We had a great Fleet Day 2023 last month. Many thanks to the crew of the USS Pulsar for putting on a great event. This is basically our summer reunion for our Star Trek family and every chapter was represented. Don’t worry, if you missed out the USS White Buffalo will be hosting the 2024 Fleet Day next year.
FanX: The Salt Lake Comic Convention is quickly approaching. We will have a booth coordinated by the USS Valkyrie and the USS White Buffalo will be running the Artemis bridge simulator at the con. Both sections are in need of volunteers. If you are able to help out, please contact your commanding officer. This convention will be held at the Salt Palace on September 21-23.
When the call goes out to Star Trek fandom, the fans responds in droves. As most of you may have heard, the future of Star Trek: Prodigy is up in the air right now. If you haven’t watched this show, it may have already been pulled off of Paramount+. You can still get the disks from Amazon by following this link. There has also been a #SaveStarTrekProdigy petition started at Change.org that you can sign at this link. Talk about the show on social media with the hashtag and sign the petition. It has been a great show that has contributed to the Star Trek universe.
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.
We’ve only experienced three episodes of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season two, but they have been AH-Maze-ing. The episodes have only continued to get better.
