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.

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:

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

I apologize for this lateness of this post, but I wanted to make you aware of a few changes to tonight’s meeting:

  • It will be at PoFolks restaurant, 6895 N 9th Ave — the same location we had our Anniversary Dinner back in December.
  • Instead of taking an hour to order food and then eat before we begin the meeting, we’ll begin our discussion soon after we order and then taking a break when the food arrives.  (Ordering is optional but appreciated).
  • If there is time remaining after the discussion, we’ll have some fun with some Star Trek trivia questions.

We have quite a lot to discuss with happenings pertaining to Pensacon later this month.  We hope you’ll join us!

Engage us at PENSACON 2018!

One of the biggest things I love about Pensacon is the opportunity to meet more Star Trek fans in the Pensacola area.  And in a little over two weeks from this writing (February 23-25), we’ll be back for Year 5!  There’s a number of ways the Continuum plans to be (or already is) involved with the Gulf Coast’s biggest sci-fi convention:

 

    1. The Guardian of Forever
    • THE GUARDIAN OF FOREVER AT PENSACOLA INTERGALACTIC AIRPORT.    Back on January 23, the Continuum revealed its new Star Trek themed display — the Guardian of Forever — at the Pensacola Intergalactic Airport’s Renaming Ceremony.  It’s located in the baggage claim area, and will remain until Monday, February 26.  Feel free to stop by to enjoy the display and take pictures.  (Many thanks to Ricky Wallace, Sarah Marie Jones, Paul Jacobs, Connie Fleming, and crew members of the Harry Mudd in the design of the Guardian and the additional displays).

     

    • THE BRIDGE AND TRANSPORTER SETS RETURN TO ATLAS OYSTER HOUSE. After you enjoy your Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Pensacon, set a course for Atlas Oyster House where our Original Series’ Captain’s Chair, Helm/Navigation Console, and Transporter Console & Pad replicas will be back!

Happy 25th Anniversary to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which premiered on this date back in 1993!
