Hi Crew
The theme this week is Hail to the Chief! Nominate your favouite episodes featuring chief engineers in a leading capacity. Maybe they're trying to save the ship by preventing a warp core breach with 5 seconds to spare, or simply spend the entire epsiode spouting technobabble, it does not matter!
Also if you want to come to the crewdate with WhoSoc on Tuesday (13th November), please vote in the poll Rogan has put on the facebook group.
For the meeting as usual it's Monday 1945hrs at the High Street End of Logic Lane, see you there!

E-mail sent by Member 205b96d, Saturday, 3rd November 2018 @ 9:43am

Hi everyone,

As fifth week draws in it's time to get back to basics by which we mean Starfleet Academy. This week we are nominating episodes which feature someone applying to or are set in the Academy or feature someone currently attending the Academy.

There's also a few extra things going on this week. Come along to our board games night tonight, meeting at Univ lodge at 8pm, featuring some Trek (and maybe few non-Trek) games. If you can't make it tonight come along to Geek Quiz this Thursday, meeting at 8pm at the front gate of Worcester College, which is always a really great evening!

As always we'll be meeting on Monday at 19:45 at High Street end of Logic Lane and if you fancy some hot chocolate remember to bring a mug!

Make it so,
Captain Crothers

 

4th Week - Horror on the Holodeck

E-mail sent by Member 205b96d, Friday, 26th October 2018 @ 3:56pm

Hi everyone,

As Star Trek isn't known for being particularly terrifying this Halloween we're watching episodes taking place in the wonderful world of the Holodeck. This can be any episode which takes place on or features one of the Holodeck programs but if you feel there's a Star Trek episode we should be watching at Halloween feel free to nominate it as well!

Even if you can't join us on Monday come along to our Board Games social on Saturday 4th Week at 8pm in Univ.

As always we'll be meeting on Monday at 19:45 High Street end of Logic Lane, see you there!

Make it so,

3rd Week - I'm a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here!

E-mail sent by Will Chappell, Friday, 19th October 2018 @ 1:51pm

Hi Crew

This week we shall enjoy episodes with guest stars who are not generally known for doing Star Trek (ie not a recurring character). Their presence in the epsiode can be as brief or as involved as you wish.
There might be more options than you expect so Google is your friend!
Please nominate and vote on our facebook group poll (https://www.facebook.com/groups/oxford.star.trek.society/). For anyone new the protocol is that you have two votes you can cast, and if you wish can also nominate up to two epsiodes.

As usual we'll me meeting at the High Street end of Logic Lane at 1945 hrs Monday evening

2nd Week - Worthy of Commendation

E-mail sent by Will Chappell, Friday, 12th October 2018 @ 7:50pm

Hi Crew

As everyone begins to settle back into the Oxford routine, let's settle into some fantastic Star Trek this week with the theme "Worthy of Commendation." Nominate/vote on the group for episodes you feel should be commended as some of the best Star Trek has to offer, and show us why it is the best set of TV shows ever made (I'm biased of course). (As for which is the best of all the individual shows, well you can argue about that yourselves)

We'll be meeting on Monday at 19:45 at the High Street end of Logic Lane by University College as usual, see you there!
Live long and prosper

This week we are celebrating the best Starfleet medical has to offer, it's time to showcase your favourite moment with your favourite Starfleet doctor. If you were being rushed to sick bay with plasma burns, who would you want holding the tricorder?

Hi everyone,

As we voyage into the unknown with an all new crew what better theme to start with than 'New Leadership.' This can be anything from a character first taking on the mantle of leadership to an episode where we see someone new in the Captain's chair.

We'll be meeting in Univ so let's assemble in Logic Lane (High Street end) at 19:45 on Monday.

Make it so,
Captain Crothers

 

Week 3 - Undiscovered Countries

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Friday, 4th May 2018 @ 6:39pm

Hi Everyone! 

I can't believe it's been a year, but it's election time! We've had a great time running the ship, and we're really looking forward to handing over the reins and seeing what exciting new (or old) directions the new bridge crew take us in. 

