very warm welcome to you
as you visit the website of the USS Ark Royal, NCC-7991.
Star Trek fandom means
something different to every one of us, and it is that diversity and
mutual tolerance that first brought me to SFI* and the Ark Royal.
In the Trek world, we are
based around the time of the original series movies, and our ship is
part of the 20th Fleet**. The ship is an Excelsior Class Explorer, but
we have sufficient firepower to hold our own in a fight! The crew is
supported by our Marine
Strike Group - the 380th (U.N.I.T.). You can
see a little of the history of our ship and it’s illustrious
predecessors elsewhere on this site.
In the non-Trek world, we
are a correspondence chapter of the largest Star Trek fan club in the
world. Based in Derbyshire, our membership is drawn from across the UK
and beyond. We meet up on FaceBook, chat sites, our forum and have
occasional meets—all for fun. We have a strong ethos of charitable
giving and fund-raising. As part of the 20th Fleet, we join together
with the crew of the other ships in the region for various events
throughout the year.
Membership of the USS Ark
Royal is available to any member of STARFLEET International
can join SFI directly via this link and the current membership options
I look forward to welcoming
you on board soon.
