27th Anniversary Dinner Celebration

For 27 years, the USS Continuum has been in operation as a commissioned chapter of STARFLEET! All those who attended on December 4, 2020 will now remember that day as when we came together to celebrate our crew, our friendships and our ship.
That evening, we recognized crew members who have advanced in rank over the year and ones that achieved special accolades. We also used this occasion, so close to the earth’s Christmas celebration, to exchange gifts with one another.

With the recent news of Pelicon and Pensacon 2021 being postponed we are left wondering, what now?
What other sci-fi entertainment choices are there?
USS Continuum is here with an answer! Join us this year as we go into uncharted ‘space’ with group outings, ‘Ten Forward’, Display Workshops, Community projects and more to come!
We love our Trek but we welcome one and all
From all ends of the Galaxy!

Anniversary Dinner with the Crew

The Continuum is back!

After a crazy start of the year, the Continuum is slowly (and cautiously) getting back together:

  • Meetings on the first Friday at PoFolks have resumed. For those that would rather join us online, however, we will have a Facebook Messenger Room that you can join. (You don’t have to have a Facebook profile in order to do so). Please contact Jay Gallops to receive an invite or more information.
  • We’re in the process of possibly updating our governing documents. The last time we did so was way back in 2012, and we feel it’s past time to fully reexamine them.
  • We hope to have ongoing display workshops. At Pensacon last February, we noticed a few displays that needed repairs, and we’d also like to build new props and displays for the public to enjoy as our time and finances allow.
  • Plans are still underway for the annual Costume Bowl charity fundraiser to support Manna Food Pantries and Gulf Coast Kid’s House. We sincerely hope we’ll be able to safely do so on Sunday, October 4 at Cordova Lanes Bowling Center as since 2015, this has been a fun, successful event to support those in need within our community.
  • Other events will resume on a case-by-case basis.

As always, we strongly encourage you to follow the appropriate health guidelines before deciding to participate in any of our events. But we hope you’ll do what you can, whenever you can.

Our website is changing!  A new theme!  New updates!  A few pages here very possibly will be going away.  A few others might be added.  We hope that’ll be easier to keep up with all the amazing things the USS Continuum will be doing in the next few months.

 

Update on Events: April 2019
Update on Events: April 2019 avatar

April is the month of changes. Almost every one of our regularly scheduled events has altered in some ways at some new ones have been added. Here’s a list of everything you need to know:

The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) amongst the stars
Ahead Warp Factor One!

APRIL MEETING & “STAR TREK DAY” 2019.

Typically held on the first Wednesday of the month, we’re swapping it with our “Dinner at Ten Forward” for April.

For the past few years, we’ve made it a tradition to celebrate “Star Trek Day” (aka “First Contact Day”) on or around April 5. But we don’t like to have too many events too close to each other if we can help it. And so, our “Star Trek Day Celebration” will start at 6:30 p.m., Friday, April 5 at the Cactus Flower Cafe, 3425 N 12th Ave.

Our meeting this month this month has been moved to 6 p.m., Monday, April 15 at our typical location — PoFolks, located on 6895 N 9th Ave. We’ll resume our typical schedule for meetings on Wednesday, May 1.

Okay, obviously, I can be terrible at making frequent log entries. 

It’s been a while since I’ve reported here as to what the Continuum has been doing.  And I’ll be honest: in the last couple of months, we’ve been a little break from major activities.  We’ve kept up with our meetings and our “Dinners at Ten Forward” monthly social but little else. 

But that’s about to change. Continue reading
