STARFLEET COMMAND F.A.Q.

What is Starfleet Command?
Starfleet Command is a science fiction fan club started in 1974 in Lubbock Texas. In the many years since then, it has grown a great deal. Today, the main area, Quadrant One which encompasses all of the United State, Canada and South America, now has two sister quadrants, Quadrant Two, the UK, and Quadrant Three, the Republic of Singapore. In Quadrant One the club exists at three basic levels.

1. The first level is the local ship (unit). The local ship is the backbone of the organization. Most local ships are involved in their local communities in various ways. Ship Commanding Officers report to their respective Starbase Commanding Officers.
2. The second level is the regional level (Starbase). There are five Starbase Commanding Officers and each has an area of quadrant one they cover. The Starbase Commanding Officer’s main job is to support their local units as best as they can. They also serve as a go between the local units and the Admiralty Board. Starbase Commanding Officers report to the Deputy Fleet Commander.
3. The highest level is the Admiralty Board and the highest level on the board is the Fleet Commander. The main function of the Admiralty Board is, but not limited to, govern the Quadrant, put out the Quadrant’s newsletter, process paperwork in regards to promotions / new members / new ships, and support the quadrant as a whole.

DUES
Are dues charged?
Dues are charged. This information can be found at http://www.starfleet-command.com/membership.htm

What do dues pay for?
Among other things, to cover the cost of the production and mailing of the Quadrant’s newsletter mailed out three times a year, the construction of new membership packets / promotion certificates / new duty orders / and associated postage related fees. Dues also cover the awards given out at the annual SFCQ1 Awards Ceremony. No one in Starfleet Command Quadrant One receives compensation in return for his or her participation. Participation is strictly on a volunteer basis.

How do I join Starfleet Command?
There are several different ways to join Starfleet Command, but before you do, there are some things to consider. You may wish to join a local ship, join your local Starbase, or maybe even start your own ship or outpost. After you decide that, we have many other options for you to decide.
Here at Starfleet Command, we offer both enlisted ranks (I.E. Chief O’Brien) and officer ranks. On top of that, Starfleet Command offers both of these career choices in our Starfleet Command and our Starfleet Command Marines Divisions. It should be noted that at a later date, if you change your mind, you may change between the careers and sections.
However, to take the officer path for either, it does require that the member take some tests (at no cost) where the enlisted paths do not. If you have questions, the Chief of Membership Services can help info.sfcq1@gmail.com
As mentioned above, if there are no units in your area and you are not interested in starting a new one, you can join the regional Starbase or an online chapter for the area you reside in.
