The 1701st Fleet (herein referred to as ‘The Fleet’) is a Star Trek based costuming club and fan organization. Members of The Fleet purchase and/or create (and wear) the various costumes worn by the characters of the Star Trek franchise, which includes but is not limited to the films, comics, books, games, and television shows based on Star Trek. The U.S.S. Navras, which serves as the flagship of The Fleet, initially began in 2010 as a handful of gamers from the massively multiplayer online roleplaying game known as Star Trek Online, who wanted to do more than simply create a gaming guild. In May of 2010, the U.S.S. Navras launched as a chapter of STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. By 2013, the U.S.S. Navras had multiplied in membership to become the largest chapter of STARFLEET, and subsequently ended their association with the organization to become a fully independent costuming fan club. Although the group started in the Dallas/Fort Worth region of Texas, The Fleet is now a worldwide costuming club, and has become the premier costuming club of the Star Trek community. Since its inception, The Fleet has been a volunteer club of costume enthusiasts and fans who enjoy, express, and share their interests of costuming and Star Trek with others in the fan community. The members of The Fleet hold no rights to the characters or terminology and recognize that it is a privilege to wear these costumes and appear at the events that we do. The Fleet also acknowledges that while in costume we represent the Star Trek universe and as such accept the responsibility to behave professionally and civilly while in public. This charter serves to define what The Fleet is, what it shall be, and to set down guidelines for the operations within this group.
The 1701st Fleet is a Star Trek based costuming fan group in which people of diverse backgrounds with and interest in Star Trek can interact socially and recreationally. By representing the fictional Star Trek universe, we will pool our efforts and collective talents to assist in various charitable works in an effort to promote the late Gene Roddenberry’s dream of the best for all of humanity.
The vision of The Fleet is to promote a sense of camaraderie for all of its members, and to bring the level of Star Trek costuming to the same quality as similar groups within the Star Wars costuming community, as well as promoting goodwill worldwide through works of charity and volunteerism.
The Fleet values each member regardless of sex, race, religion, creed, nationality, sexual orientation, age, physical handicap, or financial status. We value the sense of “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations” as well as the desire to make the world around us a better place for every member of humanity.
ARTICLE I: MEMBERSHIP – Back to Top
The 1701st Fleet is an inclusive, equal-opportunity fan club. We will not discriminate members on the basis of sex, race, religion, creed, nationality, sexual orientation, age (as long as the minimum age of at least 18 years or higher if required by local law has been reached), physical handicap, or financial status. The Fleet will not tolerate any type of discrimination amongst its members. Membership in the Fleet is privilege, not a right, and membership (or applications for membership) may be denied, suspended, or revoked, for causes such as, but not limited to, violations of the Fleet Code of Conduct (ARTICLE VIII). In order to become a full member of The Fleet, an applicant must be of legal age and pay annual membership dues, as elaborated upon in the following requirements:
1. The applicant must be a legal adult. World-wide age varies, therefore the minimum age for membership in The Fleet is at least 18 years or higher if required by local law. Individuals under the age of 18 are encouraged to participate in the Fleet Cadet Corps program, until they are of age to become a full member of The Fleet.
2. The applicant must remit an annual membership dues payment within a timely manner to prevent the expiration of his or her membership with The Fleet.
a. Membership Dues will be retained by The Fleet strictly for the purpose of covering administrative and operational costs, such as funding the creation of materials needed for advertising, recruiting, and merchandising.
b. Personal use of Fleet Funding will not be tolerated at any time, by any member of The Fleet, for any reason. The funds retained are strictly for the purpose of group funding, and nothing further.
c. Unless stated otherwise, Membership Dues are $10.00 (USD) for the first year of membership, and $5.00 (USD) each year thereafter. Exceptions to this are Family Membership Plans, which allow $2.00 extra to be added to the main dues payment, per family member.
3. All members must adhere to the policies and practices of The Fleet, and must not violate the Fleet Code of Conduct.
4. All members choosing to wear or pursue a Star Trek universe costume will adhere to the Costuming Standards & Requirements as set forth by The Fleet.
