Society for the appreciation of the Star Trek franchise, based at Oxford University.
We meet at Hertford College on Mondays in the Ferrar room; find us outside the lodge at 7:45 for the meeting 8:00-11:00pm.
Our format involves picking a theme, members suggesting episodes and the group voting for three on the night which we'll sit back and enjoy with refreshments. No costumes, no analysis, just some awesome Trek!
The first three meetings are free, after which they are £2 for non-members and memberships are £5 for a term, £10 for a year, £17 for life.

Good afternoon TrekFans,
At the end of each term TrekSoc heads out to a restaurant for our end of term meal, and this time we'll be booking a table at the sci-fi paradise known as Atomic Pizza. Think walls plastered with all things sci-fi, a Tardis, and most importantly one of the best menus in Oxford (which can be found here: http://atomicpizzas.co.uk/). If you haven't tried it you've really been missing out, and it's well worth a trek down Cowley Road.
This meal will also double up as a little brainstorm to come up with some ideas for our next termcard, so this is your opportunity to influence the themes and socials we'll be organizing for Hilary.
Due to a couple of availability issues, the TrekSoc termly meal will take place on Wednesday evening next week. Our Captain will be making a group booking tomorrow night, so if you'd like to join us pleaseemail firstname.lastname@example.org 5pm tomorrow. Once our booking is confirmed we'll then email out with exact time/location/directions details to those who are attending (we'll be asking for a table at 7pm or later).

Week 7 hails the arrival of our termly Movie Night, this time featuring 'Star Trek: Into Darkness'. Opinion on the first reboot was divided, but the second installment featuring one of Trek's best baddies has firmly established itself as a thrilling watch. Join us as we sit back, turn out the lights and enjoy!
Come along to Keble College lodge at the usual time of 7:45pm on Monday for a group screening, accompanied by popcorn and refreshments galore!

Good afternoon TrekFans,
This week we're introducing a new competition: make your own Romulan Ale!
We're asking everyone who attends the meeting to bring along their own take on this famous Trek drink (don't worry, we'll provide the blue food dye on the night). The ingredients are completely up to you; alcoholic or non alcoholic, fizzy, fruity, whatever you want...all we specify is that your concoction contains at least two ingredients, and that you bring enough of it for everyone to have a couple of mouthfuls. (To give you some ideas, previous ales have included vodka and lemonade, and lemonade with lime cordial). Whoever the society votes the maker of the best Romulan Ale will win a food prize AND can decide which episode we watch first that evening.
That brings us on to the theme this week: Anything but Voyager.Following the (scandalous) murmours of a society bias towards this excellent series, we'll be taking our pick of the other four. Is there a TOS, TNG, DS9 or ENT episode you've been waiting to put forward which hasn't fit our themes so far? Now's the time! Post your suggestions on our facebook event page, or email a committee member and we'll do that for you. Remember, if you don't suggest it before the night, we won't watch it...
So, come on down to Keble College lodge on Monday at 7:45pm with your Romulan Ale concoctions for what promises to be a great night.
