very warm welcome to Space Station Centaur.
SPACE STATION CENTAUR is nominally based in Shropshire but is
a correspondence chapter with members from all over the UK. The one
thing we all have in common is a love of science fiction, particularly
Star Trek. We are part of STARFLEET, The International Star
Trek Fan Association, Inc. (SFI for short), which
is probably the largest Star Trek fan club in the world with over 230
chapters worldwide. SPACE STATION CENTAUR is one of the newest ones,
very recently formed from existing members who wanted to expand on
their SFI experience.
What is a correspondence chapter?
It simply means that we meet predominantly via the Internet. Facebook
is our favoured option, but that's not our only method of getting
together. Having only recently formed, we are still settling into
things but we plan to arrange some sort of get together every quarter.
It could be something as simple as a pub lunch or something greater,
like a visit to a historical site or zoo. Our first meeting in
September will be taking place at the Space Centre in Leicester.
How do I get involved?
You simply have to be a member of SFI and have selected the Centaur to
be your chapter. Membership isn't expensive—just $5 a year, which is
about £4.00 and can be paid very easily by Paypal. You can join quickly
by clicking here.
What can I expect from my membership?
You will meet lots of people who share similar interests to you because
we all love science fiction. You will get to know those new friends as
you chat with them, and take part in little quizzes in the group.
We also produce a quarterly newsletter for our
chapter members (called The
Centaurian) and you will have access to the regional
newsletter (The Runabout) as well as
the Fleet edition(the
Another great membership perk is access to STARFLEET Academy where you
can take exams on all sorts of topics not just from Star Trek, but
other science fiction franchises.
There is lots more I could tell you here, but there will be lots more
information added to this website over the coming weeks, so please do
drop by to see what's happening. In the meantime, if you'd like more
info, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I hope I can look forward to welcoming
you on board soon.
