EXTRA, EXTRA!!!!! Read all about it.  Yes once again our Star Trek club has made the local newspaper.  In the Friday (March 18th) edition of the Ogden Standard Examiner published an interview with Captain Erica Stark and Rear Admiral Carl Stark about the 20th Anniversary of our Star Trek family.    The article can be found here: http://www.standard.net/Lifestyle/2016/03/17/northern-utah-star-trek-club-20-anniversary.html

Can you believe it?  We started this little get together in the basement of the Clearfield Library in March, 1996.  Our first activity was a visit to the Hill AFB Museum.

What are your memories from the past 20 years?  We would love to hear them.

USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A officially launched

CaptStark_AdmHollingerNow that Captain Erica Stark has completed all of the requirements to achieve the rank of Captain (not an easy task in the Seventh Fleet) the next version of the USS Ticonderoga can now launched.  At the USS Ticonderoga room party at CONduit, Seventh Fleet CinC Admiral Dennis Hollinger officially launched the USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A.  Ronin Class Starship.  Admiral Hollinger presented the dedication plaque for the new starship to Captain Stark.



Even with this major goal accomplished, the Ticonderoga is not sitting on it’s laurels.  We have Fantasicon coming up at the Pleasant Valley Library (Weber County) on June 6th.  We also have a ton of events planned for the year and we are also continuing to grow.  We could have two new chapter-in-training Runabouts launched by the end of summer.  Now is when we need your help and now is when we need new ideas.  It’s time to boldly go.  Let’s see what’s out there.

19th Anniversary, March Meeting and March Activity

picard_clappingFirst: The USS Ticonderoga started as a Star Trek club on this date, March 9th, all the way back in 1996.  We met at the Clearfield Library to announce our launching (as the USS Euphrates, a chapter-in-training off of the USS Kelly) and then went to the Hill AFB Museum as the activity.  That was nineteen years ago.  How many clubs last for over nineteen years?  Congratulations to all of you who contribute towards the club.

Second: The March Meeting is coming up on Wednesday the 11th at 7:00pm.  And yes we are back at the Roy Library after having to find alternate locations for the last two months.  Bring your Star Trek show and tell items.  More importantly, bring a friend to introduce to the club.  Remember you gain 10 leadership points for each new recruit.

Third: Our March activity will be held on Saturday the 14th.  Lt. Richard Luke will be conducting a leather working class.  There is a $5 material fee for the items we are making (a rounder, a coin purse or a key-chain).  Please RSVP at the meeting so we have enough material.  We are also encouraging everyone to celebrate Pi Day by bringing a favorite pie.  This will start at noon at Starbase 40.   You may want to eat lunch before coming over.

Welcome to the USS Ticonderoga

tumblr_mlqazxxMau1re4m0po2_250We had a great time promoting the new Star Trek: Into Darkness movie at the Megaplex 13 theaters in The Junction.  One of the best parts was meeting all of the various Star Trek fans that came out to see the movie.  There were a lot of people in uniform and a lot of interested people who stopped by the booth.  The life-sized action figure box resulted in a lot of fun photos.  We even had the Ogden Standard-Examiner come by to profile us in an article (which will be added to our In The News section soon).

So to all of those interested Star Trek fans who are now reading this website, welcome.  We made this website for our members and possible members to find out more about our free Star Trek fan club.  We have been a club since 1996.  You can read about some of our past in our History section.  We have had a wide variety of Past Activities and Upcoming Events (we are always looking to try something new).  Our Community Service is also something that we are very fond of promoting.  We are very proud of our Intrepid class starship and it’s Namesake.  What really makes our club a family is our Crew.  We are a founding chapter of the Seventh Fleet, our parent organization.  We also get along with a lot of other Star Trek/Sci-Fi groups and proudly display the gifts we’ve received in our online Trophy Case.  Besides this website, you can also interact with us on our Facebook page or on our Yahoogroups.  If you have any questions that are not on our FAQ, you can Contact us and we will be more than happy to answer them.  If you are ready to Join, you can fill out a membership application and we will let you know when the next USS Ticonderoga meeting will be.  Welcome aboard.

January monthly meeting – planning our 2012 events

So it is time for the regular USS Ticonderoga monthly meeting to be held on Wednesday, January 11th.  As per usual this will be at 7:00pm at the Weber County Library meeting rooms on 25th and Jefferson.  Unlike other meetings, this meeting is a huge one for the crew.   This may be the last chance to order a Seventh Fleet Calendar on it’s final run ($10 a calendar).  Captain Erica Stark will have the latest information from the Seventh Fleet Council Meeting.  But most important, this will be the meeting that the club as a whole gets to plan out all of our events that we want to hold for 2012.  We will be talking about fleet banquets, fleet games, conventions (CONduit, Starfest and Star Trek Las Vegas) and more.

Bring your friends, bring your ideas and lets set a course into 2012.

Reminder to Department Chiefs: Call your people

Captain Erica Stark would like to send out a reminder to the USS Ticonderoga Department Chiefs.  Please call your people about upcoming events and activities.  Currently we need a headcount for the upcoming Seventh Fleet Olympics hosted by the USS Atlantis in southern Idaho on Saturday, August 20th.  We also need to know who needs rides and who can give rides.  We need this by Friday, July 29th.

Crewmembers, if your contact information has changed, please contact your Department Chief or the Ticonderoga’s Executive Officer, Lt. Dave Stock.
