Greetings Trekkers!

I trust that you are all well, had an enjoybale freshers week, and a first week that wasn't too strenuos. I am excited to be able to say that we will be having our first meeting of the term on Monday. My apologies for the wait, but we had a slght problem in acquiring a room, but alas that problem has been addressed, and so our voyage can finally begin. 

We have an exciting term ahead of us. Highlights of this term include a social dinner at Atomic Burger, eating in Keble hall followed by a screening of both parts of the first episode of Voyager, a Romulan Ale making competition (the lethal-'er' the better!), and a screening of the film 'Star Trek: Into Darkness'. Please see our facebook group for a full copy of our termcard. If you fancy any/all of these events, then please feel free to come along, all are welcome.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/8731153518/

For our first meeting the theme will be 'The Classics'. Armed with a hard drive full of Trek episodes, we'll be taking a vote, and sitting back to watch the qpisodes we feel qualify as 'Classics'. Episode suggestions are encouraged, and please post any on the facebook event (linked below). To get us in the mood, we will be enjoying a variety of snacks and drinks (and yes, some alcoholic) with a classic theme. 

https://www.facebook.com/events/540197252728579/?context=create

Freshers, this is a perfect week for you to come along and find out that our society is all about, and watch some classic episodes. If for any reason however you can't make it, then please don't feel as if you are unable to attend any of our subsequent meetings. 

We will be meeting outside the lodge of Keble college at 7:45pm on Monday (the 21st of October) for an 8pm start. 

We hope to see as many of you as possible, faces old or new,

Over and out,
Your Captain,
Steven Eldridge

Star Trek: Into Darkness

E-mail sent by Lucy E, Monday, 6th May 2013 @ 10:52pm

Evening TrekFans!

After watching the reboot tonight we're eagerly counting down the days until the next film comes out, and the good news is we don't have to wait long...

On Thursday (9th) TrekSoc is heading to the Odeon on George Street to catch the 8pm 3D showing of Star Trek: Into Darkness, as voted for on our facebook page.

At the meeting we decided we'd like to go and sit in awe/pick out plot holes (but mainly sit in awe) together, so I will make a group booking. The screen is already filling up so I will buy the seats tomorrow night - if you want me to reserve a seat for you please email me back by 6pm tomorrow (lucy.eldridge@stcatz.ox.ac.uk). Student tickets for 3D films are £9.75, so please bring cash on the night to pay me back, and don't forget your student ID!

See you there!

Admiral Lucy

TrkSoc needs YOU!

E-mail sent by Louise Peterken, Saturday, 4th May 2013 @ 2:32pm

Good afternoon fellow Trekkies!

I hope everyone has been enjoying the glorious weather we've been having recently (who needs Risa, eh?). It is that time of year again where we elect a new bridge crew to boldly lead the society into the coming year, and for that, mTrekSoc needs you! Whether you want to put yourself forward for a position (Captian, Treasurer, Chief Engineer), or you just want to make sure the society will be in safe hands for 2013, it is important that as many people as possible attend. As an added incentive, we'll be watching the 2009 reboot movie in preparation for its sequel, which comes out on Thursday (and which we'll hopefully go and see - see our facebook page).

I hope to see you there. Live Long and Prosper,
Captain out.

Hey everyone,

This week it is the elections for next year's committee (And the rest of this term) so who knows who could be creating the next event!

As well as the elections we are also going to watch the successful 2009 Star Trek reboot. (It got me into Star Trek!)

Meet at 7:45pm outside Hertford college for an 8:00pm start and this week no need to suggest episodes! :p

Hope to see you there,

Will

Week 2: Technology

E-mail sent by William Dutton, Saturday, 27th April 2013 @ 10:54pm

Hey Everyone,

This week it is all about the awesome (Or dreaded?) technology that the Star Trek crew rely on and how it can go crazily wrong. We all know what it can be like! Suggest your favourite episodes and come along for an evening of entertainment. (providing we don't have own own technology problems!)

Meet on Monday at 7:45pm outside Hertford college for an 8:00pm start.

See you there!

Will

Week 1: Bring on the archaeologists!

E-mail sent by William Dutton, Friday, 19th April 2013 @ 2:57pm

Hey Everyone,

Welcome back everyone and it is time for the first Star Trek night this term! The theme is archaeologists and the past so grab those historic themed episodes or those with your favourite archaeologist such as Vash.

Meet Monday evening at Hertford College at 7:45pm for the usual 8pm start.

As usual there will be refreshments provided but hopefully not as historic as the artefacts that get found tonight.

Please suggest episodes! :)

What's happening in Trinity

E-mail sent by Louise Peterken, Thursday, 18th April 2013 @ 10:43pm

Happy Trinity TrekSoc!

Hope everyone's had a great vac, and for those of us with exams, I hope revision is going well. There are several things to relay to you all, so listen up.

First of all, it's coming up to that time of year again when the current Captain and crew must hand the baton on to the next generation (pause for laughs), by electing a new Captain, Treasurer, and Chief Engineer. These elections will take place in Third Week; anybody can run for a position - in fact, the more the merrier. Just come along and tell us what you could bring to TrekSoc etc. A brief summary of the roles is as follows:

Captain: responsible for booking rooms and Freshers' Fair stalls, for welcoming new members and for general organisation and seeing that everything runs smoothly.

Treasurer (first officer): in charge of collecting memberships and getting refreshments every week

Chief Engineer: in charge of episodes and having something to play them on

Because ofelections, the termcard this term extends only as far as Third Week, as from that point on, the new captain will decide which episodes/themes we'll be watching (we will remain at Hertford all term though).

