Hailing Frequencies Open October 2023
Many thanks to all of the Seventh Fleet members who volunteered at the FanX booth last month. We were able to accomplish our community service charter and help guide our world towards the spirit we see in the 24th century. We had a special guest at our booth, one of the artists for Heroes4Causes. This is a group that creates comic characters (and comic books) based off of real life heroes. Kids that are afflicted by Type One Diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis or Pediatric Brain Cancer. The cutouts of the Lower Decks characters were provided by the USS Valkyrie, who also coordinated the volunteers. We also had the USS White Buffalo run not just one, but two different Artemis bridge simulators at the convention.
If you stopped by either location and checked us out, welcome. We hope you had fun at the convention. Please visit our Online Interest Form and let us know which chapter you would like to have reach out to you. Even if you wrote down your information at the booth, this helps us get your details to the chapter as quickly as possible. You can also look around this website and ask us questions. We would love to have us join the fun at one of our many upcoming activities.
Due to the strikes in Hollywood, there wasn’t a lot of news about our favorite franchise. The 50th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Animated Series was held. This includes the release of the non-cannon, Very Short Treks. Drawn in the animation style of the 70’s cartoon, these episodes are like mini-Saturday Night Live skits. The mileage may vary per episode. One area where the quality has continued to excel is the fourth season of Star Trek: Lower Decks. We’ve already had people ask about getting a hold of a Moopsy plushie. We also know that The Doctor will be making a return in Star Trek: Prodigy, wherever we might be seeing the next season.
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.
