This is the Duty bLog for the club.
Past and Present events for the chapter are being posted here. It will start with the things that we did as the 49th Marine Strike Group, and it will continue as how we continue along as the USS Stephen Hawking. When we moved away from the San Francisco area it took a few months. Then we chose to make the full break and start on a journey as our very own Coorospondance Chapter in Starfleet.
Since then we have become not only comfortable as our very own chapter, but we have become very sucessful as a chapter. We have a long way to go, and we would like to engage and keep our other members who are far away involved in the fun that we want to share. Starfleet is a great place to share our experiences in Fandom. We all share the dream of a future of harmony and love in the world.
There was a greater message in the 50 year old vision that TV writer Eugene Roddenberry shared with the world when Star Trek came into being, and the subsquent incarnations as Star Trek the Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Enterprise. We look forward to the new TV show in 2017. We have enjoyed most of the movie offerings, and have actually become involved in some of the Fan Made Productions that you can see on YouTube and other places on the internet.
As time moves forward we hope that our futures will always include Star Trek, and its special message that it brings to humanity.

So about two weeks after I went to the ST: Beyond Fan Screening I was looking at images from Pintrest and I came across this movie poster from ST: The Motion Picture.
I know that many homages to the 50 year old franchize are being paid in this film and in other things this season. I wonder if they meant to do thi...Read Full Post »

A short while ago, there were two Strike Groups that belonged to the USS Golden Gate. That was when Starfleet told us that only one Strike Group per chapter. So the 13th MSG went into hybernation and we got to keep the designation from the Marines. As soon as we started our own chapter in Southern California, the 13th Marine Strike Group was re-awakned like Godzilla from a deep ocean slumber.
The 13th had a logo created by Lenny Emery of the USS Golden Gate, the center of the logo...Read Full Post »

The crew returned to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory this weekend. It was a better experience than before because JPL used a different method to get guests into the facility this time. There was a ticket distribution system that was set up, where you were allowed to reserve 5 tickets at a time. The tickets were free, and distributed through Everbright. There was a specific date when you were allowed to go online and reserve your group of tickets. The best part was that if your gues...Read Full Post »
