This is the weekly post where members can plan meetups for movies, conventions, and misc events.

Just specify the city/country you're in and link to a post in your personal journal where your neighbors can plan the meetup with you. or else check out the list of communities dedicated to these meet-ups  Collapse )


For those of you who were able to document your meetups, please post your pics and recaps here, or better yet link to a post in your own LJ so that the comment pages here don't break the internet.

Last week the USS Macchiato successfully accomplished the Mission: Holiday Party and txrae met a guy called Kirk.

Even if you didn't take any pictures, please feel free to recount the awesomeness of meeting with other GQMF's, any funny conversations or accidental meeting of other Star Trek geeks fans. lol

Punch it!

This comm needs more Nichelle Nichols


So I was browsing the Interwebs today and I found this, and the magazine article (with lots of pics!) that goes with it:

After which I flailed at the hotness and wished madly that I was anywhere near that beautiful and then thought, oh hey, this might be relevant to y'all's interests. So then I checked the tags and found that not only does it appear that this article has not been shared yet, but there is only ONE(!) post tagged as "Nichelle Nichols/Uhura". THIS MUST BE REMEDIED IMMEDIATELY.

HEADS UP: This article was written way back in ye olde '60s, so there are some terms used to refer to women and PoC that were socially acceptable then, but are not acceptable now. Since this is Ebony and they do take a positive view of Star Trek's inclusive vision of the future, I *think* that it's still OK to post. If not, mods, please correct me and I'll remove anything you find uncool.
