We are a chapter of STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association, an organization of approximately 4900 Star Trek fans worldwide. In New Jersey alone, we are one of seven chapters. Our members come from primarily Northern New Jersey but we welcome anyone who wishes to join from other areas of NJ or out of state. Members must also join STARFLEET.
While we are primarily a Star Trek club, our members also include fans of many other television series, movies, comics and books in the science fiction, horror, animation and fantasy genres such as Battlestar Galactica, The 4400, Star Wars, Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lord of the Rings, Angel, Farscape, Babylon 5, Japanese animation, Simpsons, X-Men, Harry Potter, Firefly/Serenity, Stargate SG-1, Stargate:Atlantis, etc.
We are primarily a social organization that meets monthly at the Morris County Library. In addition, we plan many social events at other times. For instance, members host game nights - both roleplaying and board games, picnics, barbecues, movie days/nights. We meet for dinner occasionally through a Star Trek Meetup organization. We go to movies, play paintball, bowl, miniature golf. We visit museums and attend other cultural events. We attend renaissance fairs in costume. We attend Star Trek and other science fiction and horror conventions.
Tales of the Seventh Fleet
In addition, many of our members are very creative. They write and shoot episodes of Tales of the Seventh Fleet, which is a series of adventures of the USS Justice. Most of the members have created their own characters and act in these episodes. Other members work on script, special effects, costuming, music, makeup or set design, or perform a combination of all of the above.