5. All members must meet the minimum activity requirements.
a. Attend or participate in at least one sanctioned 1701st Fleet event per calendar year. Examples include but are not limited to the following:
1. Appearing in Fleet activities (table duty, group photos, parades, volunteering at a location) in an approved costume or other approved Fleet apparel at a convention or other appearance. NOTE: simply showing up at a con in a random costume not approved by The Fleet will not count toward event participation.
2. Participating in online correspondence with other members of The Fleet.
b. *These minimum Activity Requirements will be administered justly and taking into consideration that this is just a hobby and that real life happens.* The Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer determine whether a member is active, even if they do not meet all Minimum Activity Requirements.

For logistical purposes, geographical territories have been divided into quadrants. Depending on a member’s physical location, he/she may be a member of one of four quadrants: Alpha Quadrant (The Americas), Beta Quadrant (Afro-Euro-Asia), Delta Quadrant (Antarctica), or Gamma Quadrant (Australia).
Geographical regions within each quadrant are referred to as Contingents. Each Contingent is represented by two central points of contact: the LCO and the LXO. In the United States, a Contingent shall be no larger than one state in size.
Chapters of The Fleet operate autonomously, and at the pleasure of each chapter’s Commanding Officer. Subsequently, each chapter is entitled to its own policies/procedures, so long as those policies/procedures are within the boundaries of the Fleet Charter.
Shuttles of The Fleet operate autonomously, and at the pleasure of each shuttle’s Commanding Officer. Subsequently, each shuttle is entitled to its own policies/procedures, so long as those policies/procedures are within the boundaries of the Fleet Charter.
Specialty Groups (clubs within a club) are allowed within the 1701st Fleet at the discretion of the Fleet Commanding Officer, and are subject to their own policies and chain of command, and may not necessarily be held to the Costuming Standards as defined in ARTICLE VI of the Fleet Charter.
ARTICLE III: OFFICES – Back to Top
The Fleet Founder, Cody R. Glenn, indefinitely retains the full ownership and intellectual property rights of the 1701st Fleet, and any materials (logos, designs, or literary works) created herein.

In addition to this, Local Commanding Officers are obligated to represent their respective contingents as members of their respective Quadrant Council.
- Local Commanding Officer (LCO): The LCO is appointed by the FCO, and is the central point of contact for his/her local Contingent and all chapters/members therein. The LCO is responsible for the operations of the Contingent and the coordination of events that occur within the Contingent’s boundaries.

ARTICLE IV: CHAPTERS AND SHUTTLES – Back to Top
Shuttles are considered Chapters-In-Training, and are chosen on a quarterly basis, in accordance with the 1701st Fleet Shuttle Program. Shuttles do not have the right to be referred to as Chapters of the 1701st Fleet, but do retain the right to earn Chapter status by consistent improvement and activity within their crew.
Chapters will be added to The Fleet on an as-needed basis only, which will be determined at the discretion of the Fleet Senior Staff, with the Fleet Commanding Officer retaining the right to veto the decision.
Existing and Pre-established Chapters of other fan groups and organizations may be permitted to become Chapters of the 1701st Fleet, at the discretion of the Fleet Senior Staff, with the Fleet Commanding Officer retaining the right to veto the decision at any time. Existing and pre-established Chapters may be required to adhere to the 1701st Fleet Refit Program before being considered a Chapter of the 1701st Fleet.
New Members of the Fleet will be assigned to their local 1701st Fleet Contingent, but must request assignment to a Shuttle/Chapter of The Fleet if they so wish to join one. Assignment requests may be approved or denied on the decision of the respective Shuttle/Chapter’s Commanding Officer.
Anyone not assigned to a Shuttle/Chapter of the 1701st Fleet will be considered members of a de-facto Chapter, referred to as the ‘Fleet Shipyard’. Members assigned to The Shipyard will be represented by and report directly to Fleet Command, who will act as de-facto Chapter Officers, to guarantee fair representation to the General Unassigned Membership.
