joined my first Trek club in 2012 having been nagged into it by a friend in the
States. I had no idea what lay ahead of me: how many people I would
meet and new friends that I would make. It's been wonderful!"
First Officer: CAPT Colin Barrow
going to Destination Star Trek London in October 2012, I decided to
join a Trek club. I got to meet new people and make
new friends, attend events like The Starbase 24 Banquet, where I met like minded people and made even more friends."
Second Officer: CDR Erika Stroem
joined a Trek club in 2015. Initially I won a year’s subscription in a

around the country and have a fantastic time. I love it!"
Some of our crew and the Departments ...If
there is an area of particular interest to you, you can join a
department aboard CENTAUR. We have lots of them and are always happy to
add new ones if you have something that you'd like to suggest.
COMMUNICATIONSHead of Comms: LTJG Holly Bowler

be found in the LIBRARY.
"In August 2017, I transferred to Centaur to join an
amazing crew on what quickly became the Space Station Centaur. We meet
a lot in our own Facebook groups, chat, role-play, talk about science

lonely in the Tactical bay."

Some reflections from the crew ...... on how we arrived on the Centaur, what we like about it so far, and what hopes we have for our future ...
are many nations of this world but at this time, I find the most
wonderful nation is the imagination, there you can escape into a world
and or a time of your choosing, where you can be anything and anyone
you want to be, away from the world of today where nations are bitching
and warring with each other. It's nice to escape to a world where such
things don't exist.
be honest, most of my experiences of [organisation name removed for
reasons of diplomacy] were crappy, so when the Captain invited me to
the Centaur I was a bit unsure, but I have spoken with Captain in the
past and known her to be kind, cheery and of good heart so I decided I
should give Captain, her station and her crew a shot so here I am. So
far I am happy to report my experiences on the Centaur have been
wonderful, and I love the company too. I hope we can all become good
friends and that friendship will last the longest time, not just in our
imaginary/real world on the station but in our real world off the

the Star Trek community after a lifetime following the series on the
TV. My interest is in understanding and applying the fictional Romulan
Artificial Gravity Well through the abstract math of magic square
constant sharing. Looking forward to making a concerted effort to
complete experiments and prototype during my secondment."
"I'll do this in Rhyme, It won't take longBut I want to feel like I belong.To prance about like a ten-year-old,To roleplay in the stories I'm told.To be in a place, Where fun never endsAnd to also be with likeminded friends.Roddenberry's dream ... he said to explore,I'm sure this will happenabord the Centaur.
is a special bond with the right crew that we all feel when we watch
Star Trek. We see it in the characters, no matter their differences ...
like Spock and McCoy who are such opposites but have one of the closest
bonds in all of the stories. It's nice to know we're all here for each
other. I see the creativity and goodnatured spirit of our crew
and I can see it overflowing into our real world as well as the world
of imagination we create. We are a beacon for creative minds,
inquisitive minds, and most of all diversity and acceptance. That is
what the Centaur is for me.‟
I like spaceships.
