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 independent group of Star Trek fans (a Star Trek club if you like, although we're not that formal). Our Facebook page is a friendly place for Star Trek related chat, but we also meet up at events including those that we run ourselves. Our flagship event is the Klingon Banquet that, since 2007, has raised over 25,000 for our charities.

So whether it's joining us at our next event or visiting us on Facebook, we look forward to meeting you.

Movember

Hey guys,

Chris Bowen is taking part in Movember ... growing a 'tash to raise funds for men's health and save lives. Here is a message from Chris, explaining what it's about. If anyone wants to support him with a small donation that would be greatly appreciated:

 Hey,

Have you noticed that I look a bit different lately? I'm growing my moustache for 30 days and it's not just a bold fashion statement. I'm doing it to raise funds for the Movember Foundation, and I need your support:

https://mobro.co/kristfa?mc=5

I'm supporting the Movember Foundation because they’re tackling some of the most significant health issues faced by men. Your donations will help them stop men dying too young.

There are two ways you can contribute to my Mo growing effort:

1) Donate online at https://mobro.co/kristfa?mc=5

2) Or, write a cheque to 'Movember' referencing my registration ID (7797317) and mail it to:

PO Box 68600, Movember Europe, London EC1P 1EF

Learn about the important work Movember is funding and the impact your donation will have: http://uk.movember.com/programs/cause?mc=5

There's a lot riding on this moustache, so thank you. I appreciate your support.

 

M's Skydive

The lovely 'M', aka Marie Smith, is doing a skydive to raise money for cancer. For those who don't know, 'M' is a cancer survivor and continues her fight against the disease. Please will you stand by her in her fight and offer a little sponsorship? Thank you.

P.S. At the moment, one NewZzealand dollar is worth about 50p. If anyone wants to donate but prefers to use PayPal or doesn't want to give their credit card details, you are welcome to send the donation to the Starbase and I will make sure it gets to Marie.

 My Story

I was diagnosed with stomach cancer 3 and half years ago now. Chemo, stomach removed and further chemo I'm still here fighting, despite being given a 15% chance of surviving five years.

I'm over half way through the years I was given but I'm not letting them stop me. With the help of my loving partner I've been working on my bucket list and a parachute jump has always been up there ever since I saw my Dad do his first jump.

So when the Cancer Society Canterbury - West Coast Division put up about their Jump for Cancer 2017, I knew this was a cause I had to support.

 

Our next event ...

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 Banquet.) Thank you.

Command Structure

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 & Objectives:

To raise funds via our annual banquet and other fundraising measures to assist existing charities working in two main areas:

  • Cancer 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.

To 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 or disability.

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.


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.