Members may transfer from one Shuttle/Chapter to another, at the approval of that Shuttle/Chapter’s Commanding Officer. Fleet Members are only permitted to transfer their Shuttle/Chapter assignment once every 60 days, to prevent abuse of the ability to transfer.
In any instance where the Command Staff of one Shuttle/Chapter believes that another Shuttle/Chapter has poached members from them, the members in question will immediately be assigned to the ‘Fleet Shipyard’ for 30 days, before being transferred to the Shuttle/Chapter of their choice.
Shuttles/Chapters retain the right to charge monthly or annual Membership Dues, outside of the Membership Dues required by the 1701st Fleet. Shuttle/Chapter Dues are the responsibility of their respective Commanding Officers, and if they are required, will be paid directly to the Commanding Officer or other Shuttle/Chapter Officer as designated by that Shuttle/Chapter’s Commanding Officer.
Shuttle/Chapter Dues DO NOT affect Membership Dues required by the 1701st Fleet, which must be paid to the 1701st Fleet.
ARTICLE V: CHAIN OF COMMAND – Back to Top
A member’s first stop in the Chain of Command should always be with his/her Shuttle/Chapter Officers, in accordance with the policies/procedures of his/her assigned Shuttle/Chapter. In any instance where the member is not assigned to a Shuttle/Chapter the member may then approach their Contingent’s Local Commanding Officer.
Each Shuttle/Chapter Commanding Officer, as well as all Local Commanding Officers report directly to the Fleet Command Staff.
ARTICLE VI: COSTUME STANDARDS & REQUIREMENTS – Back to Top
The 1701st Fleet celebrates crating, owning, and wearing the various costumes of the Star Trek franchise, including The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, all twelve movies, Star Trek Online, and some custom creations, just to name a few. To capture the magic of these costumes, our goal will always be the cleanest and most accurate presentation and portrayal of these costumes.
It is not necessary to own a Star Trek costume to be a member of The Fleet. However, it is encouraged, and any costume worn while representing The Fleet as a member at any event or appearance must be approved by the Costume Approval Committee (CAC).
Costume Approval Certifications
- TS Certification (Television Series): The costume appeared in one or more episodes of one of the officially produced television series.
- MP Certification (Motion Pictures): The costume appeared in one or more of the officially produced motion pictures.
- EU Certification (Expanded Universe): The costume appeared in one or more of the official video games, comic books, or other sources.
- FD Certification (Fan Derivative): The costume is a custom fabrication, considered a fan derivative, and may represent an alternate universe or timeline.
Approval Certification Levels
- Mark III: The costume is equal in quality and accuracy to the costumes produced for the actors/actresses portraying characters throughout the franchise.
- Mark II: The costume is greater in quality and accuracy to the costumes produced by companies such as Rubies or Cosplaysky.
- Mark I: The costume is equal in quality and accuracy to the costumes produced by companies such as Rubies or Cosplaysky.
Anything found to be less than a Mark I certification in terms of quality and/or accuracy will not receive an Approval Certification from the CAC. Note that an FD Approval Certification is granted purely at the discretion of both the FCO and FXO, and that the CAC cannot grant approval to these costumes without first consulting the Chain of Command. This is for the purpose of keeping uniforms semi-consistent and allowing our members to remain at least partially recognizable as members of the club. Special uniforms that are strictly associated with another club or group will not be approved. Mark II and Mark III costumes may be given access to additional/exclusive resources/rewards in exchange for their exceptional costuming efforts.
All costumes must be within the confines of decency and feasibility. (Decency is defined as being without profane or vulgar features or statements and must be appropriate for young children). Feasibility is judged on the basis of how close the costume appears to something that has been or would be shown in the Star Trek franchise. Subsequently, this immediately eliminates “far out” concepts such as cross-over costumes (Steampunk Star Trek, etc.). This also means that everyday real-world items must not be present on the costume, such as cellular telephones, Bluetooth headsets, sunglasses, walkmans or portable CD/MP3 players, etc. Eyeglasses, walking canes, breathing tubes, braces, crutches, and other medically-oriented real-world accessories will always be taken into consideration and excluded from this rule.
