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 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.

Hey there, Trekkers!
Sorry for the delay on the email this week! I hope you’re all doing well! Tomorrow’s theme is going to be Outstanding Crewmates. This is going to be those episodes that focus not on a glorious or not so glorious captain, or even a big new threat, but where we get to see more of some of the bit players. Think “Measure of a Man”, except we’ve already seen that one! Once again, tomorrow at the usual time, meet 7.45 to 8, usual place, outside the Jesus College main entrance. Hope to see you there!
For those of you waiting with baited breath on our termly meal, news has arrived! The preliminary plan is Wednesday THIS WEEK, so sorry about the short notice. We’ll be going to Atomic Pizza on Cowley Road, and I’ll make the booking for 8. For those of you who live in the centre of town and will be walking, we’ll meet outside Jesus 7 – 7.15 to walk down together. We’ll leave at 7.15 to make the booking, so don’t be late!
If you want to come, please reply to this email or post on Facebook so I have a good idea of numbers. I’ll be making a booking TOMORROW after TrekSoc, so you can also tell me there if you prefer. Otherwise, message me plenty in advance!

Hey there, Trekkers!
Hopefully those 5th week blues are subsiding, so why not celebrate with some Star Trek? Meet at Jesus again, between 7.45 – 8 on Monday evening. This week, or theme is favourite species! Do you go for the only logical option, the Vulcans? Maybe you are already sharpening your Bat’leth to show your Klingon pride? Come along and let us know which species you are secretly a part of, and what episodes you think show them off the best! Or come along with an open mind, and see the best that other systems have to offer!
In other news, we sadly didn’t quite win the Geek quiz (read: got stomped thanks to Dr Who society's blatant favouritism), but we had fun and I think the society was represented quite well! This is a termly thing, so we’ll be doing the same again in Michelmas, if anyone feels as if they missed out.
Finally, details about the termly meal will be winging their way to you later this week, as well as any other TrekSoc activities that may/may not be being planned. Watch this space!

Hi there, Trekkers!
As we boldly go into 5th week (please don’t hurt me), Trek Soc meets up once again, at our new home in Jesus! Same time as normal, 7.45-8.00 meet up outside the main lodge of Jesus. Our theme for this week will be “Weird Episodes”. Ever watched an episode that left you shocked, unsure, or just plain old bewildered? Whether the plot seemed to just shoot itself in the foot, your favourite captain was acting completely out of character, or it was just completely nonsensical, these disturbing experiences are best shared with others! Remember, they’re not always the bad episodes, just the ones that stick out as odd in your mind.
As we get to the 2nd half of term, I know everyone’s thoughts are turning to the Trek Soc termly meal! Do you guys have any suggestions on where to go? It’ll probably be organised for 7th/8th week, but if you have any strong preferences for time or date and want to come along, please email me!
On a similar note, as usual, any episode suggestions/queries/anything else Trek Soc related that you want to ask, feel free to email me, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
