The Oxford Star Trek Society

Oxford Star Trek Society

Society for the appreciation of the Star Trek franchise, based at Oxford University.
We meet at St John's College on Mondays; find us outside the lodge at 7:45 for the meeting 8:00-10:30pm.

Our format involves picking a theme, members suggesting episodes and the group voting for two, which we'll sit back and enjoy with refreshments. No costumes, no analysis, just some awesome Trek!

The first two meetings are free, after which they are £2 for non-members and memberships are £5 for a term, £10 for a year, £15 for life.

8th Week - Film Night

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 10th June 2017 @ 4:39pm

Hi everyone,

It's that time again - the TrekSoc you've all been waiting for...  

Film night!

This is always a controversial showing so be sure to suggest and vote for your favourite films or two-parters!

Good luck to all who have exams and can't make it to our final meeting of term - for the rest of us meet at 7:45 outside St John's as usual :)

LLAP,
First Officer Griffiths 

7th Week - How can you be deaf with ears like that?

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 3rd June 2017 @ 5:48pm

Hi all,

Pale skin, sensitive to noise, high caffeine tolerance - finalists and Vulcans have a lot in common! Sadly, or perhaps happily, few Star Trek episodes focus on students taking their terminal exams. Fortunately, however, there are plenty that feature everyone's favourite green-blooded, anatomically-confused race of logicians (who promise that they do in fact have feelings).

Vulcans appear in 401 episodes of Star Trek, so as the Mathematicians/CompSci people will tell you, that's 80200 possible evenings that we could have. While that's not quite "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations," it's close enough for plenty of excitement. So, get on the Facebook group, nominate an episode featuring your favourite pointy-eared hobgoblin, and come along!

This week we'll be at St John's - as always we'll meet outside the lodge at 7:45.

I would be remiss not to end with this:

Live Long and Prosper,
Captain Le Croissette

6th Week - Sun and Social Commentary

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 27th May 2017 @ 8:20pm

Hey all,


Over the past 50 years, Star Trek has been a consistent vehicle of social commentary, challenging people's views and presenting new perspectives on old issues. This week we're nominating episodes that have some element of this - it's quite an open theme, so go wild (and no, there's no (reasonable/acceptable) way to spin Spock's Brain as a social commentary). So get on the Facebook Group and vote/ nominate an episode (as always, leave a reason for your nomination in the comments below)! 

This week we're back at St John's so we'll meet outside the lodge on St Giles at 19:45 for a 20:00 start.

Best of luck for all of you who have exams!
LLAP,
Captain Le Croissette
