STARFLEET International terminates print edition of The Communiqué
STARFLEET 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.

George Takei has had a long and active career as an actor for more than 60 years in television, feature films, live theater and radio.  He has more than 200 credits listed on his IMDb page, but here he is in an uncredited role not listed there.  This photo is from the 1962 episode "The Hour of the Bath" from the TV show Alcoa Premiere.  Also shown are Robert Fuller as Henry Detweiler and Barbara Luna as Beky.  Ms. Luna would work with Takei again five years later as Lt. Marlena Moreau in the 1967 Star Trek episode, "Mirror, Mirror."  She has also played prominent characters in two episodes of Star Trek: New Voyages and Star Trek Continues.

The USS Republic NCC-1371 was originally commissioned as a chapter of STARFLEET International on May 14, 1988, at the Dixie-Trek convention in Atlanta, Georgia.  As of July 26, 2016, the Republic crew includes 36 members who are active members of STARFLEET in good standing.
The Republic plans and coordinates an active schedule of events for its members, but does not hold meetings on a consistently fixed date each month.
Because the USS Republic is a duly commissioned chapter of STARFLEET International and is bound and governed by its Constitution and By-Laws, membership in STARFLEET is a prerequisite for membership in the Republic.  STARFLEET and Republic membership dues are $10 each for one person ($20 total) and are typically remitted as a single payment to the Republic.  STARFLEET offers family discounts for additional members as shown below.  Additional information about membership options, amounts due for additional family members, payment options and instructions for other forms of payment is on the "How to Join" page of our award-winning web site.

NEWS from
Introducing the USS Discovery
By Staff
July 23, 2016
And the name of the newest Star Trek television series is... Star Trek: Discovery, with the show's hero ship called the USS Discovery (NCC-1031).  Executive Producer Bryan Fuller revealed the details and debuted the logo today during a standing-room-only "Star Trek 50th Anniversary" panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
Fuller—who in the early morning served fans in line donuts and coffee—treated attendees to an exclusive first look video of the test flight of the USS Discovery, the newest Starfleet ship in the storied franchise's return to television.
"It's an incredible honor to have shared the stage with these representatives of all the Star Trek series that have ever been," Bryan Fuller told  "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."
Fuller smiled when asked how and why the upcoming show—and its hero ship—will 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."
Star 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.
