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:
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.
help educate the public on the issues of importance to both charity
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
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
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
club, the USS Obready in the Eastern townships of Canada and enjoy
close friendships with other groups in the UK. These clubs remain
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.
