Want to do more for the club? Well, there's some open positions being advertised in Command - as of now we need FComm-4, -5, and -6, and the Academy needs an AFLO. The details are in Command - what are you waiting for?Submitted by Anthony Martin on 3 August 2010 - 1:28pm.
"Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."Submitted by Amber DeSadier on 27 February 2015 - 2:25pm.
I seem to be in an unusual position where I'm actually asking if anyone wants to be Election Coordinator for the next Presidential election (which is next month). If anyone is interested, please email me at prez[at]star-fleet.com. Some understanding of the election process would be useful.
As I need to appoint an EC soonest, there isn't going to be a deadline as such - if I think someone who has applied is suitable, I'll be appointing them.

Good evening (again!),
As Dan mentioned last week, I've asked him to run the STF Awards over the next few weeks. In addition to the awards, I would also like to trial having a few IRC sessions on the same day as the awards, talking about various topics of interest to the club. Having discussed it with a couple of Department Directors, there are already a few ideas on the table (for example, I'm keen to spend 30 minutes or so talking about Genesis, and giving examples of what to expect from it).Submitted by Jack Dipper on 25 January 2015 - 6:25pm.
The Engineering Department has three more specs for all active club members to review from now till 2/8/15! Find them here!
