International terminates print edition of The Communiqué
International has quietly and without explanation discontinued
the print edition of its formerly bimonthly, now quarterly
and seemingly perpetually behind-schedule newsletter, The
Communiqué. All attempts to locate an
official announcement about this rather major decision on
STARFLEET's part on both the SFI web site as well as in the
newsletter itself have failed. We do not know why
this decision was made. What we do know is that
current STARFLEET members who previously paid for a "Standard"
membership (which included a print edition of the newsletter)
can no longer renew their dues at the higher "Standard"
rate. The ONLY option that new and current members
now have to pay or renew their STARFLEET dues is at the lower
"E-Membership" rate, which includes an "electronic"
edition of the newsletter. Whether that means a
PDF version of the newsletter is emailed directly to members
or if members have to go the STARFLEET web site to download
a copy is unclear at this time. In either event, members
who have enjoyed and looked forward to receiving the print
edition of The Communiqué will no longer have
that one last perk of STARFLEET membership offered to them.

Takei has had a long and active career as an actor for more
than 60 years in television, feature films, live theater and

Hour of the Bath" from the TV show Alcoa Premiere. Also

an incredible honor to have shared the stage with these
representatives of all the Star Trek series that
have ever been," Bryan Fuller told StarTrek.com. "And
it's also an honor to have them be the launching pad for
for a new series that has something we all relate to in
Star Trek mythology, which is discovery."
smiled when asked how and why the upcoming showand
its hero shipwill be called Discovery. "There
are so many reasons why we settled on Discovery,"
Fuller explained. "But the chief one amongst them
was that I couldn't think of a more Star Trek-themed
name for a ship than Discovery."
Trek: Discovery is coming to CBS All Access in January
2017, following the premiere on the CBS Television Network,
and will be distributed concurrently on Netflix in 188 countries
and through Bell Media in Canada.
