|The U.S.S. Lafitte, chartered in 2010, is a proud chapter member of Starfleet International. Our mission is to apply the unique talents of our members in the furtherance of community outreach and assistance, improving the lives of others as well as ourselves, and have great fun doing it.|
The journey of the U.S.S. Lafitte began via the desire to bring Sci-fi/Fantasy fandom to an area where the genre is not universally appreciated. The fruits of that dream are apparent in the U.S.S. Lafitte and the endeavors we successfully support and cultivate. Through our efforts, a local convention has seen great success and growth, local charities have benefited, and our ‘family’ has grown.
Our members are an eclectic lot, with interests including, but not limited to, Sci-fi/Fantasy, Anime, Gaming, Cosplay, and the Sciences. We hold group screenings of various Science Fiction films and television series, attend conventions across Louisiana and Texas, the south, and even the contiguous United States as far away as Seattle, San Diego, Atlanta and New York. Though primarily a “Star Trek” entity, we also enjoy Whoverse, Whedonverse, Star Wars, J.J. Abrams productions, Studio JMS, and Classic & Reimagined Battlestar Galactica, just to name a few.
Members now under the U.S.S. Lafitte banner will celebrate our 20th anniversary as a coactive entity in 2014, having survived many trials and changes. We’re always looking for new members to come aboard and explore the final frontier with us. You can explore and contact us through the following internet media:
