to Bingo@SeventhFleet.org.
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.
