charge for membership and all profits raised by our activities go to
Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity we are very proud to be affiliated
with, and a number of other smaller charities. (Please see our CHARITY
WORK page for full details.)
We are an independant group of Star
Trek fans (a Star Trek club if you like, although we're not that
formal). Our message board is a friendly place for Star Trek related
chat, but we also meet up at events including those that we run
ourselves. We have worked with Leicester Space Centre on Star Trek
themed weekends but our flagship event is the Starbase
that, since 2007, has raised over £20,000 for our charities.
So whether it's joining us at our next event or
just dropping by our forum, we look forward to meeting you.
management team of Starbase 24 can be contacted either via the Facebook
group or by emailing Rear Admiral Kehlan on firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make a donation quickly and easily
Starbase 24 is an independent group. It is not associated or
affiliated with any other group, company or association. Its purpose is to
raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support and other charities while having fun
and celebrating our love of science fiction at the same time. Its 'Command
Team' is made of people who receive no remuneration or benefits from the group.
(We even pay for our own tickets to the Sci-Fi Banquet.) Thank you.
We are not
a fan club in the sense that members have to sign up. Everyone is
on our Facebook pages and at our events, regardless of other clubs or groups
they belong to. Everyone is encouraged to submit ideas and thoughts.
command team are a group of individuals who facilitate before, during
and after all our events and projects. Access to this group is given at
the discretion of the heads of the team – Kehlan and the Admiral.
The Starbase 24 Charter
mission of Starbase 24 is to provide a friendly, fun Star Trek
experience and to promote the ideals of fellowship and charity promoted
by Gene Roddenberry’s vision.
Aims & Objectives:
To raise funds via our annual banquet and other fundraising measures to assist existing charities working in two main areas:
Welfare: To help relieve suffering and improve the lives of people
living with cancer and to inspire others to do the same.
- Animal Welfare: To assist with the relief of animal suffering.
To help educate the public on the issues of importance to both charity groups.
To offer support and assistance to other charities/good causes on an ad hoc basis depending on need at the time.
provide a free and accessible place for anyone to discuss Star Trek
and/or related subjects and to ensure that our community, whether
online or in the real world, remains a safe, welcoming and fun place
that is family friendly and free of bullying, harassment and
discrimination on grounds of religion, ethnic origin, gender/sexuality
To reach out and form friendships with other
like-minded Star Trek and Sci-fi groups/clubs, both here in the UK and
across the world and to take part in fun, collaborative projects with
other groups which achieve mutual goals.
We enjoy good
relations with almost every fan club in the UK and even some beyond,
and we will happily consider collaborating on any Star Trek fan
project. However, we do not wish to become a permanent part of a larger
fan club, and intend to retain our autonomy for the foreseeable future.
By the same token,
if asked we are only too happy to advise or assist you if you are
running a fan club or trying to set up an event or meeting. We are also
thankful for any promotion of Starbase 24 events, especially our
banquet. That being said, we have no desire to take over/assimilate
your club as a chapter or sub group of Starbase 24.
We have a sister
club, the USS Obready in the Eastern townships of Canada and enjoy
close friendships with other groups in the UK, most notably Region 20
of Starfleet International. These clubs remain completely independant
of Starbase 24 but enjoy a special friendship for the mutal support and
benefit of all involved. We are also happy to hold out the
hand of friendship to any other group or club that wishes it.
If you are a club looking for new members - or an individual looking
for a club to join, let us know and we will do our best to help put you
in touch with each other.
