The USS Nomad NCC-72382 is a chapter of STARFLEET International Inc. The Chapter is correspondence-based, with members all over North America, including Durham, Halton, Hamilton, and Muskoka Regions in Ontario. Other provinces are represented by Manitoba and Newfoundland, Canada. Being truly International, the USS Nomad proudly has members in Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, and Washington, USA, as well.
The chapter has a focus on community service through fundraising, volunteerism, and advocacy. Past events include fundraisers for animals, blood donations, homelessness, and food drives.
Members participate in a variety of events, such as: virtual weekly trivia, watch parties, cosplay, and conventions. There are also active chats with the crew on Messenger and Discord.
The Star Trek aspect is fan-based. The “Ship” is a Sovereign Class Starship that is primarily a Science Vessel. Some modifications were made to the ship due to the Borg invasion of the Sol Sector. The club uses STARFLEET ranks, which are fictitious, and enhance the experience. We also have specialties and Billets such as Captain, XO, Chief Operations Officer, Chief of Security, Chief Medical Officer, and more – just like in Star Trek!
Being part of STARFLEET International allows you to take courses through STARFLEET Academy, leading to “degree” programs and a path to promotion. STARFLEET also offers a Marine path and a Special Ops path.
Of course, you can join to just be a part of STARFLEET and enjoy Trek with other fans of the 55-year (1966-2021) phenomenon.
