The USS Renaissance NCC-74874 is a chapter of STARFLEET International Inc. The Chapter is correspondence-based, with members all over North America. Canadian Provinces are represented by Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and Newfoundland. Being truly International, the USS Renaissance proudly has members from Canada, United States of America and as far away as the United Kingdom.
The chapter has a focus on community service through fundraising, volunteerism, and advocacy. Past events include fundraisers for animal rescue and shelters, blood donations, homelessness, and food drives.
Members participate in a variety of events, such as: virtual games & trivia, watch parties, cosplay, and conventions. There are also active chats with the crew on Facebook Messenger and Discord.
The Star Trek aspect is fan-based. The “Ship” is a Sovereign Class Starship that is primarily a Science Vessel. Some modifications were made to the ship due to the Borg invasion of the Sol Sector. The club uses STARFLEET ranks, which are fictitious, and enhance the experience. We also have specialties and Billets such as Captain, XO, Chief Operations Officer, Chief of Security, Chief Medical Officer, and more – just like in Star Trek!
Being part of STARFLEET International allows you to take courses through STARFLEET Academy, leading to “degree” programs and a path to promotion. STARFLEET also offers a Medical, Marine and a Special Ops path. Even your pets are welcome in Starfleet.
Of course, you can join to just be a part of STARFLEET and enjoy Trek with other fans of the 55+ year (since 1966) phenomenon.