If the CAC denies a costume, they will also provide a list of missing items/explanation why to the applicant. If an applicant wishes to appeal a denial or classification, they should send an e-mail to the Fleet Commanding Officer at email@example.com. The Fleet Commanding Officer has final say over all approvals and appeals. All appeals must be acknowledged within 10 days and a ruling made within 20 days.
If a Local Commanding Officer believes that an approved costume in their region does not meet the costume standards under which it was originally judged, or believes that a denied costume does, in fact, meet the standards, they may request that the CAC rejudge the costume. The LCO should contact the member(s) in question with any concerns first. If the member believes that the LCO’s opinion of the costume is in error or they do not make the changes, they should be notified when the request is made for official rejudging. Any such request must include the specific concerns with the costume. Reasons that a costume may require rejudging include but are not limited to: disrepair, no longer fits member, member no longer owns costume, fabric improperly represented by submission photos, and/or details relevant to standards improperly represented in submission photos.
If the CAC judges a costume to no longer meet current standards, the member will have 3 months to make appropriate changes or the costume will lose its Approval Certification. Until the changes are made, the costume may not be used for events or appearances requiring costumes.
- Members of the CAC, under the guide of the CCAC, will publish and maintain a Source Material Manual, to collect and distribute source/reference comparisons for Star Trek costumes, as well as maintain the Source Material Manual to make sure that all information remains up to date with current Fleet standards.
- All costumes submitted to the CAC will be held to a majority vote of the CAC. The final vote will constitute the determination of that costume’s Certification Status.
- The CAC will consist of six voluntary members with voting rights. The CCAC’s vote will only be required in an instance of a tie.
- Materials for the costume must look similar to items in the costume’s source/reference. Materials and craftsmanship must be of a professional quality.
- A costume cannot simply be a collection of found clothing (i.e. a bathrobe does not qualify as a Vulcan robe).
- The costume should look professional, be clean, in good condition, and fit appropriately (with weathering/wear only where appropriate).
Costumes can be removed from the website under the following conditions:
- The owner of the costume requests that the costume be removed.
- The owner of the costume submits update/new pictures to replace the old ones.
- It is discovered that the member was a minor at the time of membership and lied about his/her age in order to gain membership. (See ARTICLE IX: Disciplinary Actions)
- It is discovered that the member manipulated the photo in any way (other than red-eye removal) in order to gain an Approval Certification.
ARTICLE VII: RANKS AND TITLES – Back to Top
Ranks exist within The Fleet in a reward capacity only. That is to say that a member’s rank holds no bearing within the Chain of Command, and may not be used to dictate authority over another member of The Fleet. Because those carrying a higher rank within The Fleet should be more knowledgeable about The Fleet and its inner workings, and should be able to answer more questions to New Members or Prospective Members, many ranks require the completion of Fleet Academy Exams which are designed specifically for the purpose of teaching members about the inner workings of The Fleet. Please note that the following includes the requirements necessary to attain a new rank, but that meeting (or exceeding) these requirements do not guarantee you a promotion to their associated ranks.
Upon reaching the age of 18 years old (or higher, if required by local law), anyone participating in the Cadet Corps Program will “age out” of the program and receive the opportunity to become an Active Member of The Fleet for half-price of the first year’s annual dues. Membership Renewals will not be discounted.
Members wishing to participate as an Auxiliary Members will be limited in rank, regardless of how long they have been associated with the club. Those wishing to attain a new rank will be referred to the application process, to become an Active Member of the Fleet.
For the purposes of The Fleet, the only difference between Commissioned Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers is the choice of rank structure within the organization. Neither Commissioned Officers nor Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) hold any authority or bearing over the other, and a member’s choice of rank structure WILL NOT exclude them from participating at any level of The Fleet.
