Trek Night with the Atlanta
"Turn the Page I (Literary Themes)"
8:00 p.m. Friday, February 27, 2009
Hosted by and in the home of Alan Siler
2582 Addison Drive, Doraville GA 30340
join our friends, the Atlanta
OutWorlders, for a night that celebrates the quintessential
American science fiction television franchise: Star Trek.
Each month, we'll explore a different theme by seeing
episodes taken from all of the show's TV incarnations: Star
Trek, The Animated Series, The Next Generation,
Deep Space Nine, Voyager and yes... even Enterprise.
Few television shows, particularly sci-fi, have had
the impact on American culture that Star Trek has had.
For the month of January, the theme is "Turn
the Page I (Literary Themes)."
International Region 2 Summit
Friday - Sunday, March 6-8, 2009
Budget Inn & Banquet
1525 Ellis Ave, Jackson MS 39204
Phone: (601) 944-1150
The deadline to order your Summit Awards Banquet ticket is
Sunday, February 15. If you plan to attend and
haven't purchased your banquet ticket yet, please do it now! Awards
Banquet tickets can be purchased here.
Hosted by the USS Haise NCC-74664, the 2009 STARFLEET
International Region 2 Summit will be held March 6-8 in Jackson,
Mississippi. The annual Summit can be one of the most
rewarding experiences in STARFLEET. Unlike typical
conventions with Star Trek stars, a Summit is a learning
experience. Not only is it a great chance to learn
valuable skills in the various informative panels and workshops,
but it's also a great chance to make valuable friendships
with people you've only heard about through The STARFLEET
Communiqué, Region 2 Update, online and other sources.
Over 100 people from chapters throughout the Region
attend the Summit, along with some of the STARFLEET Executive
Committee, like the Commander, STARFLEET. It's a great
opportunity to learn in a very fun environment. You
will also have a chance to find out what is going on in your
Region and in STARFLEET.
One of the most important events at the Summit is the annual
Awards Banquet. The Republic has won five Regional
awards in the last two years and looks forward to another
triumphant year in 2009! This year, the Republic
has been nominated or is eligible for Commanding Officer of
the Year, Officer of the Year, Chapter of the Year, Mothership
of the Year, Starfleet Academy Achievement Award, Superior
Web Site Achievement and Performance, Most Informative Web
Site, Best Chapter Web Site, Best Printed Newsletter, Best
Electronic Newsletter and Newsletter of the Year awards.
Commanding Officer, Republic, would like for our chapter
to be well-represented at the 2009 Summit. Confirmed
to attend so far are Capt Eric L. Watts, Cmdr Brian
Holloway, ENS2 Zannetta Law, Ens Joanne Trew
and Ens Julianne Trew; other members still considering
include ENS2 Hal Doby and Capt Michael Cowart.
Please plan to join this "away mission" and attend this
very important event!
Adult registration for the 2009 Summit is $25 until February
15 and goes to $35 after that. Additional information
about the Summit in general can be found here.
The Budget Inn & Banquet in Jackson has given us a room rate
of $59 per night. The hotel is set up to receive phone
reservations ONLY. The number (601) 944-1150. When
making reservations, remember to use the group code "STARFLEET
Region 2" to get the special rate. The Fleet Admiral's
Dinner is set for Friday night at Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q
in Jackson. The Awards Banquet on Saturday will be buffet
style and held in the host hotel. Banquet prices are
$19.95 for adults, $10 for children under 10, and free for
children under 3. Additional information about the 2009
Summit, including hotel and restaurant info and PayPal links
for preregistration, Awards Banquet tickets and commemorative
t-shirts, can be found here.

Trekkies, Tribbles and Klingons, Oh My!
