AER: Stillwater Fleet Dinner


AER: Stillwater Fleet Dinner

The KAG vessel IKV Melota cruised to a gathering of Oklahoma and Kansas fandom in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Represented were the USS Arcturus, USS Noble, USS Allegiant and the RMS Hydra.

We met at "Mexico Joes" which is apparently a third element of the "Eskimo Joes" chain. The food and service was quite good actually. And, they tolerated us well.

Stillwater was chosen as a "central meeting area" as it is near equidistant for all of the ships present except for the IKV Melota. This was the first of planned regular "central meetings" of Star Trek fandom ships in that area.

We were just raiding and not part of the original invite. We just thought that it would be great to get to visit some fellow fans on their own turf. This is part of my "Force Projection" doctrine.

The discussions at the dinner were a sharing of ideas and experience. Not being KAG, some of their ideas and procedures are different. However, with nearly 17 years of experience, the IKV Melota brought ideas and experience to their table.

We all had a great time. We left full blanks for a batleth and a mekleth with the USS Arcturus.

After the group split up to head back to their respective towns, we pitched a tent at Lake McMurtry and watched the lightning show as storms came in over the water.

This was a great casual gathering of Star Trek fandom. I submit that more KAG ships should cruise the 5 hours to go visit other KAG and non-KAG fan groups.

Strength and Honor
