Boldly Winning

Star Trek and Roddenberry remains one of the most recognizable names in Science Fiction and being a part of brings me in contact with some amazingly dedicated fans and websites. Just one example is STARFLEET, the International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. You know is your landing place for the best in Star Trek and Roddenberry merchandise.

What you may not know is that for over 35 years, STARFLEET has provided Star Trek fans a way to meet each other, make friends, have fun, give back to their communities, and show that the dream of Gene Roddenberry can live long and prosper. The match is, literally, made in the heavens (sorry, couldn’t resist).

Recently, joined forces with STARFLEET offering a truly out of this world prize: a Voyager PADD prop. A “postcursor” to the iPad, the Personal Access Display Device allows Starfleet to access data logs, duty rosters and diagnostic reports on the fly while traversing the universe.

Well, one thing that is universally true is that we love to see excited winners and love to share them with you. In that tradition let me introduce you to Jeff Higdon, winner of the PADD:

And lest you think Jeff is just a casual fan that got exceptionally lucky you should know that Jeff is the Region 12 Coordinator of STARFLEET, the International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. He is a Vice Admiral in the organization and serves on the Board of Directors (Admiralty Board). He is also the commanding officer of the USS Black Hawk chapter of STARFLEET, a chapter based in Rockford, Illinois.
