What would a convention be without fan groups?
The U.S.S. Navras can be defined as another in a long list of Star Trek fan clubs. The problem is that that description doesn’t really do us justice, because it fails to properly explain the actual depth of who and what we are– which is a group of devoted Star Trek fans, young and old, from every walk of life, who have come together to make something very special and very unique to Star Trek fandom.
The U.S.S. Navras is a correspondence chapter of STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc.– meaning that men, women, and children from all over the world can actively join and participate in what we have to offer. But more than that, we are a ship of people with fresh ideas and eager ambitions who are looking to revolutionize the way people conceive Star Trek fandom. We make event appearances in full uniform and prosthetic makeup, we organize ceremonies and tournaments, we play games (both online and offline) with each other, we collect for a number of charities, and we promote an interest and appreciation in Gene Roddenberry’s legacy to the very best of our ability.
We also extend an open invitation to those like-minded individuals, regardless of who or what they are, to join us in our efforts and our adventures. And while we are based out of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, we strongly encourage people from all over the world to not only join us, but to get your friends and family involved as well. Put together your own ‘Away Team’ to make costumed appearances with. You’ll never experience anything quite like the magic that happens when you and a half-dozen of your friends show up at a convention in uniform and makeup.
We are a fan/costuming group based out of Lafayette, Louisiana. We have open membership and encourage anyone interested in Stargate cosplay or roleplaying to join. There are no dues and no minimum attendance at conventions and events. It is purely for fun. We attend conventions in Louisiana and neighboring states and also hold other events such as airsoft battles, BBQs, camping weekends, etc. Our goal is to have a little fun and when possible to raise some money for local charities.

Calcasieu Area Trekkers Society
The Calcasieu Area Trekkers Society (C.A.T.S.) was the dream of one dedicated trekker to bring organized science fiction fandom to Southwest Louisiana. Stuart K. Griggs, a lifelong resident of Lake Charles, had long sought to share his enjoyment of star trek and science fiction in general with other fans in an area where the genre is not universally appreciated. Despite the odds and investing his own funds into the effort, Griggs successfully launched C.A.T.S. in July 1994 with a small group of charter members. Many of those members are still active with the club for over 15 years since its founding. The Trekkers society will celebrate its 19th anniversary in July 2013 having survived the times and changing membership roster. Did you know that 80 percent of all star trek fan clubs started in America go belly-up after only 2 years in existence? The club has a dedicated a group of members that enjoys not only star trek but also other science fiction productions such as Babylon 5, Firefly, Star Wars, Lost, Fringe, the Reimagined Battlestar Galactica, and much more. in addition to screenings of various science fiction films and television series our members also attend as a group other conventions in the country and has theatrical film screenings on occasion. But mostly C.A.T.S. members have fun sharing the science fiction experience. Right now the Trekkers society is looking for new members to come aboard and explore the final frontier with us. Our group is also the local region 3 Starfleet international chapter known as the U.S.S. Lafitte. For more information on C.A.T.S and the U.S.S. Lafitte please visit our website http://www.usslafitte.com
