CHAPTER NEWS


CATCH US ON THE HOLODECK!
Beginning in May 2020 we were forced to switch to virtual meetings and events via Zoom due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Since then we have grown to appreciate the many benefits of having virtual events, especially for those members that can not attend in person due to distance, health or scheduling reasons. That said, we do attend in-person events and conventions in the Philly, Lehigh Valley and Mid-Atlantic areas. Therefore we have decided to continue to operate as a hybrid chapter, both virtually and in person. Check out our Calendar page for a complete listing of our upcoming meetings, events and area conventions and join us either virtually or in person.
Computer: End Program!

Star Trek Picard’s Worst Character Breaks Gene Roddenberry’s Biggest Rule

April-11-2024

While actor Michelle Hurd is immensely talented, her Star Trek: Picard character Raffi is basically the worst. Her characterization is all over the place, and the first season portrayed her as a person with a drug addiction, something many fans thought should be impossible in the far-flung future. It turns out that Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry would have agreed, as he vetoed a script idea that would have had one of Captain Kirk’s crew addicted to drugs… READ MORE
