Having had units all over the UK from London to Edinburgh, Starfleet Command has been going strong for more than three decades. With resources spread throughout the UK, the Admiralty board held a fleet wide consultation throughout 2015 and towards the end of te year both members and the board opted to make the fleet stronger by merging units to bring the fleet together.
While we expect things to change over the coming years as we work hard on restructuring and modernising the fleet to come in line with todays fanbase and membership, we stand proud with two large regional units in the North and South.
Every Star Trek fans dreams of being the captain of their own Starship and while running an SFC Quadrant 2 Unit is (probably) easier than commanding a starship, both roles require commitment and dedication.
After a massive re-orginisation of our fleet, Quadrant 2 has cleared space for new units to come together with a combination of new and veteran members and we’re laying open the opportunity to sit at the captains table and create your own corner of Starfleet.
Unit’s are, and always will be, the core of SFC. It is within them that members can indulge in their shared interests for Star Trek and science fiction while enjoying the company of fellow fans and like minded people. At their best, units are a unique and welcoming social group that can be as rewarding as they are challenging.
Unit CO’s are considered senior members of SFC who take command of their local area’s, organise events, meetups and all aspects of operations. CO’s not only have the backing and support of the Admiralty Board, but access to supplies, information and can help to shape the future of the club and our policies moving forward.
After a lot of planning and discussion, the first of these new units found it’s launch in 2018 paving the way forward for future generations of SFC to follow their lead and build a new vibrant community in your area.
If you think you have what it takes to organise and lead, Q2 are looking for the right people in several hot spots to take the challenge and offer extensive help and support in taking on ‘the chair’.
Our ‘Command Training’ program is available to any and all officers of Quadrant 2, further information can be found in our Members Resources section or by consulting with the Admiralty Board.
Over the years many units have come and gone. Units that have disbanded or have been decommissioned are traditionally sent to our Clydeside Dockyards. While this is not an exhaustive list, the following decommissioned units mark some of our most recent, or in several cases most noteworthy, the following units remain permanently stationed in holding.
