The 643rd Dragon Wings along with the crew of the U.S.S. Continuum are working together to raise toys for the Toys For Tots program. In the two weeks after Thanksgiving of 2009 we raised a dozen toys together. We realized that if we could do that in two weeks we could do much more over a year. Will you join us?
Issue 24 of Star Trek Magazine is going to be a Klingon special.
“The 100-page Issue 24 of the official Star Trek magazine is a “Klingon Special” which has a big focus on the Klingons and the new Star Trek Online Game (featuring Klingons back as the enemy of the Federation). TrekMovie has a first look, with excerpts from an interview with DS9’s J.G. Hertzler (Martok) and also excerpts from a feature on story behind Star Trek Online. We also have covers and some inside previews.”
Welcome aboard! The U.S.S. Continuum (NCC-71821) is Northwest Florida’s premiere Star Trek and sci-fi fan organization. As a chapter of STARFLEET, the International Star Trek Fan Association, we have been named Region 2 “Ship of The Year” for 2010.
Our membership is made up of STARFLEET members and independent fans. We meet twice a month officially but can often be found taking part in other events and generally gathering to have fun.
While Star Trek is the common ground we all share, you will discover our interests and hobbies go well beyond it. We invite you to join us!
NASA has released new images of Pluto taken by the Hubble telescope. You can read the full article and see more images by clicking here.
NASA today released the most detailed set of images ever taken of the distant dwarf planet Pluto. The images taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope show an icy and dark molasses-colored, mottled world that is undergoing seasonal changes in its surface color and brightness. Pluto has become significantly redder, while its illuminated northern hemisphere is getting brighter. These changes are most likely consequences of surface ices sublimating on the sunlit pole and then refreezing on the other pole as the dwarf planet heads into the next phase of its 248-year-long seasonal cycle. The dramatic change in color apparently took place in a two-year period, from 2000 to 2002.
The Hubble images will remain our sharpest view of Pluto until NASA’s New Horizons probe is within six months of its Pluto flyby. The Hubble pictures are proving invaluable for picking out the planet’s most interesting-looking hemisphere for the New Horizons spacecraft to swoop over when it flies by Pluto in 2015.
It’s February so I don’t mind using the L word: I love Star Trek Online. I just wish I could put my bridge officers in the same uniform I’m wearing in game. Greg knows exactly how I feel. www.reallifecomics.com