In other news, I am pleased to announce that the Society now owns every episode of Voyager on our hard drive, making our selection of episodes every week that little bit more convenient.

Enjoy the term!

Live Long and Prosper
Louise

Week 6:Time's Arrow

E-mail sent by William Dutton, Saturday, 16th February 2013 @ 8:52pm

Hey Everyone,

This week we are planning to watch a double episode of "Time's Arrow" which has been requested many times but we have never got around to watching - so now is the time. Also for a bit of a change we are going to watch some episodes of the animated series.

All this will be accompanied with some Dominoes Pizza takeaway for good measure! :)

Meet as usual outside Hertford college on Monday at 7:45pm for an 8:00pm start and please suggest episodes for the animated series - especially as is likely a series that less people are likely to have seen and so it will be harder for them to make suggestions. :p

Hope to see you there,

Will

Hey everyone!

It is time for some Trek style romance episodes. Be prepared to cringe and some cheesiness or chill out and laugh at some interesting chat up lines which surely would not work in real life!

Meet at 7:45pm outside Hertford college on Monday for an 8pm start.

As usual there will be some refreshments (love themed?!) for the evening and plenty of lovely company.

Hope to see you all there.

Will

Hope to see you there!

Week 3: Social & Movie Night at St Catz

E-mail sent by Lucy E, Thursday, 24th January 2013 @ 5:27pm

Evening all!

As we look ahead to week 3 TrekSoc invites you to enjoy a deviation from the usual routine...it's time for our termly social! On Monday 28th of January, TrekSoc is heading over to St Catherine's College for dinner in hall, which will be immediately followed by a Movie Night.

Dinner: St Catz is renowned for its great food and laid back atmosphere - there's no dress code and no gowns required. Unfortunately the menu is unlikely to be released until Monday (just Google 'St Catz JCR Hall' to find this week's menu if you want an idea), but whatever it is, it should be well worth the £3.80 we pay for a three course meal. There's no booking system so you don't have commit to attending if you're not sure, but if you are coming and you have any dietary requirements (other than being vegetarian) you need to let me know asap.

Movie Night: After dinner we're heading into St Catz JCR lecture theatre to watch a movie! This term we're leaving it to a vote on the night, so we can sit back and enjoy the film of our choice (with snacks galore if by some chance you should have any room left over...)

So, meet us outside St Catherine's College lodge on Monday at 6:50pm to join us for dinner (and bring £3.80 in change), and if you can't make it you can still join us for the movie at 8pm (ask in the lodge for directions to the JCR lecture theatre). Email me at lucy.eldridge@stcatz.ox.ac.uk if you have any questions, or call me on 07702779307 if you have any problems on the day.

Hey everyone,

This week's meeting theme is guilty pleasures. This is a chance to suggest all those strange and bizarre episodes that you really enjoyed but nobody else fully understood why! Or maybe suggest an episode where a character gets involved in a guilty pleasure... :)

Termly Meal

E-mail sent by Louise Peterken, Friday, 16th November 2012 @ 3:27pm

Good afternoon, everyone!

The time has once again come for the Termly Meal, where members of TrekSoc go out en masse for food and chat. This year, we are going to Atomic Burger on Cowley Road. It will be at some point on Monday of 8th Week (time dependent on when I can get a booking). As such, I need an idea of numbers, so if you would like to come, please either drop me an email or sign your life away on the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/137500923064594/?notif_t=plan_user_joined).

This will also be a good chance to voice any ideas you may have about the Society next term, and the more the merrier!

Live Long and Prosper,
Louise

Geek Quiz

E-mail sent by Louise Peterken, Tuesday, 6th November 2012 @ 8:55am

Hi guys!

I just received an email from the Doctor Who Society, reminding me about the annual Geek Quiz that runs and involves all the geek societies of the university. If anybody wants to go, feel free! I will probably be there, and it will bo our chance to show Oxford who is the better set of geeks! And of course, it'll be fun, etc.

The original email is below.

Live Long and Prosper,
Louise

Greetings Whovians and fellow geeks!
 
At last, the Geek Quiz! For those of you that don’t know, the Geek Quiz takes place once a term and involves all the geekiest societies in Oxford getting together to compete against each other. All are welcome to write a round (the more the merrier) so long as this round does not specifically relate to their own society but is still appropriately geeky. Some creative rounds in the past have included fictional family trees, ‘Only Connect’ style questions and ‘Guess the evil laugh’. This week we are meeting at 8pm at St John’s and as ever directions can be found on our website. The room is through the left hand side of the Front Quad and then on the far left of the North Quad – please don’t ask the porters but feel free to email me if you’re unsure. Unfortunately, food and drink are not allowed in the room so please don’t bring any. As always, here is the termcard entry:
 
*~* 5th Week *~*
> The Geek Quiz <
Thursday, 8th November, 8pm – North Quad Lecture Room, St. John’s
In the legendary Geek Quiz, members of Oxford's geekiest societies get together in order to battle it out for the crown of "team who won that term". If you can write a round not entirely related to Doctor Who, then bring it along. Be there and not feel square for once (unless your round foxes everyone).If you're part of a society that you think might be interested in coming along you can e-mail me (leah.king@ccc.ox.ac.uk) and we can make sure you get directions to the room, as St. John's is a bit scary and enormous and easy to get lost in.
 
Hope to see lots of you there and bringing rounds! J
