Society for the appreciation of the Star Trek franchise, based at Oxford University.
We meet at Jesus 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, or occasionally three on the night 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.

Hey there, Trekkers!
First of all, thank you to all of the new members who turned up on Monday, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves ( I assure you that we normally watch things other than The Next Generation), and I hope to see you guys again! Secondly, if you couldn’t make it last week or have suddenly found the time or will to make it to the meeting, newcomers are always welcome!
This week’s theme is holodeck episodes! Whether it’s going back into some good old fashioned 20th century culture, or a particularly confusing Inception-like ‘are we still in a dream’ plot, the holodeck has plenty of great moments! So what are your favourites? Comment on the Facebook status, or just come along with your best suggestions!
We’re meeting at 7.45 outside Jesus College once again this week, with plenty of snacks to keep us busy! I hope to see you there!

Hi there everyone!
Just a quick reminder that the first meeting of term will be held tonight, with everyone meeting at 7.45 (ish) outside Jesus. Because we're not sure how many of you lovely people are turning up, we've actually got a spare room booked in Trinity, in case we get a full house! Don't worry though, we've got food enough for everyone, no matter what! It'll finish by 10.30, and it'll be a great way to unwind after the first weekday of term proper! Hope to see you there!

Hello there Trekkers!
And, for those of you who are new to our group, welcome! As a brief introduction (and for those who need a reminder), I am the Captain of TrekSoc, Oscar Acton, the one steering this ship, and the person to whom you should direct most questions should you have them (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also on your committee are Anthony Landau, 1st Officer, and Nathan Donaldson, Technical Officer. A warm welcome on behalf of the other two as well!
We plan to start as we mean to continue this term, with a meeting held at Jesus this Monday. We will meet outside the main gates to Jesus (on Turl Street) at 7.45 – 8 in the evening, and then proceed to watch 2 episodes of Trek. This week we’re watching the 2 part opener for The Next Generation, but in later weeks we’ll have a theme set beforehand, and episodes will be more democratically selected by our discerning members! The meeting should last until about 10.30, and there will be various snacks and drinks too! The first 2 meetings are free, so feel free to come along and get a feel for what the society is like to help you decide whether or not you want to become a member.
In terms of communication, I normally send out one of these emails every week, and also will post on our Facebook group, which you can join us at:
We also have a Groupspaces page, which you can find the link to at the bottom of this email. It’s got various details about regular society meetings if you ever forget, and if at any point you want to unsubscribe to the mailing list, that’s the place to do it.
Later this term, probably in 8th week, we’ll have a society meal at a restaurant somewhere, hopefully Atomic Burger (google it, it’s fantastic!) and we also hope to have a pre-meeting dinner at Jesus hall, so there’s that to look forward to later on!
I think that’s everything! If you want more info on anything, then check our Groupspaces page, and if that doesn’t tell you, then feel free to get in contact with me via email or Facebook. Hope to see you all soon!
