From March to May, millions of people across this nation will take a part in “The Great American Cleanup,” a program of Keep America Beautiful. Volunteers pick up trash, organize recycling drives, plant trees, and do other projects to keep this country looking great!
The Continuum will be involved with GAC in two ways:
1) We plan to be at Pensacola’s Great American Cleanup Kick-off event on March 20 at the Hawkshaw Memorial, organized by Clean & Green.
2) From March to May, we’re asking people to submit photos on how they’re cleaning up. No matter how big the group (even if it’s just a single worker)… no matter how long they spend in a day cleaning up… no matter what the location. We’re wanting pictures as to who was involved, where they were, and what they did. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re looking to have this site covered, showing how we’re cleaning up!
In September 2008, the Trek-themed attraction Star Trek: The Experience closed at the Las Vegas Hilton, after running for a decade. Since that time CBS has been working on developing a new Star Trek: The Experience at a new location, and that work is still ongoing. However, they have decided that most of the assets from the first attraction wont be able to be used and so they are going to be sold off.
After Star Trek: The Experience closed its doors at the Las Vegas Hilton, the attraction was dismantled and much of what was savable was put into storage at a warehouse in Las Vegas, where it has remained. Since that time CBS has been working with the Neonopolis development in Downtown Las Vegas on a plan to put in a new Star Trek: The Experience at that location. According to CBS, they are still in the planning phase, but a decision has been made that most of what is in the warehouse will not be needed for any new Trek attraction. So they have decided to let the fans get a piece of what was Star Trek: The Experience.
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!
