All About Manchester Starfleet
Manchester Starfleet is a Star Trek fan club based in Manchester, England. It was first formed back in the late 80s when the popularity with the Star Trek movies and Star Trek: The Next Generation meant than Trek fandom was steadily building momentum. During its peak, the club had over 200 members from the North West alone and always saw a great turn out at their monthly meetings held in Manchester City Centre. However sadly, just like the world of Trek, the club faded away just after the turn of the century. Now, a small group of devoted fans have decided the time is right and after nearly 10 years, Manchester Starfleet is once again boldly going. Ever since May 2009 when the Star Trek movie came to the big screens, this group of fans have been meeting regularly every month. The Trek related stories and articles on the club’s website at www.manchesterstarfleet.co.uk have started to gain increased interest from fans from not only the North West of England but from around the world and the number of fans at their monthly meet ups are beginning to grow.
Simon Hodgkinson, The Captain of Manchester Starfleet
“As soon as we started the website and advertised the monthly get togethers, a lot of avid Trek fans in the UK contacted us to say that they felt there was hardly any Star Trek fan clubs left in the UK anymore and even less where they could actually go to chat and make new like-minded friends. We really want our monthly meetings to be open to everyone, from casual viewers of Star Trek to die-hard fans, from old to young, where you can make new friends and of course most importantly, to have fun”
