Starbase 24 ...

... is a completely not for profit organisation. We don’t 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 Charity  Banquet 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.

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.

The Starbase 24 Charter

Mission Statement:

The 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

  1. To raise as much money as possible for the charities we support through the our Charity Banquet and secondary events.

  2. To provide a free and accessible forum for anyone to discuss Star Trek and/or related subjects - and to keep that forum a safe, welcoming and fun place that is family friendly.  Role pLay is encouraged but not compulsory.  All are welcome regardless of real world issues such as religion, ethnic origin, gender/sexuality, disability etc.  Bullying is not tolerated in any shape or form.

  3. To reach out and form lasting friendships with other like-minded Star Trek and sci-fi groups/clubs both here in the UK and across the world. We aim to offer an open forum for other Star Trek groups to reasonably advertise their events or meet ups and to direct interested parties to the above when looking for new local events and conventions. To take part in fun, collaborative projects with other groups which achieve mutual goals.

Allies & Affiliates

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.
