CHAPTER NEWS


CoronApocalypse! Unfortunately the current Covid-19 Pandemic is putting a cramp in our group events. Beginning in May and until further notice, our monthly meetings will be online Zoom Video gatherings and held twice a month.

Many conventions have been cancelled, rescheduled for later in the year or gone virtual, so please check their website for the latest news and then check again often. Remember to adjust your hotel reservations accordingly.

We are sad to report the recent passing of a much beloved member, Cheryl Gunnett. She’s been with us for many many years sharing our love of Star Trek and Science Fiction. We have enjoyed sharing time with her at various conventions and events. She will be missed.

Title: This is Why Starfleet Needs Gabriel Lorca
By: Kristen McQuinn /February 25, 2020

“Though he is from the Mirror Universe, Lorca reminds viewers that Starfleet does sometimes have to make sacrifices and decisions that may take away pieces of their soul, but which contribute to a more utopian society. Many episodes throughout the franchise have discussed captains or leaders having to be willing and able to order a crew member to their death to save the ship or preserve a mission. Many of Lorca’s actions, while ruthless and even brutal at first glance, mirror and anticipate those of Kirk, Picard, or Sisko. The difference seems to be that these later captains had the actions of their predecessors like Lorca to hold up as examples of what to do and what not to. Hindsight, as they say, is 20/20.”

Bushkill Falls trip 2016

Here are some pics from Bushkill Falls in the lovely Pocono Mountains. Sometimes referred to as the “Niagara of Pennsylvania,” Bushkill Falls is among the Keystone State’s most famous scenic attractions with a 100-ft waterfall plus trails, fishing, boating & other family-friendly activities. We wandered through various trails admiring the fall foliage and gorgeous water falls. Definitely worth a return visit!