We'll be holding the elections on Monday, so come prepared to stand, vote and/or ask searching or amusing questions! All positions (Captain, First Officer, Tech Officer and Morale Officer) are open and it's not a huge time investment, so it would be great to see all of them filled so the society can keep running smoothly and generally being fab.

The theme this week is "Undiscovered Countries" - I've no clue who'll be making the next post here (excitiiiing) but I'm looking forward to (tenuous link incoming) discovering, so let's nominate and vote for episodes about new inventions, discoveries or forays into the unknown (likely with potentially disastrous consequences, which I'm sure *won't* be predictive of the new bridge crew).

We'll be meeting outside St John's at 19:45 as usual!

LLAP (for the last time!?!),
Captain Le Croissette

E-mail sent by Elizabeth Griffiths, Sunday, 29th April 2018 @ 9:19pm

Hi everyone,

It's week two already and exams are creeping ever closer for most of us. This week's theme is "Defending the fort" - any episode which involves take over of the ship/station and a (preferably heroic yet humerous) defence by the crew.

Meet outside John's at 19:45 as usual, hope to see you all there!

LLAP,
First Officer Griffiths

Trinity week 1

E-mail sent by Elizabeth Griffiths, Sunday, 22nd April 2018 @ 9:23pm

Hi guys, welcome back for Trinity term!
 

Our esteemed captain has left me in charge for the next two weeks, so in preparation for impending exams this week's theme is overcoming adversity. Whether it's studying for a star fleet entrance exam or trying to communicate with an alien species star trek is full of challenges, so get you suggestions up! (episode descriptions as well please!)

Meet outside John's at 19:45 as usual - see you all there!

Week 8 - Film Night

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 3rd March 2018 @ 11:04am

Hey Everyone,

Term is once again drawing to a close, and to cap off the year we've had so far of Discovery and some questionable episodes of Trek (it's your choice whether or not those categories overlap) it'd be great to watch a fun film or two-parter. Do jump onto the group: www.facebook.com/groups/8731153518 and nominate/vote for your choice of feature-length fun!

We'll be meeting at Teddy Hall at 19:45, there'll be snacks, and it'll be a great end to a fun term.

If you've signed up for the Atomic Pizza trip, please do make sure to go, and if you haven't paid for/collected stash yet, I should have sent you payment details - we'd really appreciate it if you could ASAP!

LLAP,
Captain Le Croissette


 

Week 7 - Voyager

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Sunday, 25th February 2018 @ 2:35pm

Hey everyone,

We're racing through the term and (tenuous link incoming) at this point I'm just aiming to make it home - let's watch some Voyager (yep told you it was tenuous...). Jump onto the group and nominate/vote for episodes, maybe leaving a comment justifying your choice.

We're meeting at Teddy Hall (St Edmund Hall) at 19:45 on Monday as normal.

LLAP,
Captain Le Croissette

Week 6 - Guinan

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 17th February 2018 @ 10:57pm

Hey everyone,

By popular request we're gonna have a week focussing on (debatably) the best bartender in Trek (possibly because she has some fab episodes associated with her - Whoopiiiii). So nominate/vote (on the group) for an episode starring/featuring/mentioning Guinan (and/or her amazing hat) - http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Guinan has a handy list!

We'll meet at Teddy Hall at 19:45 as usual :)



Hope to see you there!

Captain Le Croissette 
(P.S. if you're struggling, Quark's fine too - just not anything where he wears a dress, marries a Klingon or reanimates a corpse...)

Week 5 - Out with a BANG!

E-mail sent by Member 205b955, Saturday, 10th February 2018 @ 2:45pm

Hey all,


It's the season finale of Discovery and I'm sure, given how the series has been so far, it's gonna be wild. Alongside this, hop onto the group and nominate/vote for some Trek that you think would make a fitting companion to what will hopefully be an explosive episode.


We'll be meeting on Monday at 19:45 as usual, at *Teddy Hall*.

As always, Geek Quiz is on Thursday - 8pm start at the Nazrin Shah Auditorium (Worcester College). See Rogan's post on the group for more details!
