Alberni Trekkies celebrate 40 years of Starfleet.

Alberni celebrates 40 years of Starfleet

Alberni Deep Space Port members are featured in the recently released video celebrating 40 years of Starfleet.

Alberni Deep Space Port members are featured in the recently released video celebrating 40 years of Starfleet, the International Star Trek Fan Association.  They’re the people waving  the Canadian flag, representing Port Alberni and Canada.

When the call went out in spring, members and allies trooped down to the waterfront on a June evening, recorded the video clips, and beamed them over to project coordinator Jonathan Lane.

As clips were received from international chapters, preliminary edits were posted to YouTube.

The recently-released final cut features Starfleet chapters from around the world, including the Canadian contingent from Port Alberni.  Set to the Pharrell Williams hit song, Happy, members came together to celebrate the largest Star Trek fan association in the world, and show the fun of being Star Trek fans.

Since 1974, Starfleet has given Star Trek fans a way to meet each other, make friends, have fun, give back to their communities, and show that the dream of Gene Roddenberry can live long and prosper.

Meetings are on the second Thursday of the month, from 6:00-8 p.m. at Echo Centre.

Come celebrate all things Trek and support local charities.
