The USS Relativity NCV-474439-G is a chapter-member of Starfleet Task Force 31 located in East Hartford, Connecticut.
For over 6 years, Task Force 31 has provided Star Trek fans a way to meet each other, make friends, have fun and experience the dream of Gene Roddenberry. On the local level, members can gather with other fans for a variety of enjoyable activities. On the national level, Starfleet Task Force 31 offers our members a wealth of resources matching or exceeding the other Star Trek fan clubs that are out there. In addition to a great set of membership materials and our new electronic newsletter, Starfleet Task Force 31 offers members the chance to get involved by helping to make Task Force 31 one of the best fan clubs available. We are currently working on the creation of the Starfleet Task Force 31 Starfleet Academy and expanding our very own Starfleet Task Force 31 MACOs and much, much more to come with your help.
Starfleet Task Force 31 Chapters are grouped into Sectors, each Sector covering a different geographical area with the United States of America. These sectors are encouraged to hold gatherings where crews of many Chapters get together for summits, parties, charity activities, and a whole range of other activities.
Starfleet Task Force 31 is further divided into a few dozen of local Chapters at this time, each named as a different starship or space station. Chapters are where the members of Starfleet Task Force 31 get together locally to make friends, meet, and have a fun time. Our many Chapters are currently spread out in 5 states of the United States of America.
Starfleet Task Force 31 Chapters range in size from 3 members to over 25+. Some get together and meet in person while others are correspondence Chapters where members who live far away from each other can still exchange messages via e-mail, telephone, and even good, old-fashioned postal mail.

We’re also dedicated to making the world a better place. Not all members participate in our community service projects. To understand further, let’s beam down for a moment to Afghanistan, where U.S. soldiers have received care packages from USS Relativity members. Back in Connecticut, we’ve collected Labels for Education and during the holidays we collect donations for the areas Toys for Tots campaign and the Angel Tree Project. We’ve also participated in food can drives and recycling.
That’s just an example of how our community service is actually global service and because of our efforts to embrace the ideals of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, we’re doing our part to meet his vision of a better world.
