The USS JURASSIC is a correspondence only chapter of Starfleet - The International Star Trek Fan Association. It was formed to help Trek fans (who can not or do not want to attend meetings) enjoy the fun of being in a Star Trek fan club. We have members around the world, and stay in contact with them through the newsletter (Trekosaurus), e-mail, online chats, and snail mail.

Like most other Starfleet chapters, the USS JURASSIC members hold ranks, and promotions are granted based on a points system. This points system demonstrates that a member is active in the chapter, Region, Fleet, and in their own community.

Members of the USS JURASSIC may be as active as they choose. If a member wants to get involved in the club there are many ways to do so:

  • writing and artwork for publications
  • writing letters
  • working on projects such as amateur radio
  • ship's blueprints
  • the afghan project
  • recruiting
  • recycling stamps
  • building models

or anything you can think of that your Division Chief, First Officer, or Captain approve. And we are always looking for new projects.

We also participate in field trips which everyone is invited to. These include but are not limited to things like:

  • Trips to an amusement park
  • Annual Amateur Radio Field Day weekend (last full weekend in June every year). Members spend the weekend in a park while working on the emergency amateur radio contest.
  • Annual trip to the Starfleet Region One Summit in the Spring
  • Annual trip to the Starfleet Region One Fall Conference.
  • Trips with other R/1 chapters to places like the Dayton, Ohio Air Force Museum