A benefit for PALS Atlanta and the Republic
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 8, 2009
The Wild Mustang
2115 Faulkner Rd, Atlanta GA 30324
Phone: (404) 844-8800
USS Republic is pleased to partner with PALS Atlanta
for a charity event to benefit both PALS Atlanta and the
Republic. Hosted by the hilarious and outrageous
Bubba D. Licious and held at The Wild Mustang just off Cheshire
Bridge Road, proceeds from this event will help PALS Atlanta
continue its mission of providing free food and basic veterinary
care and support to the pets of critically ill and disabled
Atlantans. This event will also serve as a fundraiser
and member recruitment opportunity for the Republic
as publicity and promotion for the new Star Trek
movie will be reaching its zenith just four weeks before
This is a costume-encouraged event and all members
and friends of the USS Republic are asked to wear
their best Star Trek costume (Starfleet, Klingon,
etc.), Republic sport shirt or t-shirt, or your own
club's t-shirt. We hope to hold a costume contest
of some sort during the event; details to be announced if
and when confirmed.
Doors at The Wild Mustang open at 6:30 p.m. with the first
Bingo number being called at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are
$20 and will be available from the USS Republic during
March and early April. A cash bar and food concessions
will be available. Your game card includes seven games
(six chances to win $100 cash and one jackpot game with
a $500 prize).

USS Republic comm badges
USS Republic is delighted to introduce our very own,
custom-designed chapter comm badges! Designed and created
by Capt Michael Cowart, these awesome new badges feature
the Republic's "Delta Shield/Capital R" logo rendered
in a Deep Space Nine/Voyager-style comm badge
that can be worn with your Next Generation-era style
uniform. Each badge is individually cast in plaster
and painted by hand to closely resemble the silver and bronze
colors of comm badges actually used on the modern Star
Trek series. Available in your choice of traditional
butterfly clutch (most secure) for $10.00 each or magnetic
backing (won't harm fabric) for $12.00 each, these unique
chapter comm badges will be a perfect addition to your uniform
for the Region 2 Summit, the St. Patrick's Parade and all
future chapter events. Show your pride in the Republic
and visit the Republic's Ship's
Store to order yours now!
St. Patrick's Parade: Shall we march?
USS Republic has been recently approached with opportunities
to march in two different annual parades: Atlanta's St.
Patrick's Parade and the Dragon*Con Parade. If
the Republic membership is interested in marching
in the St. Patrick's Parade, we need to act quickly. Participation
in the Dragon*Con parade will be contingent on whether there
is interest in marching in the St. Patrick's Parade.
2009 parade will have over 200 units, including floats, bands
of every kind, military units, bagpipe and drum corps, thousands
of children, Irish dancers, clowns, high-tech firefighting
equipment, police units, drill teams, dogs, horses, antique
cars, dignitaries from Ireland and our own government leaders.
Our Klingon friends in the IKAV
Nemesis have invited us to join them in Atlanta's
127th annual St.
Patrick's Parade on Saturday, March 14. The
Nemesis has marched in this parade for the last few
years and your Commanding Officer, Capt Eric L. Watts,
would like to accept the Nemesis' offer in the belief
that STARFLEET should be as equally represented in the parade
as Klingon fandom. Here are the major facts:
The parade will assemble on West Peachtree Street,
Peachtree Street and Ralph McGill Boulevard beginning at 10:00
The parade begins at 12:00 noon.
The route begins at the intersection of
Ralph McGill Boulevard and Peachtree Street and runs 1.1 miles
from the start at Ralph McGill to the end at Martin Luther
King Boulevard at Underground Atlanta, where there will be
free entertainment and vendors.
The Republic already has a full-sized,
full-color chapter banner suitable for a parade; see Recent
Chapter Event Photos below.
Additional details about the parade can
be found on their web
friends in KAG Atlanta in the 2007 St. Patrick's Parade. Shall
we join them this year?
a minimum of ten members to volunteer to march in the parade
on or before Saturday, February 14. As of this
writing, we have three confirmed volunteers (Capt Eric
L. Watts, Ens Naomi Hemingway and Ens Reginald
Franklin) and need at least seven more before we can
commit to the parade.