In addition to this, members may choose at any time to be transferred from Commissioned to Non-Commissioned status, or vice-versa. Members choosing to transfer their rank structure from Officer to Enlisted, or vice-versa, may not make this transfer more than once per year, to prevent confusion.
Equivalent Specialty Group ranks are outlined by each Specialty Group, with the approval of the Fleet Commanding Officer, and may be used in place of the above ranks.
Pending the approval of the Fleet Commanding Officer, members previously belonging to STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc., may have their existing ranks grandfathered into The Fleet, upon showing proof of their resignation of membership (and therefore, their transfer to The Fleet) to STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. In instances where the previous rank is incompatible with the rank structure of The Fleet, the Fleet Commanding Officer may assign the existing member the Fleet equivalent rank.
Titles and Positions
Titles and Positions within The Fleet will not be granted or appointed unless there is a genuine need for that specific position. This is designed to prevent confusion. Additionally, if a Title/Position exists within The Fleet that is no longer necessary, it will be dissolved indefinitely, until such time as a need arises to reestablish it.
ARTICLE VIII: BEHAVIOR AND CODE OF CONDUCT – Back to Top
If, at any time, an Auxiliary, Cadet, or Active Member of The Fleet is found to be guilty of (or facing legal action in the form of) any charge which constitutes a Sex Offender status, he/she will be removed from The Fleet with no questions asked.
If, at any time, an Auxiliary, Cadet, or Active Member of The Fleet is found to be guilty of Sexual Harassment (as determined by the Fleet Commanding Officer, with the assistance of the Fleet Provost Marshal), he/she faces immediate removal from The Fleet.
Code of Conduct:
- I will always behave in a manner that brings credit to the Fleet, my Chapter, and myself.
- I will always praise in public and critique in private.
- I will show courtesy to my subordinates, fellow officers, and superior officers at all times.
- I will never assume, but always verify.
- I will be resolute in the performance of my duty and the execution of Fleet policy and regulation.
- I will always defuse confrontations, not cause them.
- I will listen to both sides of a dispute and act upon fact, not innuendo.
- I will strive for impartiality and fairness in judgment and disqualify myself from decisions where my judgment may be compromised.
- I will be the first to praise and the last to criticize.
- I will always strive to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
ARTICLE IX: INVESTIGATIONS AND DISCIPLINARY ACTION – Back to Top
Violations of ARTICLE VIII of the Fleet Charter will be handled on an as-needed basis by the Fleet Commanding Officer, upon each instance of a Violation. Disciplinary actions relating to a Code of Conduct Violation will be the decision of the Fleet Commanding Officer, except in occasions where the violation in question is presented to the Fleet Senior Staff for a private ruling.
Investigations into violations of Fleet Policies or Membership Violations will be initiated upon orders from the Fleet Commanding Officer, and conducted impartially by the Fleet Provost Marshal, who will conduct a thorough investigation of the incident(s) in question and report their findings back to the FCO for a final ruling.
Investigations conducted by the Fleet Provost Marshal will be documented, complete with names, dates, times, and pertinent information/evidence related to each investigation, and will remain on file for seven (7) calendar years.
Disciplinary action may include the loss of Approval Certification status, mandated Fleet Academy course assignment, loss of or demotion in rank, or suspension/expulsion of Active Membership.
ARTICLE X: MERCHANDISE AND BRANDING – Back to Top
Any item bearing the Fleet Logo must be approved by Fleet Command, to assure the quality of said items. Fleet Merchandise will be attained and made available upon approval of Fleet Command only.
ARTICLE XI: POLICIES AND AMENDMENTS – Back to Top
AMENDMENT 06.22.13: Active Members holding multiple positions on the Fleet Senior Staff will not, under any circumstances, be allowed multiple votes in any elections/polls/votes held by the Fleet Senior Staff.
AMENDMENT 09.14.15: Membership Resignations and Positional Resignations are final, unless ruled otherwise by the Fleet Founder. Rulings will be made on a case by case basis, and cannot be overturned.
