Mission: Fleet Patch a Success!

Last November, our Pennsylvania Squadron Commander, Rear Admiral (Lower Half) Zachary McCauley, had the distinct honor of attending the NASA Social MAVEN Tweet-up event at Cape Canaveral. On his journey, he handed a Fleet patch to NASA’s Social Media Director, who promised to pass it on to NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden.

Today RDML McCauley received confirmation that our little shuttle package has reached its destination! Below are an image of the patch in question before it was handed over, and the tweet of delivery confirmation! We are sad to report that we don’t have photographic evidence, but if we here at the Fleet can’t trust the guys from NASA…

Bring a little gaming to your Star Trek

 

By Captain Jondi Soper
Deputy PR Officer
Indiana Squadron

I am a gamer. A tabletop gamer, to be more specific, but I have also been a long-time Star Trek fan. I can remember, as a child, watching The Original Series on television…albeit through the fuzzy static of a television picture without cable television. I don’t know why it never occurred to me to combine my two loves, until not long ago.

Sure, I knew about all the sci-fi themed games out there (board game and tabletop RPG’s alike), but until Mayfair Games came out with the Star Trek version of Settlers of Catan, it never occurred to me to look for Star Trek themed games. Continue reading