If we, as a group, decide to join the Nemesis in
the parade, they have also invited us to join them for lunch
after the parade at the Carne N' Espeto Brazilian Steakhouse
at 2555 Delk Road in Marietta. It comes highly
recommended by our friends in the Nemesis. The
price is $11.88 for a buffet-style, all-you-can-eat meat,
hot bar and cold bar.
If you are willing to march with the USS Republic
in Atlanta's 127th annual St. Patrick's Parade on Saturday,
March 14, please contact
the Captain as soon as possible. Committing
to marching in the parade does not obligate you to
join us for lunch afterwards.

USS Exeter files activity report for January
John R. Sims, Commanding Officer of the Republic's
shuttle, chapter-in-training USS Exeter NCC-1706, submitted
the following report for January 2009:
The USS Exeter had no meeting as such this month.
The chapter's CO, Cmdr John R. Sims, and his yeoman
were moving into a new house and had most of their time occupied
dealing with the logistics of that. The CO did stay
in contact with the crew about this transition. Fortunately,
the move went somewhat smoothly thanks to the help of chapter
XO Ens Ryan McDowell. He volunteered his time
and pick-up truck for this adventure. His services were
greatly appreciated indeed, seeing as he went above and beyond
the call of duty for the CO. He will be recommended
for maximum rank assignment when he has taken and passed his
OCC course, seeing as he has shown a great amount of energy
when it comes to helping this chapter and its CO. Also,
new member Ens Marian LaPlaca was instrumental in the
packing of the personal items for my yeoman, Ens Hyo Soon
Yoo. Several late nights of cardboard and tape later,
we had everything packed and ready for transport. Thanks,
Our next meeting will be a landing party to the local zoo.
We will be studying the beautiful creatures from Earth's 21st
century at this state-of-the-art facility. I will also
give the crew an update on our recruitment display at the
upcoming Star Trek movie premiere. The AMC cinema
manager has assured me of a prime location in the lobby to
do "our thing"!
I have also received word that the old STARFLEET chapter from
this area, the USS Excalibur, has expressed an overture
to possibly join us for some events. I will try to establish
subspace communications with the former chapter's CO, Rich
Kovatch, to help facilitate this. It would be really
nice to bring some old Fleeters back to the fold. Even
though I would have loved to attend the upcoming Region 2
Summit, it is not possible. I will, however, attend next year's,
seeing as hopefully our ship will be commissioned and, work
permitting, we will have the time to do so.
Thanks must go out to our mothership's CO, Captain Eric
L. Watts. He is, simply put... the BEST! The
Exeter appreciates all of his hard work on our behalf.

Republic plans for Star Trek movie premiere
Officer, Republic, had a meeting in late January with
the general manager of the Regal
Cinemas Hollywood Stadium 24 cineplex in Chamblee
to discuss possible plans for the Republic to have
a membership recruitment table set up inside the theater lobby
throughout the new Star Trek movie's opening weekend. The
good news is that the GM is very interested in working
with us; the bad news is that any such promotion must be approved
by corporate headquaters and no such approval will be granted
before April. If we receive permission to have
a table inside their lobby, we MUST be prepared to have it
manned by volunteers throughout the weekend. Please
the Captain if you are interested in being a part
of this very important member recruitment campaign.
USS Republic calendars still available
of our 2009 chapter calendars have, so far, been surprisingly
disappointing. Last year's calendars,
which weren't even available until March, sold out quickly,
so we printed almost twice as many for 2009 and had them ready
in December. Well into February, we still have
more than 20 copies available for sale.
Printed in full color and on heavyweight card stock, drilled
and comb-bound for easy wall-hanging, the USS Republic's
2009 calendars feature twelve photos from the Republic's
highest-profile events and activities from 2008, as well as
member birthdays, federal holidays, major religious and seasonal
observances, and most Atlanta-area science fiction convention
dates. THE calendar for all your fannish needs,

NCC-1371 is a chapter of STARFLEET International (SFI)
and a member of STARFLEET Region 2. The Republic
currently has 64 active members (as of February
8) and is one of the largest chapters of STARFLEET in
the world. The Republic plans and coordinates

partnering with other local science fiction groups in
the Atlanta area for joint activities, but does not hold
meetings on a consistently fixed date each month.

