USS Stargazer

In the Star Trek universe

The USS Stargazer was commissioned by Starfleet Command in early 2293 and was built at the San Francisco fleet yards orbiting Earth. She is an Excelsior Class (Enterprise B Variant) Explorer.

The ship is based within the timeline of the Star Trek films “Wrath of Khan” to “The Undiscovered Country”, and the ship’s company wear the standard Starfleet uniform of the era.

In the real universe

The USS Stargazer is a correspondence chapter of STARFLEET International (SFI), based in Region 20 (the UK & Ireland). Membership is mainly comprised of UK members but at time of writing we have one international member.

Correspondence is mainly via email and internet but wherever possible, members of the crew meet up at sci-fi based events across the UK. Quite often these will involve other Region 20 chapters.

Do we ‘meet’ regularly?

In a manner of speaking, yes. On our Facebook page, we often have little role play sessions. We have also held book club meets and quizzes in the past. The more members get involved, the more things happen, so don’t be frightened to join in.

The Pre History of our Chapter

The USS Stargazer warped (at the regulation at half speed) out of dry dock on STARDATE: 2002.275 which in Terran terms is October 2002.

Over the years, she has grown and developed along with her crew, taking on various names and guises, not unlike Doctor Who with whom she became closely related in 2009.

This page documents her history as told by her former captains, Colonel Adrian Jones, FCAPT Richard Sams, MCPT Marie Smith, Fleet Captain Dan Adams.

The adventure continues under our current exulted Captain,  Michael Hartley.
