Welcome to the USS Golden Gate
Our mission, which we have elected to accept, is to promote the concept of IDIC (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations) and have fun doing it!
Fandom: the final frontier. This is the USS Golden Gate, the largest Star Trek™/Science Fiction Fan Club based in San Francisco, CA. Her Motto, “Live Long and Party On!!” is also her mission: to make friends and have fun. To explore Science Fiction in all its forms. To seek out diversity in infinite combinations. To boldly give back to her community and live Gene Roddenberry’s dream of an all-inclusive future for mankind.
Membership in the Golden Gate is free. We ask that you join STARFLEET for as little as $5 (individual) or starting at $10 (Families) and choose the USS Golden Gate as your Chapter. Your voyage starts here. Welcome aboard!!
The San Francisco Task Force is made up of the USS Golden Gate, USS Angel, USS NewFoundland and the 49th MSG Marines with their support ships, Aerowing Alcatraz and Aerowing Farallones. These are modelled after ships within the Trek Universe. The fictional mission of the USS Golden Gate is Diplomacy, Medical Aid and Military support. In the real world the Task Force is how the USS Golden Gate members have fun, celebrate Star Trek™ and Science Fiction, support their community, promote safety and neighborhood preparedness, and inspire our younger members through fan events and education.