in STARFLEET International. Annual dues are $25
per person for both groups (family discounts are available
with certain conditions and restrictions). Membership

YEARS AGO ABOARD THE USS REPUBLIC
Captain Michael G. Hart
all hands... this is the Captain speaking.
Well, there you have it; USS Republic has come through
yet another year with great success, and now we look forward
to the coming year full of fun and the continuing adventure!
As most of you know, on 9101.05, I accepted the post of
Commanding Officer of the Republic for a second term. I
must thank all those faithful members who supported me
in the past election, and I will continue to strive to
serve this Chapter to the best of my ability. And
that shouldn't be too difficult, considering the awesome
group of staff officers who have agreed to assist me in
providing you all with the best local Star Trek fan club
possible. David Duncan, Hoyt & Zach Jordan,
Keith Rodgers, Sherry Randolph, and John Mitchell are
all dedicated members who will undoubtedly make up one
of the most productive staff the Republic has seen to
date. If you haven't met any of them, be sure
to introduce yourself to them at any upcoming meeting.
Just to let you know where we stand in the Fleet: USS
Republic is one hundred members strong as of 9101.23,
making our chapter the largest in Region Two and among
the largest in the fleet. Not too shabby, huh? On
board we have the Regional Vice Coordinator (Chris Ernst),
Regional Chief of Communications (Paul Timm), and the
Assistant Regional Division Chief -- Engineering (Hoyt
Jordan). There are, (at last count), seven Republic
members of the rank of Commander and above, and 30%
of the members overall are officers. Five members
have taken and passed Officer's Command College -- something
I'd encourage all you command hopefuls to do. At
the very least, Officer's Training School will get you
promoted to the rank of Ensign? (I just love
giving out promotions....).
Anyway, we've got a Starfleet chapter to be proud of;
come on out and be a part of it! Meeting dates
and times are posted herein.
And please -- support our men and women in Saudi Arabia!
HELMSMAN -- VIEWER AHEAD.
Executive Officer's Report
Cmdr David A. Duncan
have been with the USS Republic for many years now. I
joined when we were still the Shuttle Nautilus. My
previous positions have included, Assistant Chief of Security
and Chief of Security. I also took second place
in the Region Two Conference last year. My project
was a promotion point system. Now, I am proud
to be the new Executive Officer for Chapter Chairperson
Michael Hart. Michael was recently re-elected
as President of the USS Republic.
My position translates into the Vice President of this chapter
of Starfleet. As such, this is a very important
position. My primary duties are not unlike that
of the Vice President of the United States. I
am here to assist Michael in any way I can. This
takes the form of running chapter meetings when he is unavailable,
organizing staff meetings, assisting the Division heads
with their departments, and so on. I am here,
as everyone else on staff is, to make the club enjoyable
There are many times when the members may have questions,
especially new members. You might not know who
to call. That is also what I am here for. My
phone number is listed in the organizational chart of the
Republic listing, so give me a call. If I can't
give you an answer, I will direct you to someone who can.
IN SERVICE TO THE FLEET
LCdr Hoyt A. Jordan
(j.g.) Bill Knopes has been appointed the new Assistant
Chief Engineer and has been given responsibility for coordinating
the Republic Section of the Region Two Hospital Project.
Engineering is continuing to publish the Technical Briefing
with a new emphasis on articles and information of interest
to the Division. The March issue will be published
with CPO Seathe Schmidt as the editor.
Three standard departments are being created in the Division:
DESIGN / FABRICATION
Qualified members will eventually be selected to head up
The Engineering Division provides resources and technical
knowledge to all the Divisions and intends to become more
active in Region Two activities.
