Welcome to the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk (StarFleet registry NCC-1659).|
We are the Raleigh, NC, chapter of StarFleet International, a world-wide association of fans with a common interest in Star Trek and other science fiction. More than a fan club, our goal is to celebrate the ideas expresssed in the Star Trek universe through active participation in community service activities throughout the greater Triangle area.
We've now followed up with just about everyone who left us a name and e-mail address at GalaxyCon Raleigh 2019. Unfortunately, we couldn't read some of the e-mail addresses and weren't able to contact you. If you haven't heard from us at this point, please use the Contact Us link to verify that we have your correct e-mail address.... Thanks!

Welcome to a (slightly) redesigned web site! The changes are fairly obvious -- new "curves" at the top of the page and a more proper typeface to get our LCARS interface closer to Trek. Also added is consistant title bar text across all the web pages and "free up" the body for the actual content.
.... There's also a lot of new content -- the first 2019 issue of our newsletter (volume 30!); pics from our anniversary dinner; and the premiere of our next on-line story, "Final Mission." (This story is planned to have monthly installments through its conclusion, so be sure to keep an eye out for them!)
The older updates are listed in a separate update page.
