As a chapter of STARFLEET, we are open to ALL types of sci-fi fans who like to meet together — in person and online – and play games, work on costumes and other displays, be involved in community service, study science, watch movies, plans events, and enjoy each other’s company!
All events listed on the “Calendar” page are open to the public. To contact any of the Continuum’s Command Staff, please check out the “Members” page.
Is it February 27, 2015 yet? I instantly went from “Preparing for Pensacon 2014″ to “Experiencing Pensacon 2014″ to “Dreaming of Pensacon 2015.”
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a week since the convention. I had intended to write this blog early as I get back into the swing of things. But just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, haven’t caught the news, haven’t been seeing billboards around Pensacola, haven’t been keeping up with fandom, etc., Pensacon is the newest convention to hit Northwest Florida.
And hit it did! With over 80 special guests and 17,000 fans in attendance, it turned out to be a huge success! Mike Ensley and his team pulled this off with a good amount of grace that made it look like running a con of this magnitude easy. And considering this is only Pensacon’s first year, that’s no small feat! The con was so well run that it was enjoyed by fans, guests, and local businesses alike.
Last week at Pensacon, members of the USS Continuum hosted “The Trek Awards 2014.”
Peter Arce, David Phillips (from the USS Jubilee), Lauren Schraer, Luci Smith, and myself presented their nominees, stating their case for each. The audience, in turn, voted on each award. Totals tabulated and presented by Christina Tuttle.
The full results (with clips) can be found here.
From the second season Star Trek: Enterprise episode “The Breach”:
For those of you who are not aware: the Continuum has its own Amazon Store. And they’re more just Star Trek here! You can also get memorabilia from Star Wars, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Marvel and DC Comics, real-life science, and more — all categorized for easy viewing. This store is frequently updated, so keep checking back for new items. Just click on the “Amazon Store” link above or go here and support the USS Continuum today!
It has been a turbulent last few weeks for us here at the Continuum. After having my computer stolen (sigh), I’ve been slowly, but surely, getting my life back in order. As we have done in years past, the Continuum has been preparing for a great and exciting 2014! And our first major event is coming up in a little over a week away.
For the past several months, the entire Pensacola area has been quite a buzz for Pensacon, happening Friday to Sunday, February 21-23, 2014 at the Pensacola Bay Center and Crowne Plaza Grand Hotel. A few of our members were even fortunate enough featured in both Pensacon commercials, which can be seen here:
Of course, the Continuum will be available throughout the weekend. Our recruiting table will have our Captain’s Chair, which we continue to improve upon :). Come see what we’ve done next! We also have a few Star Trek Playmate Collectibles from the 1990s that were looking to part with. Check out our table for more information.
We’ll also be hosting “The Trek Awards” panel, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in “Room D” of the Bay Center. What’s the most interesting piece of Trek-nology? Who made the best couple? Who were the best of friends? These questions and more will be decided by you, the audience. So come by, hear the arguments, and cast your vote!
From the second season Next Generation episode “The Measure of a Man”:
From Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home:
The Continuum is changing the day, time, and location of its meetings beginning next month. Our next scheduled one will be held at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 13, at Books-a-Million (6235 N Davis Hwy) inside the Joe Muggs’ Cafe.
If the particulars of the change prove to be successful, we’ll be moving our meetings to the 2nd Wednesday of the month beginning January 2014. As we have done in years past, there will be no meeting in December. Instead, we will have our Anniversary Dinner celebrating our commissioning — this year our 20th one — and then break for the holiday season. Keep checking back to the Continuum website for more information on the Anniversary Dinner.
At our November meeting, we will be holding our bi-annual ship elections/vote of confidences for the positions of Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, Second Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Counselor. Terms will last from January 1, 2014, to December 31, 2015.
CO and XO candidates must be Continuum and STARFLEET members for the past twelve months, be a Lieutenant, junior grade in rank or higher, and have passed Officer’s Training School and Officer’s Command College offered by STARFLEET Academy.
Candidates for the other three positions must be Continuum and STARFLEET members for the past six months.
All candidates for any of the five positions must also be at least eighteen years old.
In order to vote in these elections, crewmembers must have their Continuum and STARFLEET dues current although people can join/renew up until the day of.
This has to be one of the most heroic scenes in all of Star Trek!
When a Klingon computer virus prevents Enterprise from slowing down, Columbia has to transport their new chief engineer over in a very unique way so he can pull off an emergency save. (Don’t try this at home, kids! ).
From the fourth season Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Divergence”:
