We are always looking for new friends. If you are in one of the patrol areas of a Seventh Fleet Chapter feel free to come by one of the meetings (See the Chapters section to check for nearby clubs). If you are not within a local area we do accept correspondence members. As mentioned previously there is no charge to join the Seventh Fleet or a chapter of the Seventh Fleet. We operate on a pay-your-own-way philosophy. Basically if the group attends an activity where there is an admittance fee (such as a movie) each person would buy their own ticket in. To cover standard operating costs the chapters hold fundraisers throughout the year. We usually ask that those under the age of 14 be accompanied by a parent or guardian at activities.
NOTE: Even though we participate in various form of gaming (including RPGs, Computer Gaming, CCGs and others) we are not an online SIM (Simulation) group.
- Attend two meetings. Most Star Trek fans will attend at least one meeting of a chapter just to see what it is like. Some discover that this is not their cup of Earl Grey tea. Those who wish to continue to have fun with us will return for more encounters. If you are being recruited the recruiter will let you know when and where the meetings are. If you are investigating on your own, feel free to contact the Commanding Officer or Executive Officer of the chapter your interested in. They will inform you of upcoming meetings.
- Fill out an application. This will provide us with your contact information, introduce you to us and start your records. You can also choose which department you wish to join. Also if you were recruited by someone, this is the opportunity to credit them since they would receive Promotional Merit Points. Some chapters may also have a Character Information Sheet for you to fill out as well for a fictional persona.
- Meet the Command Staff- The Command Staff usually consists of the Commanding Officer and Executive Officer. This also starts the introduction into the family and so that they can make you feel welcomed at meetings. At this time, we also welcome you to review the fleet manual, which will give you information about how to advance in rank, and learn more about the fleet.
- Receive your Orders- Once the above requirements have been filled, your application is sent to the Seventh Fleet. Upon its return you will be presented with a Certificate of Membership which contains your Service Number, Initial Rank and Department.