Lt. John P. Mitchell
Chief of Operations
fellow crewmembers! I am John Mitchell, your
new Chief of Operations. I have just recently
taken up the position of Chief of Ops. under the reorganization
of the Chapter. My Assistant Chief of Operations
is David Scoggin. My organizational skills and
experience as an auditor will be of benefit to the chapter,
and I look forward to the times ahead!
Things are currently in reorganization, and I am working
with some fund-raising ideas. Our Chapter's account
balance is $211.98 as of 9101.23. And don't forget! We
have badges, buttons, etc. for sale at the first meeting
of every month, (the activity meeting)! T-shirts
and/or other great stuff are in the works. Bring
lots of green stuff -- have fun! If money's not
for spending, what's it FOR?!? (Don't say kindling...).
Lt. Zach S. Jordan
Chief of Sciences
all, once and again, to the Sciences Division. Although
things have been a little quiet in the past few months for
us, we have several great projects on the drawing board
Sciences is now teaming up with Engineering and Medical
to assist with the Region 2 Hospital Project. This
project, started several months ago, is one of the best
activities our Region has ever put together. With
many areas of the Hospital still not drawn, we hope to provide
as much assistance as possible to speed up the drawings.
Secondly, Sciences and Special Services are working together
on the USS Republic deck plans. Very similar
to the Franz Joseph USS Constitution blueprints, these blueprints
will provide very in-depth information about the Republic
and will serve as a supplement to the Writer's Guide. Currently,
four outbound plans and three complete decks have been drawn
which leaves limitless areas of the ship still to be drafted. The
plans are tentatively scheduled to be finished near late
Until Next Time --
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER
Lt. Keith B. Rodgers
Chief of Security
I would like to open by thanking Captain Hart and the other
Officers of the Republic for the opportunity to command
the Security Division. I hope to maintain the
high standard which has become synonymous with the Republic
A few avenues I hope to pursue
in the next year in Security are:
Increased training in Convention
Increased Involvement in Starfleet
and the Security Division.
Work with Security Officers
to take Starfleet Academy Security School.
Schedule other Paintball War
Assist other Divisions on
board with Security related matters.
Initiate new fund raising
ideas (in conjunction with other Divisions).
Correspond with Catherine
Hicks (Ann Jillian, Star Trek IV), with whom presentation
was made by Security from the Republic to Mrs. Hicks at
the A.F.F. last year.
Also, any members interested in working with the Electrical
Eggs Program for assisting the handicapped, please contact
me for more information.
Any ideas from Security or from other Divisions are always
HAILING FREQUENCIES CLOSED
Lt. Sherry S. Randolph
Director of Special Services
I guess the best way to describe the status of Special Services
is "Under Construction." We are currently
attempting to establish departments with the division. The
four primary departments are:
Newsletter & Publications
Republic & Video Productions
Quarter Master Corp. (Costuming)
Due to this restructuring, I have several positions which
need to be filled. I will be accepting applications
for Department Coordinators for each department with an
exception of the Newsletter and Publications department;
I will oversee this department. I am also in
need of an Assistant Director of Special Services. Anyone
interested in these positions, please contact me for more
One of our first projects has just been completed and you
hold the results in your hand; the "USS Republic Status
Report". This will be a bi-monthly publication
which I hope will prove a good source of information to
LCdr Deborah Young is currently working on a project in
the Quarter Master Corp. Dept. Deborah is making
a vest that we hope to have ready by Con season for our
Republic members. I have seen her preliminary
layouts and I'm most pleased with the Trekkish look. Upon
completion of this project, we will be advising members
of cost and availability. We will also be soliciting
for participants in actual production of these vest. Availability
will largely depend upon participation.
Lt. Chris Hamilton has been appointed Assistant Editor of
"And To The Republic". I'm sure his
talents and skills will be a tremendous asset to our newsletter
as well our Division.
